ABOUT MINNA

We care about the world and our place in it. Preserving the ancient craft techniques we work with is important to us — we strive to do our part in ensuring that these crafts, and the history, language, and culture that surrounds them, endure in the face of mass production. By pairing traditional methods with a contemporary platform, we can assist in bringing the work of our artisan partners to a wider market.

We work with family-run workshops and independently-run cooperatives. Our process is highly collaborative, and we trust the workmanship, skill, and knowledge of our artisan partners. The artisans set their own wages, and we are committed to following fair trade practices in all aspects of our business. Many of the artisans have been working in their mediums for generations and are masters at their craft. We seek out partners who are interested in design innovation and thinking outside the box. Our artisan partners are our close friends and collaborators, as well as our biggest source of inspiration.
