I've read several books on e-commerce over the past year, knowing I wanted to start my own online business, but not knowing exactly how or in what way. In doing this, I was silently preparing for the future, for an idea I knew would come to me. And finally, one day in early April of last year, it did. I began to think about my love for travel, textiles, worldly products and bohemian goods. I've always loved other cultures, almost more than my own. Clinging onto their colorful traditions and authentic nature, their love for family, food and creating art. There is so much beauty in the lives of other people that live far away.
I created Arden Trading Co. (ATC) with the hopes of reaching those far off places and making them feel closer. In launching this company, I hope to bring together and celebrate a vast community of artisans. Celebrating an artisan's craft is beautiful and noteworthy, but telling their story is almost more important. The stories behind the craft are what connects us as humans, and knowing where our goods come from make them all the more special to us. I truly love the thought of supporting artisans from all over the world, so I designed a company that features one-of-a-kind, handcrafted goods, that are rare and beautiful. I hope the items we feature bring a sense of warmth to your soul, home and wardrobe, and make your world feel a bit more colorful.
Look to us for textiles, home goods, jewelry and other bohemian gifts and accessories.
After 11 months of hard work, Arden Trading Co. is ready to launch and I couldn't be more excited! I hope you enjoy our carefully curated goods and stories.
Brought to you with love ✨ Arden Trading Co.
P.S. spread the news to your friends and family who share a love for boho goods!
