From The Shop
Art of Spirit supports native cultures of the world by importing and selling their ancestral and traditional arts. Through fair trade practices, it is our intention to positively impact the economic status of these communities thereby re-instilling and maintaining a living investment in our native cultures.
As we honor and celebrate the traditional work, we hope to create a shared enthusiasm, appreciation and understanding of the values and customs represented through these cultural expressions of beauty and art. It is our hope to generate and broaden understanding in an effort to create a shared vision for our future.
Our premier collection is from Kashmir, India. This collection features traditional textiles and Pâpier-maché work. This work is incredibly beautiful and intricately detailed. We are also actively compiling a preview collection of work from the indigenous Kichwa culture of the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. Aside from the occasional ‘pop up shop’, our marketing approach is through trunk shows and sales events.
