Aluna co-designs and produces handmade objects in direct collaboration with indigenous artisans.
Indigenous art is a repository of ancestral knowledge, wisdom, and expertise. Each object captures cultural tenets, cosmologies, and values crucial for the proper functioning and perpetuation of societies.
Preserving indigenous cultures and heritage is key to preserving human cultural diversity. Indigenous peoples are inheritors and practitioners of unique and different ways of interacting among themselves and the environment, thereby making them crucial actors in the fight against climate change.
As a company, we believe firmly in the power of building direct commercial relationships with the communities. By providing a sustainable, fair and direct source of income and by raising awareness of the importance of indigenous peoples for all of human kind, indigenous people can continue fulfilling their role on our planet.
