SUTRA global

weaving a fabric of cultural understanding through travel and art

Sutra means thread!

Step into another world at SUTRA Global Imports, a space inspired by a love of handmade, with an appreciation for makers across the planet. At Sutra, you will learn the stories of artisans from India, Indonesia, Morocco and Nepal as you browse our curated collections and shop for good.

While our great love is textiles, both new and vintage, you will also find wood carving, metal and paper art, silver jewelry, and basketry.

A Pop Up Shop

Since 2018, SUTRA is open just 3 days each month (after our Grand Re-Opening in May) as “a time-limited, unique retail experience”. Being in a renovated barn, our season runs from May - October, with our pop up shops on the third weekend of each month, Friday through Sunday 10am - 5pm.

In a single watershed moment, the seeds for SUTRA were planted. Kim Hammer had loved textiles and travel since she was a teenager, but life drew her to a career in the healing arts for two decades. She went to India twice to study yoga with masters, and left knowing she would return someday, and not simply for yoga. When she returned after more than a decade, she toured SE Asia and India to learn about textiles and travel tours, and to meet artisans. She has lead more than 10 tours to India, Bali and Morocco, and spends on average 8 weeks each year in Asia and Africa. In 2019, she began to collaborate with other women to bring added depth to her tours.
