Our ambassadors are artisans who practice traditions that were first embraced generations ago — that’s hundreds to thousands of years ago! They earn a living with their hands. They take raw materials and make magnificent crafts. When Raisa departs on excursions

PLEASE NOTE: Our books are not intended to provide in-depth knowledge on the explorers, the destinations, the artisans, and the crafts. They’re designed to pique curiosity and start the conversation. The website is where we dive deeper. We can organize photos, videos, audio, and exhibits online. Packing less into a book saves paper. It also provides flexibility in that website resources can be updated at any time without forcing a new edition to be printed each time.
