Medina's Core Beliefs

Medina Mercantile offers high quality, well designed goods for your home and lifestyle.  We are committed to working with artisans around the world, and in the United States, to support artists and crafts people directly.  We look for products that are beautiful, primarily, and beautifully made, but we don't buy anything that is not made with the highest integrity-- our overseas suppliers work with women's collectives in Bangladesh, farmer artisan weavers in Morocco, and local artists close to our home in the Blue Ridge of Virginia.
