The desire to love and to be loved is the essence of humanity. It is the greatest of all virtues. Amante Marketplace is built on this foundation.
At an early age, Samantha Raftery developed a passion to serve people. God called her forward and made her aware of the universal human need to feel loved. In pursuit of this calling, Samantha launched Amante Marketplace.
Amante Marketplace is a lifestyle brand created to evoke purpose, passion, and love in all they do. Their hand-selected artisans are passionate about social causes, fair-trade, and ethical practices. Combined they inspire a different retail experience - one that makes people feel loved, valued, and seen.
They specialize in exceptional, hand-loomed textiles, throws, blankets, and baskets. Their exquisite hand-loomed Turkish towels and textiles are handwoven by artisans in Turkey using 100% eco-friendly Turkish cotton. Each elegant storage basket is expertly handwoven with native, sustainably sourced seagrass by artisans in Vietnam.
Amante Marketplace is a woman-owned company and pays all their artisan partners fair living wages.
