Works and creations are exhibited online and then shipped directly from workshops to the customer using FEDEX services. This secure website aspires to become a modern, international showcase. Artist and artisan profiles are provided in depth and given pride of place to promote the human dimension and reassure customers of the authentic skillsof each of our creative partners.
