Celebrating Craftsmanship


Every piece of craft weaves a story. Some stories span centuries, filled with history and culture. Others represent a new lease in life away from the past.

Earth Heir began with an appreciation for craftspeople. These artists spend a lifetime honing and perfecting their skills to create their finest art pieces. We are dedicated to the preservation of heritage art forms.

We work hand-in-hand with master artisans, the underprivileged and disadvantaged persons to create a collection of exquisitely handcrafted pieces from around the world.

I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do something I can do.” – Helen Keller

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” – John Wesley

For Earth Heir’s logo, we drew from our Founder, Sasibai Kimis’ experience in Ghana. This Adinkra symbol represents aphorisms and is depicted in many aspects of Ghanaian culture. The “Nyame Nti” symbol means ‘by God’s grace’ and represents faith and trust in God.
