The Artisan

Celestina Anguli is from a small Amazonian community named 'Runuya'. From a very young age, Celestina learnt how to embroider from her grandmother and has been practising her ancestral art for over 25 years. This art supports her family she explains how important it is for her to practice this every day to continue her tradition, the always improve and to survive in today's society.

For most Shipibo communities selling of this Ancestral art is often the main source of income, and their work has very limited exposure, mostly limited to few passing seasonal tourists. Our project provides a free service for the artisans enabling them to market their craft worldwide.

Our project provides artisans like Celestina with a free platform to help sell her art to the world. We ensure that the artisans we work with always receive 100% of their full asking price and we send return 1/6th of each purchase to amazonian permaculture projects. So you can feel assured that your purchase is positively impacting on the people of the Amazon and the planet.
