Our Story

Verve Team Portrait

Verve Culture brings you on a cultural journey through our artisan made products.

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. Beautiful, purposeful, authentic and respectful of the people who make the items, is at the heart of our philosophy. Each of our kitchen, homeware and gourmet food products comes with the story of where it is made, by whom, and the history of the item.  We believe that exposure to new cultures and experiences brings joy.

Verve Culture's concept is about Culture Exploration and is not product specific. 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 from around the world that are proud to share their stories of heritage and passion. 

As founders, Jules and Jacquie are a mother and daughter team and have worked together for 25 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.

Women-Run, Women-Owned

Today, we are a women-run business spanning three generations from Baby Boomer, Gen X, to Millennial. We are in constant pursuit of life travelled fully. The more we explore, the more we get inspired. Join us on our journey.  

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

Our vision is to explore the cultural richness of artisans and communities around the world – to educate and inspire, while honoring the traditions and heritage of their work. People Matter.
