We specialize in personalized, custom order, high quality handcrafted products made by women in rural, southern Romania. Because they receive reliable income and can work from home with Spero Designs, our artisans do not have to leave their children with relatives and move abroad to find work.
Thank you for supporting the artisans of Spero Designs!

Each item is handmade by a woman in Olt County, Romania.
With unemployment higher than 50% in this region, many families struggle to provide basic needs like food, shelter, and fuel, much less raise their standard of living. With limited resources and opportunities, it can seem quite hopeless. Florina had the idea to open an online shop to widen the opportunity for customers and provide women from the community a skill, needed income, and an added sense of dignity by providing for their families. Thus, Spero Designs Romania was born!
Thank you for being a part of supporting families and the economy of Draganesti-Olt, Romania.
