Get to Know Doti Sutra
Hundreds of years ago, treasures from faraway lands captivated citizens. Foreign goods were few and far between, brought to local markets by world travelers. They weren’t your everyday foods, clothing, and decor that you could find just anywhere, and therefore were perceived as unique, valuable, and even magical. They reflect the lands they came from, helping to share and spread culture around the world. Today, of course, foreign trade has taken over and we can now find goods made in other countries just about anywhere.
But Doti Sutra knows it’s just not the same, which is why we’ve gone back to our roots of unique shopping experiences with artisan-made goods.
We have an eye for the beautiful and distinctive, which is why we hand-select all of our items from faraway places like Turkey, India, Nepal, and Indonesia — places that still value art and craftsmanship and the little differences that make a product truly one of a kind. All of our products are made by hand from artisans who have spent their lives perfecting their crafts. That’s why there’s usually only one or two of each item in our shop — because mass production doesn’t have a place here.
We select products directly from artists and local shops and have personal connections with each artist. We have met many interesting and talented people on our world travels and strive to share their craft with our customers.
From original shawls and jewellry to natural incense and calabash, we make it easy to find gifts that mean something a little extra. Shop our online store, or catch us at one of our in-person events, markets, or festivals. We look forward to sharing a unique side of the world with you!
