Located on a quiet street just around the corner from Piazza del Popolo, this small store embodies its name by offering an abundance of artisanal crafts from around the world.

Here, she displays them with pride and can tell you their story of origin, whether it is a wax-cloth shawl from West Africa, an ikat pillow from Istanbul or beauty product from the north of Italy.
