There are not many ethnic shops in Calgary that sell fair trade products, but this boutique is a veritable hunting ground for exquisite stuff. Culture Shop opened its doors in Art Central in March 2008, and has garnered clients from stylish centres such as Toronto and Montreal. Find everything from home accessories to clothing at Culture Shop.
From the Far East to the Southwest
Travel the world with the products from Culture Shop. They carry everything from home décor items, clothing lines from Paris and silver from Mexico. Find colourful Indian parasols, semi-precious healing stones and throw pillows that defy the rainbow colours. The stuff here is fair trade sourced, and comes from as far as India, Morocco, Turkey, Bolivia and Ecuador.
Home in Art Central
Culture Shop is warm like a home should be. A sofa by one corner beckons one to relax amidst a sea of throw pillows. Finding that perfect gift at this shop is going to be a hard decision to make with so many temptations around. Most of the one-of-a-kind products at this shop are handmade, too. They have a gift registry, as well.
