Archive  is a social enterprise with the goal of reinventing ancient trade--through sustainable products, direct from the source.
Ancient trade routes connected the world, through which goods brought stories and folklore along with them. Despite our world being far “smaller” today, we have lost a lot of what makes up true connection, especially in the products we eat, apply, and use.
reinventing ancient trade
For generations, ancient trade routes connected the world, through which goods brought stories and culture along with them. We’re recreating that rich experience that comes with products we eat, apply, and use—each formula has been community-developed and sustainably harvested, with thousands of years of tradition baked in
bottled at the source
A lot of what we consume has roots in nature, but almost always comes in formats that have gone through several middle men and artificial processing. Most farmers and harvesters of natural products don’t have the resources to achieve scale for a non-local audience—which is exactly where we come in. We physically go straight to the source, meet people, feel the terrain, and bring back ingredients in their raw form—which make up the products we create
rooted in impact
Put provocatively, Archive  is not a traditional business. We are testing out a new model where impact comes first. Purchasing directly from the source creates a sustainable economic loop, where financial investment goes to the people, families, and economies where it contributes to preserving our resources for generations to come
