Experience Culture - An Artisan View

We are committed to offering an inside view of how certain tools and tastes can create memorable experiences with friends and family.


We are a brand based on life's passions: cooking, entertaining, travel and, those cherished moments, and lasting memories with family, friends. 


Beautiful, purposeful, authentic and respectful of the people who make the items, is at the heart of our philosophy carried out in our everyday mission and vision of Verve Culture. 

We work with artisan partners around the world to bring products that uphold the culture and tradition of where it was made. Everything in our range is made in the country of origin, nothing is mass-produced. Our unique, giftable home wares and gourmet food products come with recipes and the story of how it's made, the artisan who made it, and the history of the item. We believe that exposure to new cultures and experiences brings joy.

We curate iconic items that are made in the country of origin using traditional practices.  We work with a team of amazing artisans and craftsmen who have been partners with us for our entire journey. We are proud to share their stories of heritage and passion and provide a platform to grow their businesses.

Founders, Jules and Jacquie - a mother-daughter-duo – have worked together for 27 years in the gift industry. After becoming disillusioned with the mass-produced products prevalent in the marketplace, we started to seek products that were more unique and have actual heart and soul.


"Today's consumers want to spend their hard-earned dollars on experiences and purposeful products that bring friends and family together. The experience, the memory attached."

– Jacquie Lewis, Jules Vertrees, and Sarah Laping Garland.
