Uncommon Luxe was founded by Emilie Kay, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. It is an online boutique focused on promoting the production of traditional and contemporary functional art, and building a community of artisans, designers and collectors from around the world. The curated collection has an elevated culturally conscious aesthetic combined with refined craftsmanship. She personally sources the products and materials by master artisans and designers.
The arts help define a cultural identity. Unfortunately, due to social and economic factors, traditional art forms and crafts are disppearing around the world. Emilie believes it is incredibly important to keep them alive. Her hope is Uncommon Luxe will have a small part in doing so.
