Meet The Artisans

Posted by Pitkern Islands Artisans on

Pitcairn Island’s artisans have been carving, weaving and fashioning curios and other souvenirs for generations. Many of the handmade crafts and curios available through our online store highlight the strong connection we have with our Bounty and Polynesian history. Choosing to name our store the “Pitkern Island Artisan Gallery” signifies the importance we place on preserving and promoting our unique local dialect and cultural identity. Thanks for getting to know us.
