There’s nothing more exciting than finding a unique piece of art or decor while traveling—plus, (responsibly) incorporating treasures from the world is a great way to achieve a unique interior. While we’re still pining for the days when we can travel freely, House Beautiful Style Director Robert Rufino has pulled together a list of beautifully crafted products from all over the world. Each textile, cup, and basket is hand-crafted, often using techniques native to its respective country. And, thanks to the internet, you can shop these treasures right from the comfort of your home. Follow along for a virtual grand tour, and get your carts ready—no passport required.

This plate is handcrafted in Limoges, a French city known for its porcelain craftsmanship. The vibrant, graphic pattern will add a punch to your tabletop.

A striking pattern portrays the native eucalyptus foliage and landscape from Australia, where this tray was crafted. It will be an inviting and stylish item when offering goodies to your guests.
Tierra Upcycled Blanket – Nube
This blue and white colorway is inspired by Nube, the Spanish word for cloud. Handwoven in Mexico using upcycled yarn, this blanket will be perfect to cozy up to by a summer campfire. It also comes with a handmade leather strap, so you can bring it with you wherever you’d like!
Camellia Kutani Mug
Based at the foot of the Kokuzoyama mountain in Japan, Kokuzou Kiln uses the traditional Kutani technique—a unique glazing method—to create ceramic goods with a modern twist. This handpainted mug is quite poetic in the freehand nature of its design.
Terracotta Vessel with Studs
These terracotta vessels are unique with their own history. This vase in particular comes from a hacienda, or a Spanish estate, in the region of Jalisco, Mexico.

This handwoven fan would be great for a summer day. It’s made out of ethically-sourced straws and handwoven in Ghana. Not only will it make a fantastic accent piece for your home, but the message will also brighten your day.

These handmade baskets from sweetgrass use a traditional coil-style weaving technique from Senegal and can take 40 hours to craft. They also use recycled materials to color the baskets. Perfect for any kind of storage, the colors of these baskets will lift the mood in any space!
Murrine Glass Tumblers – Set of 4
I love the bold drama of these glasses, which are handcrafted with a murrine technique. Second-generation Venetian glassware label Formentello specializes in this ancient process that creates colorful patterns in a glass cane revealed when cut in cross-sections.
Handmade Deep Red Boucherouite Rug
I love the richness of the color palette. Handcrafted by Berber women in Morocco utilizing a carpet weaving technique passed down from generations, this rug has “imperfections” are what gives it character. Boucherouite rugs are eco-friendly, too: They’re crafted with discarded clothes and textiles.
