Handmade, Unique Gifts Empowering Women Worldwide. Free shipping on orders $50 or more.

Each collection created by Artisans Thrive is a labor of love. It begins with a vision, crafted by our team, our artisans, our customers, and our volunteers, including our Design Committee. It then becomes an iterative process of working with our partners over a series of months to make just the right product and at the same time, ensure that our collection is cohesive. We are proud to launch our new Spring | Summer Collection, which we think is our best yet. You’ll find lots of new goodies, including many custom items you won’t find elsewhere.

If you spend an afternoon walking through the quaint, dirt roads scattered around Buea, Cameroon, you may hear the hum, hustle, and bustle of many pedal machines fast at work. The textile and designing business is thriving throughout the city; everywhere you go, you can spot women in the streets wearing original designs, boasting the bold, colorful, unique patterns found only in Africa. If you look closely, many of the women work alone, or with a partner, or even one or two apprentices in their shop. There hasn’t been anything to unite these designers and seamstresses. We began discussing options for this project back in July 2017. Read More
