San Francisco Bay Area – The Armenian International Women’s Association SF/Bay Area (AIWA-SF) affiliate announces today a partnership with Dádiva Shop (www.dadivashop.com). The online store offers one-of-a-kind artisan pieces from Armenia and the diaspora.
Dádiva Shop features Armenian artists from around the world including Armenia, Syria, New York, and Los Angeles. In a world of high production, immediate purchases, it is easy to undervalue handmade craft. That’s why Dádiva Shop seeks to empower creators to sell their products and tell their stories. It’s incredible to see the quality, love and dedication that goes into each item. No two handmade dolls or necklaces are the same. These artists create their pieces using ageless techniques passed down from one generation to another. Some write music others design intricate dolls and necklaces. Every item on Dádiva Shop tells a beautiful story.
Any Dádiva Shop purchase is an investment in the artist and their craft. Karenn Chutjian Presti, creator of My First Armenian Songbook says, “Dádiva Shop is imbued with tastfulness, from the aesthetically pleasing website to the unique items on sale.”
“I love Dádiva Shop’s mission of empowering Armenian artists and exposing the potential and hidden talents of these creators,” shared UC Berkeley student, Vardui Grigoryan. “I think it is important to protect our cultural heritage and Dádiva Shop exercise this very idea.”
Percentage of all sales will be donated to charity and help expose the extraordinary stories of artists from across the diaspora.
