OUR PARTNER: FROM THE ROAD
From The Road was born out of a passion for off-the-grid travel and indigenous cultures – and the belief that beautiful objects are not only about the piece themselves, but also about the story behind them. From The Road’s founder, Susan Easton, travels the globe forming collaborations with artisans who use traditional crafts to create unique handmade items. The brand’s goal is to support handmade techniques, and the artisans who practice them, in sustainable ways. Product collaborations are developed to meet the specific needs and resources of the communities where they are produced – rings made in Ecuador are made with locally reclaimed wood. Each co-op or indigenous community that works with From The Road is able to set their own prices and delivery timetable, and all artisans are paid upfront for their work – with the belief that partners should be treated as equals.
