Our artisans are Navajo beaders based in New Mexico. At Etkie, they have a platform to create contemporary designs using the artistic traditions passed down from generations.
How do the artisans work with ETKIE?
Our artisans are private contractors, meaning they’re their own bosses. This allows them to work as much or as little as they want depending depending on their lifestyle needs. For example, many of our artisans are mothers and appreciate the flexibility!
Why are your artisans private contractors?
As a small business, it works out better for our artisans to be private contractors rather than employees especially because they receive health insurance from IHS. We help them set up legal, invoicing and billing processes and they are always paid immediately after their work is complete. As they own their own small business, they are contributing to their Social Security for when they retire. Additionally, most of our artisans do not work full time.
What are the artists being paid?
Because of the price based exploitation typically seen in the artisan craft sector, we make sure our artisans are paid fairly. This means that our artisans set their own prices. We also have a bonus structure in place for artisans to make extra earnings.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS ETKIE?
We are headquartered in Albuquerque, NM (8-5 MT).
