Joy in Color is VERO, the heartbeat of our shop. Vero has taught every one of our Artisans how to sew, tailor and design fashion! Her favorite song is Red Red Wine by UB40. You can always hear her singing in our shop even through the open windows on Market Road.

For the artisan, craft is an end in itself. For you, the artist, craft is the vehicle for expressing your vision. Craft is the visible edge of art. So let's have a look on this exquisite silver tureen(silver urli) stands on outstretched silver elephants.
Mesmerising work on its carving makes it more prodigious.
Grab this beautiful handmade silver craft which reflects a luxurious home decor story.

SPRING BREAK, Taking a vacation. 🌍🌴 Below read a letter from our co-founder Devon.
May we never lose our wonder. May we never stop believing in the dreams and stories that were placed on our hearts, to inspire us to make history. I want to see the world saturated in color and wonder and beauty and hope again. And believe that we can end poverty, if we all work together. United in song, but unique in color.
As I painted this multicultural and multicolored world, I realized the imprint of beauty and story that we as artisans, add to the world. When we take our time, rest, reevaluate and when we love people at our best -- we paint a world that will bring awe to generations to come. Our creativity should inspire compassion and collaboration, and if it becomes about competition then we have lost sight of our goal.
At Artisan we are re-learning how to tell a more vibrant and authentic story across borders. We will be taking a spring break from social media this month, to discover new truths, explore global partnerships, develop our ARTISAN brand and refresh our hearts and perspectives. A New website, products, business models, global photoshoots, magazine articles and more are to come in 2016!
Thanks to everyone who has supported us thus far, we can't wait to share the adventures ahead with you. - Devon

Using creativity to rise above poverty, our Artisans are their own keys to unlock their freedom. We desire to see entire families to be lifted out of poverty by empowered women and men artists (locally and globally). Ending poverty is a large goal, but by investing in and training creative problem solvers we are encouraging leaders that will lift a generation.
Thankful for the intentional listening, relational building and storytelling by #etherealcollective this month. Read their blog link in profile- etherealcollective.org #globalgoals #creativeAfrica #endpoverty #globalcitizen #makers #africarising #Artisanglobal

@Regrann from @artisanappareluganda - Be bold, Be brave, Be you.
Our co-founder Devon started Artisan with Ketty because they both saw the potential of creative women in Uganda and had an immense desire to help unlock that potential and affirm their vibrant and beautiful identities. Through collaboration and friendship, two cultures united and ignited into a dream bigger than our team knew was possible. It almost seems like a fairytale sometimes.
We can't quantify the exact number of the hundreds of women that have been empowered over the last 2 years, but we can tell by the response in Uganda, E. Africa, Europe, Canada, Australia and the US - that these women have a new boldness, a new bravery and are stepping into stories of their best selves. We are so excited for 2016 and We Look Forward to all there is to come! #africanprint #fashiondesign #ankarastyles #boldbraveyou #artisanGlobal #bloomYellow #Regrann

Our beautiful co-founder and Ugandan director @kettypromise took a trip to Botswana this week! It was her first time out of the country. We're excited to see how experiencing a new culture and exploring a new nation will inspire her with new ideas for Artisan. Ketty is beyond gifted in creativity and execution, and going to a new place always brings forth new ideas.
There are new designs to come.

Never underestimate or undervalue the photographer. Rarely does a photographer get recognized for their work when they are one of the best storytellers this world has. @kristajefferson thank you for not only investing in our Artisans but taking stunning photos for us.

Working on a new website for ArtisanApparel! Trying to schedule photoshoots for the new clothes that arrived in the US and get them ready for ordering! Applying to grants... It seems like there's never enough time in the month to do it all. One of my best friends though always reminds me ONE STEP AT A TIME. In Uganda there's a saying "Kamu, Kamu" which means "slowly slowly." Before you get overwhelmed, which we're prone to do -- take a moment to take inventory on your joy, your passion and remember why you love your job and ideas and the people you work with. Get excited about prospects on the horizon and aim for things within reach and just out reach. Most importantly enjoy the journey, it's a process and one step at a time you will reach your goals! πŸ“ˆπŸ† #websitedesign #bloomyellow #empowerment #endpoverty #creativeafrica #artisanglobal

600 followers! We're thankful for each and every one of you. 600 might not seem like a lot, but just a few months ago we were barely at 100. Huge thanks to our faithful supporters who have shared our Artisan story. It all started with these two beautiful women Ketty & Veronica, they were a creative team working out of a hut in Gulu. Now they both run two shops in Uganda and are about to start a business in the US soon!!

Guess how many Artisans created this bag? 1) Anthony our carpenter in Kampala who hand carved the wooden handles. 2) Ketty in Gulu who chose the fabrics and created the style 3) Devon in L.A. who designed the idea 4) Krista in Canada who gave design direction and took this photo! 5) Veronica in Gulu who sewed this carefully on her machine.

It takes a village. Artisan products are created by Global Artisans, a team of people uniting cultures and ideas to create unique and beautiful things!

Hey all Devon here with this #tbt STORY moment! 2 years ago in March I was sitting in the shade under this thatched roof hut not knowing what was ahead. I was fully present in that moment, sitting next to this family, in the war torn village of Barlonyo and just praying for clarity of how I could use the gifts I have been given to serve and support these beautiful people. I recognized that the war in Uganda instilled this powerful beauty and resilience in the people that could inspire the world. Artisan started out of a desire of mine and Ketty's to help a community that had seen the worst of war, and equip them to produce stories of beauty. The last year we worked very hard together and produced this vision. The apparel designs that are dreamed up in our studio in Gulu, are coming from people who have experienced suffering and struggle, poverty and war. My job was to be a creative friend and come alongside the team and show them their worth and potential.
_
Each article of clothing tells a greater story. Ketty and I both believe that when people are empowered (by kind words and clothes they feel great wearing) that it can inspire that person to be greater and do great things. We hope today you are empowered to be your best self! Wear what makes you happy and brightens your identity. β˜€οΈ #bethechange #onmission #lovedoes #ArtisanGlobal #missions #serve #lovewell #begenerous #blessedtobless #yourstory #artisanDevon

Our goal is to constantly dream up new designs. Images and apparel that's not available anywhere else. These bags were designed by multiple artisans in multiple cities and countries. Anthony our carpenter hand carves the handles, Veronica sews the bags, Devon adds direction for the design and Ketty brings the ideas to life and manages the product. A team of creative people working together can cause an overflow of creativity, that results in one of a kind, designs!

Meet Ocen! This man holds so much talent in his hands. In his small shack, just down the street from us he creates, he paints and offers art lessons to youth in Gulu. We are glad to be neighbors with such a creative guy (see previous post of #Kitengeearrings). Ocen will be displaying at our #ArtisanLaunch this week! Our focus is empowering people and that means other Artisans in our community too! When we invite people to be a part of Our story, good things happen out of that humble invitation. #artisans #artisanempowerment #artisanGlobal #invitation #africantalent #creativeAfrica #endpoverty #artistic #kitenge #africanArtists #artlessons #creativity #servethecommunity #loveyourneighbor #creativeneighborhood #workshop

Using @Skype, texts, photos, voice memos and joyful laughter we are able to make beautiful things together. 100% of the cost of the dress and time to create it is given back to the Business in Uganda.
