Business Partner about the first regional conference about Impact Investment
Founded back in 2000, Istoriali aims at supporting economic sustainability and promotion of the tangible and intangible cultural heritage sector.
"Istoriali" creates thematic decorative and gift products reflecting the history and cultural heritage of Georgia:
Istoriali collection unites about 200 items using metal (silver, brass, bronze), ceramics, and textile material. Gift products of Istoriali are based on museum collections and serve to popularize Georgian cultural heritage. Cast and hand-crafted products with 24-karat gold plating maintain stylistic similarities to historical originals while meeting the demand of the today’s market.
Actio investment will enable Istoriali to scale up its economic activities as well as social results. With the financial support of up to 50k Euros Istoriali will expand its workshop, employee more craftspeople, develop educational courses and masterclass services and create two new collections. As a result, Istoriali activities will contribute to preservation of the traditional metal sculpting profession, promotion of Georgian historical and cultural heritage, economic empowerment of traditional craftsman, and etc.
The financial support of Istoriali was made possible by the financial contribution of our partners - the European Union and impact investors. We would like to thank the European Union and the impact investors: microfinance organization MBC, Nikoloz Alavidze and Lado Sakvarelidze for creating this opportunity for Istoriali.
