A handmade brand, Sobremesa supports fair trade, environmental sustainability, and conscious consumerism. The word ‘sobremesa’ literally means ‘over the table,’ and our name is inspired by the Spaniards’ tradition of lingering around the table to savor the conversation and company of others after a meal.
Our handmade products are crafted by skilled artisans around the world. We celebrate the traditional methods used to create their goods. Each product is designed to empower the artisans, strengthen their community, and sustain the environment. The story we tell is unique to each product, from the revival of a glass blowing factory in Guatemala to a weaving cooperative whose name is inspired by the rhythm of their traditional foot looms.
Sobremesa, based in Chicago, embodies our organization’s mission to connect people and planet. By sharing the story of our products and the artisans who make them, we invite each consumer to become aware of their impact on the global community.
Sobremesa invites you to share our story whenever family and friends are gathered around the table.
