Artemateria brings together innovative contemporary designers and artisan communities in the developing world. Our goal is to support artisans integrate their millinery techniques into art products that are high quality, unique, environmentally friendly and functional. The final result is an avant-garde product with a soul, faithful to the people that gave it form and in harmony with their traditions and surroundings. They take pride in being a social conscious business working with extremely talented yet impoverished communities in an effort to safeguard rare artisanal skills passed throughout generations. Artemateria's goal is to help provide a continuous and fair source of income, prevent displacement and enable artisan communities to preserve their traditions and way of life, while gradually improving their living conditions.
