ARTISANS & ADVENTURERS
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 we 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.
