Makers gonna make

We have a few surprises coming your way for 2018. Our challenge for 2017 was combining our small batch signture items with larger household brands to create a personal thoughtful gift for you to give. For 2018 we are branching out to curate a collection of other fantastic small batch makers to pair up with. 

First up is Zoila Vera from Portland, Maine. Immediately, I was drawn in by her vintage labels and product line. Did I tell you I used to own a vintage inspired dress boutique featuring indie designers, all new labels - well that was another life, fortunately I found something I love to do just as much. Back to Zoila...her all natural products and masculine design are going to go great with our coming soon Men's Shave boxe line. A bit about Zoila from the founder: 

Soap and toiletries handcrafted in small batches, based on Victorian formulations. We believe the recipe perfected for centuries is where you'll find true gold. We honor our ancestors, the golden starlets of Hollywood, and the historic beauties we still hear about today by reformulating their favorite recipes to fit the needs of modern ladies and gentlemen.Every element is included with purpose and every product is chock-full of the highest quality ingredients available today. That’s the only twist! The rest has been passed down and refined for centuries.

Next is Southen Top Switch from Chattanooga, Tennessee. As soon as I saw that buffalo check, hearts in my eyes instantly. We'll be offering her Buffalo Check throw that you may or not have already seen in my instagram feed in my own home and at our Nordstrom Pop Up this month. We'll also be including a few other products in our home boxes. Here's a bit from the founder. 

I had been trying to find an excuse to hang out with my super hip and sweet Grandma. I really wanted to learn to make a quilt to use as my bedspread in my dorm at my new school, and my Grandma knew how to quilt, so I called her up! She taught me how to make my first quilt (which I still use every day), and a year after making the first quilt (during my junior year of college), I started to teach myself how to make new quilt projects. 

Last for now is Cinder Ceramics from Sacramento, California. She is just a few hours from our headquarters and her tea pottery caught my eye for our comfort boxes. We have a new tea company that we'll be announcing soon, I can't wait to pair up these little lovelies. A note from the founder.

It all began with a log. I began working with clay a few years ago, while I was doing lost wax casting for jewelry making. I wanted a big bronze fireplace log, but the cost was too prohibitive, and I decided I wanted it to be white. The medium that could make this happen was clay. That fireplace tealight log was the first thing I made, and I've never looked back.
This log is now featured as an exclusive as part of Anthropologie's winter line. 

It is a joy to challenge myself to create new things. I especially enjoy making things that have a functional purpose- with a twist. I love thinking of everyday items that I normally find kind of dull and trying to create a version that is fun and unique, like whimsical plunger holders, kitchen sponge holders, silverware trays, yoga mermaids, and more.
