May 27

There was a time when our communities were more connected. When a new pair of shoes meant a trip to the village cobbler, when trips down dusty roads led to road side stands and antique shops filled with endless treasures, when a child watched his father working late into the night in his workshop perfecting the craftsmanship of his creation.

It was before the hustle and bustle of daily life and shopping in superstores – where the more we look around, the more we see products that are out of touch, generic, and mass-produced with no face, no story, no meaning behind the product.

We knew we weren’t the only ones longing for leather that showed interesting imperfections, wooden bowls with natural edges, jewelry intentionally left with tool marks or any product that showed any sign of a soul or the mark of a proud maker.

IF YOU’RE HERE, YOU’RE LIKE US.

You crave authenticity and seek out beautiful, timeless, functional and well-designed goods. You’re searching for a place that provides a connection with the Maker – the artist, the designer, the craftsman, behind the products you love.

Makers Market is our gift to you. You’ll find products that honor the ideals of American Craftsmanship – where leather, metal, glass, clay, textiles and wood are transformed into timeless family treasures.

You’ll find makers who are second and third generation craftsmen; where rich tradition has been passed down through generations and made fresh and relevant today. You’ll find products that are sustainably made – either reclaimed, recycled, upcycled, or produced with ethically sourced materials.

We started our search in San Francisco, an epicenter of the modern American Maker Movement. We searched for the most skilled and interesting makers of beautiful, authentic, unique products.

They say the thrill is in the hunt, and we are here to attest that it’s true! From unmarked entrances in the Castro District to old industrial buildings in SoMa, from a ferry ride to Sausalito studios to the dozens of home studios our Makers graciously welcomed us into, our passionate search to find beautifully handcrafted American-made goods was fascinating and we loved every second.

We wanted to know everything about the makers and their products – where they seek inspiration, where they source materials, what their passions are – and more. You can read each of their stories on the Makers page and get to know them for yourself.

Thank you for supporting these talented makers and Makers Market!
