Handwork Studio operates at the intersection of craft, commerce, research and design, mobilizing high levels of skill and tradition to sustain local communities while re-contextualizing traditional artisan techniques within a contemporary design aesthetic.
In addition to developing our own collections and working with organizations around the world, we are always interested in collaborating on new projects with interior or fashion designers and with retailers.
The Handwork Studio team consists of experienced Canadian designers Munira Amin and Rachel MacHenry. With ongoing connections in Pakistan, India, Nepal, Haiti and now Peru, the studio provides design services for artisan-based production. Through a network of specialized craft and technical associates, the studio offers design consultation to a variety of artisan focused enterprises including government trade facilitation offices, import and design companies, artisan organizations and international development institutions. Handwork Studio is committed to design innovation through socially and environmentally sustainable methods.
