January's Featured Producer Partner | Koghb Art School & Yereknuk Handicrafts

The talented artisans from Yereqnuk Handicrafts in Koghb truly deserve special recognition, not only because they work hard to hand paint HDIF's super popular Armenian letters, but also because they produce many other high quality products.  These items adorn the shelves of HDIF's Homeland Fair Trade shop on Parpetsi Street in Yerevan.   

The founders of the school shy away from individual accolades because they strongly believe that their work is a collaborative effort.  Many local youths pursuing the arts have benefited from the skills and training learned at the Koghb Art School.  From the beginning, the founders' goal has been to give young people an opportunity to grow their talents in their hometown.
