We deliver joy by empowering and connecting remarkable, remote artisans to mindful customers.
We love curating and sharing sublime creations made by hand with our community. We search the world for exceptional craftwork created by artists in small collectives where their techniques are rapidly vanishing. We believe that through our success, we can excite young artisans to learn these incredible techniques from their elders to help their art thrive.
It’s our passion to discover extraordinary, useful finds from all over the globe and share them with you. Our shop features products sourced from direct relationships with artisans as well as vetted partner organizations. From Mexican woven baskets to Ghanaian coasters, each handcrafted good we share with you is remarkably distinct.Shop the Marketplace
