At A Priori we bring together the finest local and US-made goods, as well as selected items from around the world. Our goal is to have the most planet-friendly and well-designed inventory available and always keep it fresh and interesting.
A Priori is proud to share the City of Berkeley's commitment to the global fair trade movement by actively seeking out artisans and producers who embrace these principles and practices. We are fortunate to have found many wonderful handmade items that are produced in safe and healthy work environments by people who are fairly compensated and treated with dignity and respect.
We believe that positive change can come from incremental improvements in the materials used and processes employed in the development of consumer products. We seek out innovative items that utilize recycled/re-purposed, organic, and renewable resources while maintaining great contemporary design.
