With our 10 years celebrations coming to a close, we reminisce on ARTE’s humble beginnings.
The ARTE team is thankful for the continuous support from family, friends and followers, visitors and customers.
Looking forward to what the future holds for ARTE, we would like to reiterate our mission statement, the core of ARTE, who we are and what we stand for:
ARTE is a community destination. We bring such a variety of internationally diverse cultures and products from our artisans into the heart of your local community.
ARTE is a gathering of like-minded people, interested in creativity and originality; that are passionate about the concept of unique, artisanal products.
ARTE is a place of workshops, demonstrations and activity, where anyone can participate and try their turn at some of the handmade production with support from our knowledgeable artisans.
ARTE is a market where customers can buy unique hand made products not found in mainstream stores.
ARTE is a place where customers can talk to the producers— our vendors — directly, to learn about the process, concepts and passion inherent in every item, picture or product for sale.
ARTE is a regular, quality and longstanding event providing all year round opportunity for customers and visitors to browse and purchase hand-made gifts and consumables.
And the most important distinguishing element, which is the heart and soul of our conviction, is that ARTE upholds the principle of “Handmade in the UAE” and “We make What We Sell” , confirming ARTE truly as a Makers’ Market.
We look forward to the next year, and the next…
We hope you will join us in supporting your local community and your local artisans. The talent and skills of our artisans are growing by the month and ARTE is honoured to house so many different arts and crafts.
With the lead up to the Festive Season, the next few months will be a busy time at ARTE. Make sure you visit the next few markets to start all your gift shopping early”.
ARTE The Makers’ Market is this Friday, 25th September in Times Square Center, 12 – 7 pm.
