Working with artisans around the world
Provenance™ is dedicated to providing an outlet for artisans from around the world; showcasing beautiful textiles handcrafted using traditional techniques.
Founders Yvonne and Amanda Stewart are committed to a Fair Trade business model, combining their passion for traditional textiles with a desire to support and sustain artisans enabling them to flourish.
Yvonne and Amanda have many years of experience in textiles with a special interest and understanding of traditional handcrafted textiles. Yvonne (MA(HONS) | BA | TTed(cert)) is currently teaching at tertiary level within the field of art & design and Amanda has a background in home textiles. Both have combined their talents and knowledge to develop the Provenance™ range.
After travelling to many countries watching and talking to skilled artisans creating unique textiles with original patterns and dyes, Amanda and Yvonne want to bring those wonderful techniques and textiles to Australasia to be accessed by our own artisans.
With this unique range of textiles artisans can create their own original works, home-wares, or even apparel. To make projects even more special, Provenance encloses a Certificate of Authenticity with textile purchases over a certain value and a sew-in label verifying the country of origin, artisan and technique used.
By applying the Fair Trade principles outlined by the World Fair Trade Organisation, the Provenance™ team hope to create a sustainable outlet for global artisans and a unique source of traditional textiles for local artisans.
If you would like help to create your own projects from the Provenance™ range or simply wish to discuss your special textile requirements please contact the Provenance™ team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
