"We believe in creating meaningful connections to the products that surround us."
Department of Artisans is a social enterprise focusing on traditional design techniques with a modern + minimal aesthetic. We believe in creating meaningful connections to the products that surround us. Working with over 100 artisans globally, each product is handcrafted with purpose. We aim to create career opportunities in villages across the world, mentor and empower entrepreneurship, and sustain culture through lost craft. By cutting out the middleman and creating products directly with our artisans + selling direct-to-consumer, we're able to engage in an equal profitability model. This means, our profits are the same as our artisans and we don't mark-up our prices like traditional retailers. You'll see throughout the site that each product showcases how the profit is divided. We believe in complete transparency.
