We are an online marketplace, and an on-the-ground network of partners and managers who go that extra mile to connect offline producers to curious, socially conscious consumers around the world. Our partners and managers serve as virtual representatives for the sellers (somewhat of a concierge service).
In the past year we've grown to present artisan groups from over 36 countries; we've launched a subscription service delivering crafts monthly from around the world to our customers and are about to launch our iOS app. Our platform is built to scale, and we integrate products from many partnering organizations, offering our customers a smooth and engaging shopping experience. Not only are they able to find beautiful, one-of-a-kind products that express their style, they learn where these products come from and who the makers are, which makes the products themselves more valuable to the customer.
