With her love for delicately crafted handmade items, Alaria was founded by Rebecca Pisani in 2019 with the hopes of creating an international gateway that shines a light on handmade artisan products from around the world. Every item on our site and in our store is carefully curated, handpicking the most thoughtful designs that tell a story, a story by hardworking marginalised and vulnerable communities. We aim to provide them with a platform to showcase their products for consumers to enjoy. We believe there is something honest and authentic about handmade items and through the digital world we wish to inspire a sense of Connection, from one Community to another.
Here at Alaria, we value handmade items, made with conscious materials, and created in a friendly working environment. We believe everyone should be treated equally & fairy and strive to partner with brands who align with our philosophies.
We value small brands who work towards maintaining their own tradition whilst providing an income for the artisans they work with. With the brands we partner up with, we try to raise awareness to our consumers that traditional weaving, fabrics and techniques can be enjoyed, loved and praised worldwide without the cost of human lives or harm to the environment we live in.
Our vision is to educate our customers on the value of handmade products & to begin shifting the perspective of craftsmanship. We aspire to anchor the idea that dedication & care to building such beautiful products take a lot of time & a whole lot of love. Our vision is to keep Connecting to global artisans through the organic growth of our journey & community – enabling them to have access to safe working conditions, living wages & fair treatment. Alaria partners with brands & their communities that ensure these standards are met.
We aspire to create a friendly open space, where like minded people & curious customers can browse through a variety of handmade items. We strive to enlighten our customers on the importance of carefully made products, providing a new market & creating an invisible connection between you, the buyer and the maker. Most importantly, we wish for you to love your products and honour the people that made them.
