is to use | luxury for GOOD®
"My vision is of an ethically unified, transparent and more socially responsible luxury consumer goods industry. Succeeding in this would represent the (new) luxury we want to contribute towards."
Martin Johnston, Founder, Crafted Society
Crafted Society was born out of a passion to create exquisite handcrafted products with the most talented artisans of Italy and use the products as a vehicle for positive social impact while simultaneously helping to preserve authentic and traditional craftsmanship. To preserve the crafts the artisans must transfer their knowledge to the next generation but this is an increasingly difficult task, mainly due to the 'secrecy' which has surrounded these talented humans for decades. We decided it was time to challenge convention, we decided it was time for transparency to triumph over secrecy. Traditional luxury needs a re-brand and a set of new values.
