How it Works
Maker & Company elegantly curates the best artisan made products from around the globe, creating an expertly curated shopping experience for you and a top-notch platform for otherwise hard to find products.
Maker & Company was founded in 2011 by Chris Crowley a lover of style and a believer in the the quality of artisan manufacturing. The original mission statement for the brand we keep dear to our hearts “We celebrate the Makers, the tailors and craftspeople” . After Chris’s passing all to early in the launch of the business, we have used his original vision, to support Makers as our path. With the Marketplace website format we are literally able to reach a wider audience of customers interested in fine things than any of the Makers could achieve on their own. We take great pride in continuing Chris’ original vision of supporting artisans of all types.
