Many years ago, a wonderful woman fell in love with the beautiful textiles and traditional techniques of India. She embarked on a mission to find skilled artisans throughout Indian and celebrate their work. She brought their treasured goods back to the United States to people who shared her passion and appreciation for these fragile arts. She continued to seek out highly skilled craftspeople and unique textiles to take back to an ever-expanding demand for goods. She came to be known by the people of India as bright eyes and Asian Eye was born.
Today Asian Eye is owned and operated by us, Robyn and Anne. We are sister who, together with our other sister, mother and small but dedicated staff, share this commitment to quality, beauty and the traditions of indigenous techniques not only practiced in India, but around the world. Based on a collaborative business model that relies on friendship, family and positive living, we strive to maintain these values, while celebrating both the textile and the people we work with every day.
We are proud to support multi-generational, family owned and operated businesses and seek out opportunities to work with talented women entrepreneurs, like ourselves, whenever possible. We support global fair trade efforts to ensure artisans can bring their craft to market in a fair and human way and traditions stay alive.
Distinctive fashion gives people a unique avenue to express themselves. With a passion for the trade, our creative team works directly with artisans to select or create amazing textiles that will honor traditions but also feel unique, modern and alive. Our goal is that each piece will help you find beauty in yourself and feel part of something special.
Let us help you to see beyond the ordinary and discover the extraordinary within yourself.
