MEET OUR ARTISANS
Most of our artisans are mothers who have difficult schedules, and must fit in working between caring for their children and home, with learning a new language and navigating the challenges of living in a new country after having left much behind.
PARTNER WITH US
If you are interested in hiring our artisans to make your products, or you would like to sell our products at your store, please get in touch! We do custom small-batch ethical manufacturing of jewelry, clothing, accessories, or other goods which might be sewn.
