Mesteshukar ButiQ is a network of social economy enterprises and craftsmen aiming to revalue traditional Roma craftsmanship.
MBQ provides premium lifestyle products with a story and design that stands out in any context, using a blend of centuries old techniques combined with contemporary design.
We are planning to scale our sales processes abroad so that we can generate more revenue and increase our social impact.

Our initiative is dealing with the problem of unemployed Roma craftsmen by creating and selling contemporary products made using traditional techniques and thus creating jobs and bringing revenue in Roma communities.
