Shokunin Artisans

Global Shokunin is committed to promoting entrepreneurship and empowerment within artisan communities by connecting them to global consumers, and fostering appreciation of cultural diversity and sustainable consumption.

What is Global Shokunin?

Shokunin is the Japanese word for an Artisan. However, the essence of Shokunin is to practice a craft with deep spiritual dedication for the advancement of societal goals. At Global Shokunin, we are striving to achieve the holistic goals of creating a more equitable and peaceful world. We partner with artisan communities and connect them to global consumers by showcasing exquisite handicrafts. We tell stories of global artisans and crafts in fostering an appreciation of cultural diversity and sustainable consumption.  

Join us on a journey to explore the world of artisans, the organizations that support them, and the unique crafts that are part of our global heritage. Your purchase keeps alive ancient handcrafting traditions and creates employment for artisans all over the world. We invite you to be a Shokunin Cultural Ambassador!

    Our Team 

    At Global Shokunin, we are inspired by the stories of hundreds of artisans and their courageous journeys. Their stories of perseverance are a reminder that "while talent is universal, opportunities are not." We are striving to change that by working with immigrant communities, fair-trade organizations and NGOs around the world. 

    We are a group of diverse women from across the globe, with deep and broad multi-sector experience which we are leveraging to build bridges of peace and prosperity.
