Hands Around The World
Our one-of-a-kind hand-crafted art are conversation pieces with an international flair, becoming focal points in any home decor. They are time-tested treasures to be passed from generation to generation. We travel all over the world looking for the best in hand-made crafts from many Native American and ethnic groups, particularly in the Far East and Latin America. We go directly to the artist’s home and personally hand-select crafts for quality as well as for cultural and artistic merit. Getting to know the artist personally and being able to relay the story of their life and art is an important aspect of our business. We strive to honor the individual artist and their culture as well as their art.
We endeavor to help preserve the Native American culture as well as their crafts. The goal of Hands Around The World is to bring unique Indian art to you while helping to improve the economic situation of the artists living in their communities. These hand-made imported Native American Indian and ethnic crafts make unique artwork gifts.
Owner Janet Browning began by helping one small Amazon Indian village. She now travels the world over buying directly from the artists to bring handmade treasures home to Jonesborough. A purchase from Hands Around The World means supporting traditional art and artists using fair trade practices. Buying direct also means no middleman and great prices for you!
