Meet the Business Owner: Edna L.

Owner, Edna Luer with her medical background began her career in export & while traveling as Director of International Sales in the corporate world of the computer industry & later exported medical & industrial instrumentation, started collecting ethnographic arts and artifacts. There, in a moment of serendipity began her collection of beautiful pieces through her exquisite taste, & keen natural eye for beauty and unique interesting objects.

Perfection is the key in making the product a success, so craftsmen with extraordinary skills & lifetime experience who are natives of the region are hired. Edna  personally designs most of the pieces. She ensures excellent finish & proper production by traveling through different regions of the country where the pieces are made. This enables her to give them accurate & precise directions in reinterpretation of classic forms & styles influenced from the east by early colonial days & ethnographic life of its region to modern use in the west.
