Welcome to Adagio online, and thanks for visiting!
If you love beautiful things, you belong here. Well… that’s what our customers tell us.
Imagine the Silk Road. Extend it throughout Africa, then set sail for the Americas and Japan. This is basically what we’ve done through trade or our own travels. For nearly 30 years we’ve been careful to gather what we feel is the best quality and representation available from the artistic hands of people from many cultures… including our own. We’ve met wonderful people, and seen many beautiful things. We’re here to share them with you.
We have only three criteria for what we select: 1. It must be fair trade, 2. It must be earth-friendly (no synthetics, resins, or plastics here), and 3. It must be loved.
Adagio is meant for the senses. We don’t sell online. And as our name is a musical tempo marking, our shop is meant to be explored ... slowly, leisurely and gracefully.
