What is an artisan? An artisan is a person or company that makes a high-quality, distinctive product in small quantities, usually by hand or using traditional methods. We have searched high and low across Missouri to bring you the best artisans making distinctive, high-quality gifts just in time for the holidays.
Missouri is fortunate to have an organization known as the Best of Missouri Hands. It is an organization dedicated to the development and recognition of Missouri’s artists and artisans. BOMH currently has approximately 400 members. Juried membership represents a diverse range of art forms and mediums, all of which exhibit the highest level of artistic quality and craftsmanship.
Our Market Place will feature BOMH artisans, as well as other artisans representing a cross section of Missouri culture. All artisans must apply for selection through a juried process. Once artisans have been approved we will begin featuring them on this web page beginning in July.
