I am Diana Albrecht, the founder and designer of Apartment No.3. I am originally from Asuncion, Paraguay but moved to the U.S. to pursue my dream of being a professional ballet dancer. I recently graduated from Northeastern University with a Business Management degree and created this business as a way to continue learning about different cultures and art aiming to help make a positive impact in people's lives.
I am beyond grateful to my father, mother, brothers and my boyfriend for supporting me through all.
I have been dancing since I was 3 years old and art has always been part of my life. I deeply appreciate the purity of an artist' work. However, sometimes this work is not as exposed and celebrated as it should be. There are beautiful crafts and hardworking artisans around the globe, but their work might lack exposure, and economic and social difficulties might pose challenges to sell these goods in local markets and beyond.
Our goals are to foster the making and preservation of traditional crafts, encourage creativity and pride in artisans, provide market opportunities for communities in Paraguay and in other countries, so artisans can expose their beautiful crafts to the world, and obtain a more sustainable source of income.
