About the Collective
Desert Sage Collective is a hub for artisans from Nevada and the surrounding region. We focus on textile goods that are made in the region, from natural materials, and inspired by the high desert. We value creativity, economic and environmental sustainability, transparency, collaboration, and connection. It is our hope that this collective amplifies those values in our community.
Our items are timeless in color, design, and practicality. They get better each time you use them - much like the heirlooms of past generations, whether it’s a cotton kitchen towel that can only be that soft from years of use and washing, or a grandparent’s vintage wool sweater. As they wear and fade, they capture stories of lives lived and memories made.
The cost of our products reflects the use of regional labor and regional materials. Each purchase supports a real artisan in our region and helps build a regional fiber economy in the US West. Our website features artist biographies from our makers and producers so you know who, how, and where your item was made.
For well-established artisans, this collective provides another marketplace for their goods. For smaller-scale artisans, this collective takes on the work of marketing, selling, and more - allowing them to focus on their craft and creativity.
