Our Principles



Value tradition. Buy good stuff. Spread the love.


“Chakrana” is a Quechua expression that means “to cultivate”.  With a simple vision and a pure design aesthetic, our goal is to cultivate relationships with our customers, to cultivate connections between consumer and producer, and to cultivate collaborations that preserve traditions.

We purchase all of our products based on ethical principles of fair trade and sustainability. We respect and celebrate cultural traditions and artisan work.  We strive to purchase products directly from the artisans themselves, whether vintage or new, in order to help preserve the unique cultural heritages that are in danger of becoming extinct in many parts of the world.
