About Our Shop

With Good Cause
Many of our art pieces help support worthwhile causes around the world and here at home in the United States. We are a small company that works with collectives of women, and in some cases men and families. The artisans are able to earn a living by using their creative abilities and skills to produce decorative and functional products. Many of the artists’ skills are traditional and have been handed down from generation to generation. Thank you for helping us bring these unique and beautiful pieces of art to you.
