Dan and Dara Brewster are bringing the undiscovered work of craftspeople from around the globe to a new online marketplace, DARA Artisans.

As global travelers who are constantly in contact with craftspeople and their designs (whether traveling through Shanghai, Syria or Borneo), Dan and Dara Brewster recognized an opportunity to bring undiscovered work to a larger audience—while at the same time giving increased economic power to the people who deserve it. Thus was born the new online marketplace DARA Artisans, where users can find, say, Laotian weavings (top; price upon request), platters from Uzbekistan (far left; $450) or Native American pottery (left; prices upon request).
