We believe in the beauty and quality of pieces that are hand made and that the traditions, heritage and craft of artisans should be kept alive and celebrated. We also believe that supporting communities by helping them keep alive and developing their craft has incredible value. Not only does it permit an alternative to mass-produced items and the conditions they are produced in, it empowers communities financially and socially.
That is why we find talented artisan communities around the world with whom to partner and to produce our selected collections of home goods & accessories. With each collection being created by a different community in different parts of the globe, each piece has its own history imparted with a different time-tested craft technique.
As we discover and develop our relationships with new artisan partners, we aim to visit each group and spend time with them, to get to know them, their culture and the way they work. Personally travelling to meet the artisans whenever possible and building lasting relationships allows us to see for ourselves that the fair treatment and positive work environments of the artisans is maintained. By forming long lasting relationships with the groups and producing collections on a continuous basis, we aim to offer artisans a sustainable source of income year round.
We believe in being transparent with our artisans and customers. You deserve to know why we charge what we do.
It can take weeks to complete one of our pieces. And for this work we pay our partners fair wages above the established norm. We always pay for sampling and we never push down prices.
We use only the best quality raw materials, textiles and finishing to complement the incredible handwork.
We work with on the ground production partners that are also social businesses.
Our supply chain is complex and shipping, taxes and duty costs all add up. We are always looking to optimize our supply chain and will pass on any savings to you.
We sell directly to you so that we can eliminate the costs of the middle man, and keep our mark ups below the retailing norm.
