Our Story

Verve Team Portrait

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

Women-Run, Women-Owned

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


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, home wares 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.

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.

As founders, Jules and Jacquie are a mother and daughter team and 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.

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

As the world moves towards mass production, artisan crafts die. Join us in sustaining artisan traditions for future generations.
