Hello and Welcome to Agloe!
I few years ago I came across “Monty Don’s Real Craft” television series. It’s about amateur craftsmen (woodworkers, weavers, potters etc.) competing to win a commission from a prestige buyer.
That got me thinking: What’s happening to all the skills that have been passed down from generation to generation to make goods, be they functional or purely ornamental?
That’s why I decided to set up a small company that would support these skills and the people who make a living from it.
I also decided to support craftsmen and communities from developing countries. They need our support more than the multinational corporations that mass produce products.
The product you buy will have a personality and a story behind it and most importantly, you will be helping people and communities make a living and continue with these skills - that's why it will be perfect for you.
