Hi, I'm Janna, owner, designer, artist, curator and all the hats wearing woman of isiko!
After studying Anthropology in college I yearned to immerse myself in the lives of others, specifically indigenous
Imbued with the experiences from my childhood and my time in the Peace Corps I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of creating a platform that celebrates traditional handicrafts and art forms of all cultures around the world. For the world. That's why when I moved back to California I combined all of my passions into one and created what is now, isiko. I am beyond grateful to have a platform that gives back to under-served communities. All that so say: it wouldn't be possible without the people that I serve. You. So thank YOU for your unconditional support, enthusiasm, and love.
Each piece is handmade and sourced with love from my heart to yours.
isiko is a global marketplace that aims to support and empower artisans around the globe through the universal language of art. The products carried and curated by isiko connect humans across the world through the stories they tell in the use of fabric, in the patterns, the texture and in the design itself. Using traditional techniques and materials, our handmade products are not only beautifully unique, but also bring deserved recognition and provide jobs to underserved communities around the world.
At isiko, we not only want our heartfelt, handmade products to look good, we want them to do good.
As a social good company, every 6 months we identify a deserving organization and donate five percent of our proceeds to support their efforts. Every purchase you make at isiko helps give back to a community so desperately in need. By shopping with isiko, you are also doing your part in helping those underserved communities. Your support and participation means so much to me, I simply cannot thank you all enough.
Together, we can make this world a better place for all.
