Follow our journey
The heart of each product
All of our products are design-led and on-trend to fit the modern world. Using age-old techniques and traditional customs from the communities in which we manufacture, we design everything in house to fit our customers’ needs and then send our development sheets and/or 3D printed models over to one of our 40 artisan producer groups based in the developing world.
When we started our company, we set a goal to not only empower the communities we work with but also take you on the journey with us. We want you to understand where your purchases comes from, who makes them and what makes the place in which they are made so special.
