Artisan Stories

The artisans that we work with are central to everything that Atharna stands for. They are the reason that we exist. 

The methods, techniques and materials that the artisans work with are the product of their heritage and culture, and simultaneously they breathe life into these traditions so that we can  appreciate and experience them. 

We think it is so important to understand the provenance of such items that hold a cultural  significance and therefore believe that context is key. The stories in this section will help you to  better understand the artisans we partner with and the products they create.
