a wealth of ideas
Founded in 1999 with a passion for quality craftsmanship, we have made it our mission to source the very best work from skilled and talented artisans from around the world.
We want to share our accrued knowledge for craftsmanship with your business and become an indispensable resource, making it easy for you to browse and buy these exciting handmade pieces all in one convenient place.
We seek to make the world just a tiny bit smaller by bringing incredible pieces from small workshops in Italy, home of some of the world's finest craftsmen ... to India, the Guru of leather and textiles to Thailand an elegant and thriving marketplace of handmade workmanship.
We work hard with all of these communities, to raise standards and push handmade products forward. In the case of suppliers from developing nations, it's important to point out that we are engaged in fair trade policies. In most cases we are dealing one on one with small, often family run businesses much like ours. We have been working with many of them for 20 years now. We like to think we must be doing something right!
Part of our mission is to push our exclusive handmade brands forward, LEATHERKIND ®, Life Arts ® & Blue Witch ®. We are working globally to increase exposure for these products and are actively seeking retail partners to be a part of this success. Wether you are a multinational or stall holder on a craft market, we want to hear from you.
Our motto in business and in life has always been win / win. If we are both not winning then something is wrong. For us it is truly the only path worth taking towards business prosperity.
