Roots Studio’s mission is to bridge cultures and reverse cultural loss through future-positive solutions, adopted at scale. 

We work with community leaders to amplify voices, preserve endangered heritage creativity and facilitate economic sustainability through art.

For almost a decade, we have built long lasting relationships with indigenous artists globally and brought the extraordinary art of indigenous people from Asia, Africa and Latin America to Western designers, textile manufacturers and fashion companies. 

How We Work

Our team has worked with tribal communities with decades of experience spanning high design, grassroots organizing, and retail expertise. Twice a month, our team runs surface pattern, technological, and financial literacy workshops with our partner communities.

Sustainable Communities

Following UN SDG Goal 11 to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable, our vision is to support the local economies of heritage rich communities by using technology as a bridge. Our vision is to create an alternative to migration by supporting the sustainable lifestyles that exist in the community.

Profit Splits

Through each license, royalties wired back to village average 5 times the original selling price. Our profit split structure -- 75% to the artists and 25% to a community fund, which recognizes individual talent but also allows the village to participate as a whole and vote on spending for community needs.
