Our vision is to make the relationship with each Artisan a sustainable longterm process in constant development. When designers and craftsmen spend years and countless hours working together, the respect and the friendship that grows between them result in products that would otherwise not be possible. Boundaries in technical ability and design horizons are continuously being pushed and moved.
Apart from uniting designers and craftsmen, we also aim to unite artisans working with materials to work and develop together. When the abilities and the different materials are merged it introduces a new level of artisanship with endless opportunities. This way we get to combine not only unique craftsmanships from this continent but also its unique cultures and the stories behind.
Traditional artisanship evolves around the materials found in the local areas of the artisans. When we harvest the stone, the wood the wool and the cotton, we try to always do it in a way that creates incomes for the artisans without plundering the Earth that we inhabit. We naturally come to represent globalization in areas where we work. Being aware of this make us responsible for the relationships we build up that can be life changing for some artisans.
