Supporting local artisans and ethical production
Ethical production is a must at Golden & Pine. Their designs come from all around the world, handcrafted by indigenous artisans or produced ethically in factories that pay a living wage, have good working conditions and guarantee no child labor. Armadillo and Co., a rug line they carry, is the perfect example. They are Australian designed and ethically handmade in India. Armadillo and Co. is so committed to the community where their artisans live that they have used profits to start a school for girls that many of the artisan’s children attend.
Whenever possible, Golden & Pine also love to support the best local and regional designers they can find. They have done particularly well with local ceramics as two of their best sellers are Veak Ceramics, owned by Sarah Veak who produces her line at the Belger Arts Studios in the Crossroads, and The Object Enthusiast owned by Emily Veak. They love supporting locals like these who make their full time career as artists.
