Handcrafted, one-of-a-kind kites made with a bit of vintage goodness in the form of cotton, bamboo/wood, hemp and cotton string. We also make wide headbands made of handprinted batik fabric (because I couldn't find ANY quality made headbands on my own to keep my hair out of my face, so I made them when I found these gorgeous one-of-a-kind fabrics!).

Note that we have FLYING kites AND kites that are perfect for use as photo props, party decor or to uplift your studio/office space or a child's room/playroom (listed under our 'Non-Flying' category).

Both types of kites are unique gifts that can be brought out year after year to relive treasured memories.

The story of Uplift Artisan started with a dream. Literally.

Amazing vendor! Owner bent over backwards to make the item on a rush turn around and ship timely. And most importantly, the custom kite was gorgeous! Would recommend and use Michelle again in a heart beat!!

About

It all starts with a dream...

welcome to uplift artisan

I awoke on April 2009 ready to bust out of my skin. I had a dream where I was ‘told’ that I was going to start a business making handcrafted, heirloom kites and it would be called uplift artisan. (For the bigger doozy-of-a-story, go to www.upliftartisan.com).

I paid attention.

The photographs you see here and in my shop look exactly like those mystical, magical kites in my dream.

I call them dream beacons.

They are like so many simple things of beauty that uplift our lives in an instant: a field of sunflowers in bright bloom, multi-hued hot air balloons rising above us, a rainbow across a misty sky.

Happiness-inducing, bubbly-inside, hopeful moments. Simple celebrations.

Each uplift artisan kite is made by hand.

With care.

With love.

With joy.

So look up. To the sky, on your wall, or in your heart.

Remind yourself or someone you love that…

Dreams are real.

They can soar.

And so can you.
