In 2020, Great Caribou Studio is proud to become a member of the Économusée Network.
The Économusée movement is a hybrid between a business development organization and
experiential tourism destinations. An Économusée is a workshop and a boutique, as well as a centre for interpretation and documentation. On a trip to an Économusée, visitors will see artisans at work, access their knowledge and obtain their products without an intermediary. The Économusée mission is to preserve the best of tradition, to develop the entrepreneurial spirit of the artisan and to promote sustainable tourism. Visit Économusée members around the globe.
