Vision, inspiration and action are at the heart of VIA design. ‘Via’ means ‘the way through.’
Our vision is to empower people at the margins of society who have had few opportunities, via design. We develop partnerships with artisans and crafts producers in the majority world to nurture their creativity and potential, restoring dignity and hope.
Our products are inspired by rich design traditions, the understanding of market trends, and nature’s vibrant palette of colour, texture and pattern.
Through training and design assistance we enable our partners to produce exquisitely crafted products and to develop sustainable ethical businesses with access to local and international markets. We also support initiatives that bring hope and a brighter future to the communities where we work.
