Company Summary

Artisan Online is an e-commerce business where customers can buy traditional hand-made goods online for the first time. Artisan Online allows craftsmen in developing markets to sell to end consumers, rather than to a series of middle-men, who normally do not give craftsmen a fair share of profits. Better margins and real-time feedback on products enables artisans to innovate and to improve the quality of their handicrafts.
