About Us

Culture Dock brings the village craft market, from destinations across the globe, into the homes of consumers. Open the Culture Dock app and filter by country, product, or organisation to access virtual stores being operated by artisans of the global South and master-craftsmen from developed countries. Without boarding an airplane, consumers are able to purchase authentic hand-crafted products while still contributing to the economic and cultural sustainability of regions they love.

Every Product has a story

Like jewellery made from bombshell casings by the Rajana Association in Cambodia — turning weapons of war into symbols of peace. 

Artisan's create their own success stories

Culture Dock is an expansive platform, for socially conscious consumers, potentially hosting hundreds of thousands of artisans vetted by leading international organisations in fair trade and heritage crafts. We put artisans, their livelihood and cultural heritage at the heart of a retail platform that bends to the needs of traditional artisans.
