Carrying tales of artisan empowerment and traditional craftsmanship preservation, our homeware fabric collection is timeless and meant to last.

In partnership with artisans from Guatemala, our selection of cotton and wool homeware contributes to preserving ancestral techniques while supporting rural communities across the country. For over 24 years, this art has been contributing to the indigenous community. Each piece is created by an artisan that mastered the technique of weaving natural color cotton with care + detail. 

These initiatives help artisans make a living out of their traditional craft, improving their lives and providing a solution to extreme poverty in rural communities through unique employment opportunities.

Weaving traditional artisanship into modern aesthetics, each item is carefully handcrafted using locally-sourced natural materials, such as artisanal wool, sustainably grown and undyed cotton, maguey fibres, and upcycled denim. Our artisans transform these natural materials into beautiful designs through ancestral techniques, such as backstrap and foot loom weaving and square weaving, using a sustainable approach to preserve the land. 

Each item sold by Department of Artisans employs an equal profit-sharing model.

Simply put, we make as much as our artisans do. The average split for each product is 40% artisan contribution, 40% DOA contribution, 20% importing + shipping fees. This means, our profits are the same as our artisans and we don't mark-up our prices like traditional retailers.

The 40% artisan contribution goes towards the cost of materials, the maker, and the project manager. The 40% DOA contribution goes towards marketing + operating expenses, and community initiatives. The 20% importing + shipping fees is paid out to each country during the exporting/importing process.

All shipments are securely packaged for safe and prompt delivery. We are happy to offer shipping worldwide. Please allow 1-2 business days for order processing.
