In each one of Melange's products, you can see their story: great design blended with artisan craftsmanship.
In small workshops around the globe, skilled artisans bring their whimsical designs to life. They have been working with the same artisan groups for many years and have developed long-term, committed partnerships that help promote sustainable income, environmental awareness and greater economic equality.
