Makers Travelers was started when Megan and Tyler left their jobs and comforts
of home and traveled through SE Asia. They were drawn to the traditional crafts
they discovered in each new region they visited. They began working with artisans to make custom items for their own travels - a blanket here and a bag there. What started as little handmade mementos from their time abroad, quickly became an idea to bring these beautiful goods to a larger audience, helping to share traditional craft with people around the world, and to provide support to artisans in developing countries.
Working together with independent artisans, cooperatives and non-profits,
Makers Travelers is able to create one-of-a-kind custom items that help preserve
traditional craft yet create modern, functional items with the traveler in mind.
Makers Travelers is committed to fair trade principals and every purchase directly helps generate
meaningful income for partner artisans and their families.
