DCDT: How are you preparing for the 2020 holiday season?
AP: “Fulfilling orders of our stores, buyers and customers in the U.S. and internationally.”
DCDT: What items are you spotlighting for sale this season and why?
AP: “We rarely keep our items on sale as it is fairly priced and ethically made, which means we pay fair wages to our artisans and use only the most premium qualities of yarns and eco-friendly dyes. We have a small set of selected scarves on sale for a limited time only.”
DCDT: How are you adapting your work and making it accessible amid the pandemic?
AP: “Having an online presence surely helps, which is what I have further enabled by investing more in our own online shop and overall retail presence and partnerships.”
DCDT: Where are you personally shopping for gifts?
AP: “I shop for handmade gifts directly from artisans and small local shops when I am traveling. In Detroit, I like Corbé Ceramics, Pewabic Pottery and Bon Bon Bon.”
