Mela Artisans blends traditional handcrafting techniques with contemporary design in home and fashion to promote social uplift in artisan communities. Artisans around the world struggle to preserve age-old traditions and techniques in a fast-paced, mechanized world. We hope that by helping them access new markets we can ensure their livelihoods and keep their heritage alive. We forge personal relationships with our artisans and contribute a portion of our total revenue to promoting health, education, and development projects within artisan communities. Our vision is to provide a sustainable global market for artisans while fostering entrepreneurship within their communities. By creating this easy-to-access platform, our customers can buy these handmade creations and learn about the techniques used to craft them. Your purchase contributes to the livelihood of an artisan family, helping to ensure the survival of ancient artistic techniques that might otherwise be forgotten. In these tough times, we need to keep things in perspective. Buying beautiful home goods or jewelry is not essential, however making sure that our artisans have jobs and can preserve their crafts is critical to us at Mela Artisans. In order to recognize the incredible contributions of these artisans, and their current challenges, through the end of May, 2020, Mela Artisans is giving half of all profits from purchases on this site directly to the artisans who have been working for us during the past year.
