YEREVAN – TUMO Studios is pleased to announce the launch of its online shop of over seventy items designed and made in Armenia at https://www.tumostudios.am/.
TUMO Studios is a free of charge, nonprofit educational program for university age students and young professionals. The program focuses on the creation of analog products — beautiful things you can touch, wear, taste and smell. It aims to cultivate a new generation of designers and craftspeople who raise the quality of locally produced goods and make them competitive globally.
TUMO Studios connects local students and young professionals with international designers through ateliers (educational workshops), where they combine traditional know-how and contemporary design to create innovative products in fashion, jewelry, embroidery, pottery, printing, product design and the culinary arts.
A purchase from TUMO Studios is a contribution to the future of Armenian design and craftsmanship. With all proceeds from the online shop going towards running and expanding the program, patrons help pave the way for more students to develop design skills and explore their creative potential.
