Two sisters fell in love with the hand made work of local women in Senegal and decided this beautiful work needed to be shared with a wider audience. And so, Artisanne was created as a means of sharing the incredible talent of these Senegalese women.
The founders of Artisanne work directly with the artisans of these baskets to ensure that that they are appropriately paid, treated and respected. This also ensures the best quality product for buyers of these tremendous designs.
Artisanne is connecting quality designs with an audience that appreciates quality craft that is sourced in an ethical and socially responsible way. The more share companies like Artisanne the more confident I am that we are on the right track to establishing consumerism that is based on quality rather than quantity.
