The Art Atlas Foundation

Mejorando Vidas, Improving Lives

For 15 years the Art Atlas Foundation woven itself throughout the region working to expand opportunities for women and to help them improve their lives. Anntarah has expanded its collection to include incredible hand craft items made by women in our training programs. Profits from these items go directly back to the women who made them. 

The Art Atlas Foundation is a non-profit association, created in 2003. Every year, a percentage of our sales is dedicated to the implementation of programs and activities in pursuit of a better quality of life for the communities that make out brand possible.
