Folk Ark is a directory of enterprises offering traditionally crafted, ethically sourced goods for the modern market.
Mainstream fashion and design are celebrated and coveted all over the internet; Folk Ark intends to do the same for the growing array of artisan crafts being offered worldwide with style and fun. The aim of the site is to connect consumers with such products via a curated yet comprehensive listing of companies, organisations and individuals with their hearts in tradition and their heads in the marketplace so that you can find and buy beautiful, authentic artisan-made goods with ease and confidence.
The Directory profiles each of these enterprises and is searchable by product type, craft, region and name. The Blog showcases their work and suggests how to incorporate their products into your wardrobe, home and life, as well as enthusing on associated topics. There is no sales platform and there is no cost of any kind to listed companies.
Why the name? Well, sadly I can't resist a pun, but apart from this it chimes with the idea of gathering and preserving something at risk. I hope this ark will live up to its name.
Happy browsing and thank you for visiting,
