Artisans + Adventurers aim is to be the go-to source for contemporary sustainable design: In addition to their in-house collections of jewellery and homeware, they champion other small brands and designer/makers with great product and a beautiful story.
Accessories designer Amy Fleuriot and craft development expert Bee Friedmann first met in 2011 while walking their dogs in London Fields Park in Hackney, London. They quickly discovered a common love for design, animals, and sustainability, and set off together on a 6 week product research adventure to East Africa. It was this trip that provided the inspiration to start Artisans & Adventurers.
With it’s office and flagship store located on Columbia Road flower market in vibrant East London, Artisans & Adventurers gives traditional craft modern appeal by combining a minimalist aesthetic with a love of colour and print. Producing its collections in collaboration with small-scale artisans and craft groups that would otherwise not have access to international markets.
From chocolate to cushions, and jewellery to woven baskets, A&A’s goal is to bring a little bit of joy to every day objects. The nature of the global supply chain means our decisions as consumers affect people all around the world, so A&A strive to source products which bring as much joy to their creator as they do to the end customer.
We believe that every purchase can be made consciously to live a stylish sustainable lifestyle.
