      passionately committed

      I am passionately committed to seeing artisan skills being retained and artisans obtaining sustainable economic independence. I do this by finding people who have the desire to improve their life and of those around them. In India I have connected with some inspiring families and I work with them to improve their business and assist them in finding ways of expanding their revenue.

      I travel regularly to North India to meet with the many families and artisans I purchase from. Their work ethic, passion and love of intricate and textured design is what inspires me to create exclusive pieces that capture the essence of their culture. I want to bring you their story and help you create your own. My passion for providing high-quality and designer options leads me to create unique pieces that offer you a portion of my love of this culture and their practices.
