Clover is a new shop online that features the work of makers from around the world. Run by a life-long traveler and longtime friend of the site, Clover seeks out handmade goods like pottery and pillows from far off places like Laos, the Philippines, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
Sam Petrie, the site’s founder, told me how the idea for the shop came to her during her travels..not surprisingly. We’re all sort of hyperaware of the people and cultures we interact while abroad, and when in places a bit harder up, there’s a natural desire to want to spread the wealth sort of speak. Clover aims to do just that by supporting artisans around the world.
