We have long been captivated by the tropics.
It is where we feel most connected to the natural world.
And it was in this tropical paradise, on our very first trip to Indonesia back in 2006, where the seeds for Here & There were planted.
Initially brought there for the warm waves, we quickly found ourselves beckoned to the many local markets in between surfs.
Enamored by the painstakingly detailed batiks and colorful ikat textiles ,among myriad other crafts, each market trip was followed by a very stressful motorbike ride home, with bags of our new treasures perched precariously on our laps or squeezed around my husband's feet.
Thereafter, with each visit, our knowledge and love for traditional weaving deepened, and from there led us to learn and explore weaving traditions in other parts of the world.
Traditional Skills Meet Modern Aesthetics
We think that act of skilled hands, guided by ancestors, weaving materials into art and cloth is a remarkable and beautiful thing important to preserve.
Many of our pieces are made using techniques practiced by indigenous communities in their region for generations upon generations.
Here & There aims to honor these culturally important practices to bring you intentionally designed apparel and textiles that incorporate traditional textiles and weaving arts.
We are proud to bring you pieces from Indonesia, Guatemala, and Mexico, where we've partnered with individual artisans, artisan cooperatives, and small, family-owned businesses.
We hope that our products bring you joy and breathe a bit of the tropics into your life, even if they’re world’s away.
