Lucia Pearl Jewelry blends fashion with contemporary design plus a bit of engineering to offer unique jewelry pieces that are smart, elegant, versatile, and completely handmade.
The debut collection, aptly titled "Pipe Dreams" is a direct reflection of the designer's urban surroundings- inspired by sparkling skylines, subway tunnels, and street style, Pipe Dreams is all about having high hopes for the big city.
Lucia's latest project "Maalem + Maalema" (Arabic for "master + master") is a collaboration with Moroccan master engraver, Mohammed Benjebara. The two met during an artist residency in Fes, Morocco, and have been collaborating on jewelry pieces ever since.
Inspired by base materials, we design and produce objects of need and want not limited by subject. At the beginning is a material, with its unique properties and behavior to be studied and to be inspired by in. For this reason, we categorize our products by base material categories without limits on the subject. “La materia prima”, the base material often referenced in Italian cooking, is essential to the success and quality of any notable meal. Just like a good chef would hand pick his ingredients, we choose the highest quality materials and true experts available to materialize our ideas. Food is essential to life, so is beauty... and the need to create.
I met Hermes for the first time for lunch in Milan. He was obsessing over a reproduction of a stone tube with a brass and felt top, used by an old electrical company for their vintage internal airmail system. Immersion in arts and design was my personal trajectory and the story of my family for generations. Shared passion for unique and well made started our project “with material”- Conmateria.
Main Collection: Limogerie Porcelain
Each piece is designed and hand built in our studio in Brooklyn by Petra Langerova, second generation porcelain maker and fashion designer.
Our plates are thin and delicate yet strong, utilizing the properties of pure porcelain. Our customers use them as serving plates, as well as trinket and valuables keepers.
I make pottery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I first encountered a potter's wheel when I was little, 9 or 10 years old, and after that wheel throwing was all I wanted to do. My early fascination with pottery was rooted in an interest in ancient civilizations and archaeology: how remarkable, I thought, that I can make something that could be around for centuries!
I've since studied Greek antiquity, worked on an archaeological dig, and have seen enough ancient pottery to fill a Trojan Horse. Yet I still marvel at the power of these objects: the old pots which were used for ages and passed down through generations and the brand new ones which are just starting out on what will hopefully be a long journey.
For now, I make functional, wheel-thrown pieces with distinctive clean lines, and I am inspired by the spare, rough beauty of the coast of Greece, where I lived for several years.
Beau Brummell for Men is a men's skincare & grooming company started in NYC. It all started out as an idea in early 2013. The company was founded by two brothers, Zack and Daniel, entrepreneurs with a lifelong dream of working in the men’s health and wellness industry. Beau Brummell skin care products are crafted in small batches at our laboratory in New York to ensure the highest quality and consistency in each product we create. Our promise at Beau Brummell is to provide our customers with expertly formulated products that are made precisely for the modern male. We pride ourselves on having the right products, the right formulas, and the right fragrances, all with one idea in mind – So you can stay handsome.
We named our company after George Bryan Brummell, better known as Beau Brummell, one of England’s most refined gentlemen in the 18th century. While born to a middleclass London family, Beau Brummell became a true testament that elegance is a product of style and personality, as opposed to class and money. His ambition was to revolutionize men’s fashion of the day, he is now credited with inventing the modern men’s suit worn with a necktie. As a result, Beau simplified the custom of men wearing large, ornate clothing and ushered in the era of men wearing finely tailored fitted garments. Hence, this new age of men’s fashion became known as “dandyism”. So fastforward to the twentyfirst century and Brummell’s contributions to men’s style and modern elegance is still as relevant now as they were back then.
In the spirit of Beau, Beau Brummell for Men is committed to improving the lives of men everywhere. It is our belief that with enough care and attention to detail, every man can look like a gentleman because every man deserves to feel classy. All it takes is a simple skin care routine with quality products, to look better and, yes – feel better, too.
Kate Taylor Design is a line of contemporary metal jewelry made by hand (by me, Kate!) here in NYC. I strive for an 'organic geometric' aesthetic, strongly influenced by primitive art & textile design, so I fabricate and carve all of my models by hand without the use of computer or laser cutting.
My father is an architect so I grew up around tools and construction sites all my life, forever obsessed with building and making beautiful things from seemingly cold materials like stone and metal. I love talking to my customers about as much of my process as they want to know about transparency is very important to me. I take immense care and pride in making jewelry for designloving women who put a lot of thought into their wardrobe staples, and who care about sustainable/slow fashion.
When I make jewelry, I feel connected to a tradition that goes back thousands of years. When you wear my pieces, I want you to feel that connection too. I visit museums frequently for inspiration, drawing heavily from the geometry of ancient/tribal jewelry, ceramics & textiles. I love geometry that has a warm, human feel, so I cut and carve all my original models by hand, without the aid of laser-cutting or computer. I believe jewelry should be comfortable but also substantial, subtly reminding you of its presence and giving you confidence throughout the day. My jewelry is for modern adventurers, dreamers, and doers of all kinds.
All of the pieces featured on this site are designed and made by me in my New York studio.
I love working with primal elements of metal and fire to create something so precious and small in scale. My current collection is minimalist and lightweight, made by me from start to finish from sterling silver, oxidized silver and 14k gold. I strive to create elegant designs that are easy to wear yet make a subtle statement.

I started my ceramic journey almost 2 years ago out of Brooklyn, NY. I have been making art in many different forms since childhood. Today I am mostly drawn to clay and fibers. In my ceramic work, I am focused on hand building, texture, and pattern. Each piece is a blank canvas and I am not finished until I sit and meticulously decorate each one. I am working on building my ceramics brand and I am branching out into the custom and wholesale markets. I am the mom to an 8-year-old daughter who I love sitting and getting involved in craft projects with. I am always making something.
My hashtag motto is #nevernotcrafting.

We founded Casavva with the vision of creating high-quality staple products at the foundation of every wardrobe.
We started by reimagining the casual button-down shirt for men-an essential piece in many an outfit. At Casavva, flannel shirts aren't just for chopping wood. They are also for going to the office, nights on the town, and lazy brunches. We take the casual comfort of premium flannel and give it a touch of modern class. We top it off with innovative designs and hidden features. It all gets done right here in USA with fabrics sourced from Los Angeles and the final product made in New York City.
In February of 2015, we kicked off our men's line with a successful Kickstarter campaign. Since then we've been adding new items to the collection and bettering our designs. We're a young, bootstrapped company, and we welcome your ideas and feedback anytime.

We are Brooklynbased clothing brand for babies ages 0 – 2 4 months. Each outfit is created using bits of cloth from articles of clothing no longer in use and reimagined into an entirely new piece that mirrors the design simplicity and practicality of a traditional Kimono and is inspired by the Japanese textile Boro. Using what we already have and giving it a second life is what moves the Kiboro spirit.
There is something magical in mixing different textures, different shapes, and different stories to create a piece that is one of a kind.
I began designing, should I say collaging robots, whilst staying home and caring for my daughters.
It was a pastime that I could start and stop in between diapers and bottles. Strolling the girls about Greenpoint I would snap pictures of machine parts, old cars, hydrants, headlights, street signs, an interested texture anything and everything mechanical, metal or textile. I'd upload the images to my computer and once there went to work chopping, cropping and collaging into the robot portraits I now share with everyone. It was a very personal, somewhat odd hobby I never thought would appeal to all that many people. Turns out I was very wrong on that point. I'm still a stay home dad, but now, on the weekends I head to markets and share my robot collages with the city.
Mireya Acierto is a freelance photographer originally from Chicago but currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. She began taking photos as a teenager, when she saw how much fun her friends enjoyed being photographed. After college, she started working with small publications in Chicago and then finally moved to New York to challenge the idea of being a "real" photographer.
Over the past 5 years, Mireya has been working in the entertainment industry where her work has been published in various magazines, newspapers, and digital outlets. However, Mireya Acierto's real passion is traveling to various parts of the world while taking photos, something she tries to do as frequently as possible. From her photos, you can see how much she enjoys capturing color, design, texture, and people. No matter how many times Mireya returns to the same place, there is always something beautiful to capture and for her, it's always a new experience.
In 2013 I decided to turn my passion for jewelry making into a fulltime business. I established Lockhart Wrks and started selling my first collection at the Brooklyn Flea and other venues around the city.
My designs are a composite of my observations and experiences; the world I see and feel around me - from Incan to industrial architecture, arch bridges, art deco motifs, and weathered colonial facades. I like old things, as age conveys a sense of character and quality that withstands the test of time, like a rich patina on metal or wood. I am equally inspired by the natural world. Spending time in nature opens up space for creative contemplation and an often needed recharge. Design concepts tend to surface during a quiet walk in the woods. There is a rustic quality present in my work that comes from my love of the outdoors.
The dualities of urban and rural life are reflected throughout the line by juxtaposing materials: old and new, hard and soft, dark and light, metallic and organic.With an experimental and sometimes unconventional approach to processes, I strive to produce pieces with a dynamic expressiveness, as original and distinct as the wearers themselves. My work has evolved through my experience as a selftaught artist, along with training in silversmithing and wax carving.
Luca Chiara is a New York City and Hudson Valley based company specializing in fine accessories for men and women. Our Italian inspired,
American designed products are made of proven durable
materials such as water resistance nylon, cotton canvas, water repellent acrylic coated rip stop and soft grained vegan leather.
We craft all of our products with great pride and ingenuity. Most credit cards, ATM cards and passports have digitally coded computer chips that contain sensitive information that can be unknowingly stolen from a distance. That said, our wallets and passport cases offer RFID blocking from identity thief, unauthorized credit card use and other cyber banking crimes. These products are soft, flexible and thin despite being literally lined with steel.
As an environmentally conscious company, we only use soft grained
vegan leather. Oftentimes, real leather uses a tremendous amount of dyes, chemicals and tints to get shades even. These treatments are extremely polluting and harsh on the planet. Our products are designed to be fashionable and functional for the hectic lifestyle of the 21century
but are based on 19 century old world quality.
The owner's great grandfather and great great grandfather, Luca and Donato Chiara, began their business in 1902 when they opened a small shoe store in Italy. Many years later after coming to the United States, they continued their craft in the New York area.
Fast forward 100 years to the current owner and grandson of Luca Chiara. After having worked for over 25 years with several big name brands like; Kenneth Cole, Ben Sherman and Bloomingdale's, he decided to translate his experience in the accessory industry and continue the family tradition by launching the brand to honor his ancestors.
I have been living and working in Brooklyn for some 30 years surrounded by a creative environment. Over the years I have made functional ceramics and branched out into wall art.
I have begun making works inspired by my surroundings and memories. Using images from old family photographs, movie and television images, and my own collection of photographs, and ones that I have admired that other people have taken, I translate them to my ceramic tiles and functional work. Using my knowledge of ceramic firing and application of glazes I have embarked on making this exciting wall art. Using my slip-cast box tile form or commercial tiles to recreate these images in clay and glaze I have opened up a new avenue for my creative exploration.
Challenging myself to create larger and larger wall pieces has been part of the process. I design my work in my Brooklyn studio, which involves much planning and research. Learning new ways to translate and interpret the images that interest me has been an exciting adventure. I hope that you will enjoy what I have produced so far.
I have now begun bringing the new techniques that I have been working on with the wall art back into my functional ceramics. This has been rewarding in opening up new possibilities.
I started making pillows because I was trying to decorate and couldn't find anything that fit my style... I'm would say I'm mostly inspired by textures and fabrics but one of my pillows is inspired by one of my favorite mugs :)
Owner + Designer + Maker
Amanda ‘Mana’ Paulsen is the owner, designer, and maker behind Mana Made Jewelry. Combining her love for art, fashion, and all things vintage, Mana started designing beaded and stone jewelry under a mentor and friend in San Diego, CA nearly a decade ago. A native East End Long Islander, she brought her jewelry practice back to New York and learned metal fabrication techniques at a local metal studio, which are currently being incorporated into her designs.
Mana Made Jewelry reflects and combines Mana's love of finding unique vintage beads, stones, and materials with metal techniques. Jewelry pieces are ever evolving to incorporate new materials and different fabrication techniques.
From a lover of the sea and all things art + vintage + jewelry + fashion to a jewelry designer…Mana Made Jewelry is an amalgamation of the things that I love, which are emulated in each design. The jewelry I create incorporates materials I find doing the things that I enjoy – from sea stones that catch my eye while hanging out on the beach to unique one-of-a-kind beads collected during a vintage shopping adventure.
Each piece of jewelry is an original design and handmade from locally sourced materials in NY. Chains, stones, and beads from local vintage purveyors are mixed with new and modern materials to give jewelry designs a classic and one-of-a-kind look.
Bead & stone pieces are designed and produced in Mana's home studios based in Brooklyn and Hampton Bays. Metalwork is fabricated at a local metalsmithing studio in Brooklyn.
Mana Made Jewelry is handcrafted, one-of-a-kind, and inspired by the environment – both man-made and natural. This has influenced each of the current collections 'City', 'Sea',' and 'Sones'.
Pieces in the City collection are made in Brooklyn using a mix of vintage and locally sourced metals, stones, and beads.
The Sea collection is inspired by /incorporates natural elements found along the beautiful shorelines of the East Coast.

Nestled within the borders of the small village of Bronxville, NY, AVM casa was founded to provide quality, handmade soy candles to those looking to enliven their space with the ambient glow of candlelight while being mindful of the environment and their budgets.
Our purveyor, Andrea, a native Brazilian and one-time resident of New Jersey, became enamored with candle making while producing small runs for family and friends during the 10 years since she has made Westchester County her home. She couldn’t resist the allure and joy the process brought her and thus, AVM casa was born. She is passionate about the process, but what brings her the greatest joy is knowing that her clients are enjoying something she made with care and close attention to details. Bringing 20 years of operational experience in the luxury retail fashion industry, she has molded AVM casa utilizing the same care and attention the large design houses show in producing the most luxurious and high-quality product for their customers.
AVM casa uses pure fragrance and essential oils in our candles and a quality 100% soy wax that melts smoothly for hours of scented heaven. Our wicks are self-trimming and 100% cotton, free of lead and paper cores.

I am a multimedia artist and designer based in Brooklyn, New York. My work, an eclectic mix of the traditional and modern, employs hand made and digital techniques to create collectible small editions on paper and fabric. Heavily influenced by an interest in environmental issues my work aims to blur the lines between Art and Design.
My work tracks the theme of actions and consequences. It is about ownership and migration and how these concepts affect our environments. I explore how behavior can have a powerful social and environmental impact. The audience is encouraged to physically engage with the work, stimulating reflection and dialogue.
Discarded pieces of garbage are repeatedly reproduced throughout my work, a reminder of their permanence in our landscape and a testimony to their futility. I ”package” them in decorative ways, shifting the context in which they are viewed. They become hidden in plain sight.
My materials are not just found objects. They are the enigmatic fragments of everyday life. Forensic puzzles so quotidian, we no longer see them.
I take them home, wash them, lay them out and begin to “paint”. The compositions which result are my form of mark-making. The objects themselves become my marks, my motifs. Sometimes the work has a playful, narrative. At other times they are abstract meditations on color or composition. I reproduce and repackage, make multiples and transform the impersonal and mechanized into something which is individual and handcrafted.
This creates a hybrid of technology and handcrafts. Needlepoint, a familiar, fussy, feminine pass-time with a long tradition, fuses with technology, a new way of seeing our realities. Exploring the cushion requires participation. You must use your phone to interact. The screen that usually distractions us, here, leads us to consider ideas we may not want to think about. I slip these objects back into your environment. The motifs migrate to tables, sofas and living rooms. They are upholstered on chairs, adorn tablecloths or are hidden in the folds of a silk scarf. They are locked within a needlepoint QR code cushion for the curious to scan and rediscover.

Brooklynbased candle company Keap blends escapist fragrances, developed by master perfumer Christophe Laudamiel, with a pioneering approach to sustainable materials.
The secret to a perfect scented candle is a simple set of materials: wax, fragrance, a wick, and a container.
Having burned many candles as roommates—on Keap Street in Brooklyn—we decided to investigate why things were the way they were. What started as a pet project, turned into something more. We Googled things, took perfumery courses, began making candles in our kitchens, and toured candle manufacturers. We discovered an archaic industry with massive incentives to use cheap, unsustainable materials (like paraffin); one that hid truths behind opaque branding.
So we started Keap to make candles better: a return to a purer product made with the best materials available at a fair price—nothing more, nothing less.
Founded as a benefit corporation, each of its candles supports the distribution of solar lamps to communities in need through its Buy a Candle, Light a Home program.
Kate Kook and WooJae Chung founded their company around creating handcrafted, small-batch kimchi while also encouraging a healthier way of life. Kimchi Kooks inspires old world traditions and contemporary expressions of the long-heralded “super food” of Korea.

Kimchi brings together these three aspects of her life: creating great tasting healthy food, making art, and pursuing her own entrepreneurial endeavors.
Inspired by her experience of living in New York City since 1999, Kate created many small batch recipes using local, seasonal ingredients. Out of these experiments comes the Kimchi’d™ line, a contemporary take on a timeless tradition.
Kimchi Kooks is sold at Whole Foods Market, among many other grocery stores in the TriState area, and offers a freshly made seasonal menu at Down to Earth Farmer's Market.

Seek is introducing insects to the American diet via ultra delicious and nutritious snacks with the star ingredient, the proteinrich cricket. At Seek, we like the celebrate the beauty and bounty that comes from the natural world. Seek’s food fuels you, while protecting our planet’s resources.
Seek was created as a solution. Co-founder Robyn Shapiro always had a close connection to food; her first entry into the business was at the ripe age of 15 when she froze fruit in the middle of the hot Summer and corralled her friends to join her to sell it in Boston's Harvard Square. However, it was over a decade later when Robyn was living in Switzerland that her strong desire to bring new solutions to the food world was born. Across the European countries that Robyn frequented, she saw a strong tradition and culture attached to what and how people were eating. The craft, quality, and care she witnessed left a lasting impact and she wanted to use that approach to address food issues in the US.

My name is Lourdes, also known as Titiluli. I worked as an architect until I became a mother. Having the need to be creative, I took lessons in screen printing and I was hooked! Loving all things handmade and with the desire to be part of a community which shares, appreciates and understands the satisfaction of creating something with one’s own hands.
I love the whole process which begins with an original design that reflects my love for bright colors and simple shapes. I find it rewarding to take an idea to its simplest form without losing its character.
Each design is hand drawn onto a transparency that is burned onto a silk screen on an exposure unit built by my very handy husband. Then my favorite part begins. I play some fun tunes and start printing to the rhythm. It is art therapy! I use the best quality eco-friendly water based inks on natural fiber fabrics.
The results are lovely tea towels, napkins, pillows, kids wear and art prints to name a few... that simply makes you smile.
EFFORTLESS, INDIVIDUAL STYLE THAT HELPS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST PARKINSON'S DISEASE.
SARA HARARI-BUCHNEA, CREATOR OF SQUAR'D AWAY.
Originally from Canada, Sara has been a part of the art world for more than ten years. Using her eye for aesthetics, she began Squar'd Away to create simple objects that make people happy whenever they look at them or hold them in their hands.
With its ability to soften a look or give it an edge, and countless ways it can be styled, reinterpreting the classic bandana became an endless source of fascination for Sara and the focus of Squar'd Away's first collection.
Squar'd Away will donate 20% of the proceeds of the sale of each square (that is a lot, most companies start at 5-10%) to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
ceramicism features the work of Brooklyn-based ceramicist, Dustin Barzell.
All my work is handmade, one at a time. Each piece is unique and made with love.
I am a textile designer and started making soaps. I use mostly organic and all natural ingredients. The soaps are great quality use only essential oils for fragrance. Each scent is inspired by a person. My best seller is my son's scent, clove lavender, my husband is vetiver, my niece is ginger, my mom is neroli, and I have other scents like lemon, jasmine, ylang and a gentle soap. All are olive oil based and have other great oils like coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, palm oil, and almond oil.

Meaning “star in the hand,” Izaskun was always destined to create jewelry. Her eye for spatial composition was nurtured in the Basque Country where she grew up with parents who socialized with artists and often brought her along to museum openings, studios and performances.
She eventually moved to New York, where she achieved Summa Cum Laude in the Jewelry Design Degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology, was awarded the Elsa Peretti/Tiffany scholarship for excellence, and later earned a Business Degree and Creative Enterprise Ownership Diploma.
Working with nOir, Izaskun designed trendsetting jewelry collections distributed worldwide whilst creating customized runway pieces for Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. and other performers, such as Rihanna. Her knowledge in fine jewelry translated to her work with Stella & Dot, and later to her own brand, where she now designs insightful collections inspired by the world around her - the natural forces with which we live, the subtle influences of the cosmos and the unique creations of the universe.
Burning Both Ends are custom-made handcrafted sculptures, which you can light if desired. The sculptures are made in New York and have titles based on their colors. The colors and the wax are mixed only for one sculpture at the time. Each sculpture is entirely unique.
Never the same - Always different.
I run JamJamsJam, a small shop that sells fun & quirky baby clothing and accessories that are perfect for gift giving. I started JamJamsJam after my son was born, I was a stay at home mom but still needed to use my brain and keep busy. I have a background in textile design from Academy of Art in San Francisco. All the applique for the onesies and shirts is eco felt which is made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles (CPSA compliant) so it makes a cute way to recycle. I love to make items that are silly, fun, and of course anything food related! In addition to onesies and kids shirts I also make bibs, teething toys, hats, and decor.
Working with clay has always been a part of my life, but I fell in love with the wheel about 8 years ago when I moved from NYC to DC. Now, back in NYC, almost all of my production centers around the wheel. For me, the wheel represents unlimited functional and sculptural possibility.
My goal for this line of pottery is to fit seamlessly into a kitchen in a way that heightens the cooking and dining experience. Many of my pieces have a very specific usage, sponge holders, garlic scrapers, juicers, and spoon rests and coming from an art and sculpture background, I strive for pieces that are fully functional but also pleasing to look at.
Five | Six Textiles is a home decor brand that honors the heritage of traditional woven textiles from Côte d’Ivoire. We produce home goods in collaboration with the artisan collective of Waraniéné. The products are handwoven with 100% cotton sourced from local farms. The process is carefully crafted by hand and designs, based on traditional motifs, are constantly evolving, the same way cloth has been created for centuries.
Founded in Brooklyn in 2015 by Emma Wingfield and Laine Henry, Five | Six Textiles embraces time-honored weaving techniques, blending them with a modern aesthetic, and translating them into products that reflect your well-traveled home. It’s art with a function. Five | Six Textiles evolved out of a conversation with the artisans of Waraniéné in the summer of 2014. Emma, an African Art Historian, was on a trip researching artist workshops when she met Vali, the head of the collective. Vali expressed an interest in collaborating with someone who could increase exposure to consumers outside their community and consult on silhouette design. More business beyond the borders of their community means a more sustainable daily life and ensures the longevity of this practice. Emma went back to New York and told Laine, a designer, about the conversation and Five | Six started to develop. Emma and Laine formed a partnership with Waraniéné that celebrates their philosophy and approach to weaving with a desire to create a productive community that works, collectively, to keep the rich history of their shared craftsmanship alive.

Ana Banana’s limited smallscale production offers high quality swimwear with simple and elegant designs.
It believes swimwear to be extremely personal. In a flashy swimwear industry, Ana Banana’s vintage inspired styling is refreshing. “I think secondhand vintage designs are great but they can be overwhelming,” Diana said. “So I wanted to make swimwear that retain the vintage look with contemporary aesthetics of sophisticated colors, simpler, slimmer cuts, and fun.” Just in time for the season, Ana Banana will soon be announcing its new designs for the summer.
At Ana Banana, style, quality, and playfulness come together to create timeless swimwear for women. Our vintage-inspired mix-match patterns and colors are simple, yet elegant and vibrant with retro-urban touches. Most importantly, our designs are not contrived or gratuitous, but deeply felt. Inspired by nature and our desire to recreate and build on memories of easier and happier times, our swimwear is an ode to a nostalgic past and a brilliant future. Classic and playful, Ana Banana is effortlessly stylish.
The Diana Kim from Ana Banana Before settling in Brooklyn, Diana lived in more than four different cities across two continents. The cultural and linguistic adjustments she had to make since she was a child could have overwhelmed her, were it not for her love of art and design: Diana untangled the confusion into coherence through looking, holding, and making beautiful things. And on days when that was not enough, she would walk to the beach or the swimming pool for a dip. While working as a fashion designer, she came across an idea that could bring together art, design, and the beach: swimwear that take part in making beautiful moments come to life. Inspired by beautiful things abundant in nature and vintage inspired styles, Diana founded Ana Banana to make that vision come true.

Functional, fun handmade ceramics.
I design and make ceramics in the city. Mostly wheel thrown or hand built. Love minimal design inspired by nature or little things that I discover in everyday life.
Stvdio Brooklyn was founded in 2013, and debuted its first line of jewelry a year later. At the heart of Stvdio’s designs is a focus on construction, finding inspiration in the way components fit together and interact with the human form. Throughout the line, an inquiring eye will find playful spins on classic structure: a cleverly hidden clasp, a bracelet that uses tension to hold itself together, even an earring that you can choose to wear backward. These inventive constructions are combined with effortlessly graceful silhouettes to create the Stvdio Brooklyn aesthetic.
I graduated from RISD in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, and spent my first 7 years working for fashion brands designing jewelry, my last gig being the designer for Madewell. I started Stvdio because I really missed using my hands, and was burnt out from fast fashion. I wanted to give myself a chance to fall back in love with everything that I liked about being a creative, and designer. I'm inspired by modern design, comfort, and pushing the boundaries of construction. I'm a nerd for soldering metals together that are typically hard to meld, techniques that are time-consuming, and constructions that give the pieces unusual movement.
These homemade soaps are made with love and natural ingredients.
My interest in soapmaking stemmed from a simple seed of curiosity. I had explored different natural bath products for some time before I finally asked myself "Could I make my own?" I then began making small batches for friends and family and found that I genuinely enjoyed making and sharing these creations with others. The sudden joy that I found inspired me to start a shop and sud & joy was born. Through sud & joy, I aim to connect products back to the hands that made them and hope to send a little joy from my home to yours. When I'm not creating products for sud & joy, I work as a graphic/interactive designer by profession. I'm happily living, dancing and creating in NYC.
The vibrational energies of healing crystals are most powerful and pure in their natural state.
After working with the spiritual and physical healing properties of crystals using various healing techniques, we were inspired to spread our love of crystals with the creation of beautiful wearable accessories for the Soul. Devoted to making the metaphysical accessible to the masses, our jewelry is modern, whimsical, unique and timeless designed to look amazing dressed up or down. We select a combination of crystals designed for the maximum restoration of energetic wellbeing. Every piece in our collection is handcrafted in NYC with Love & Light, and we hope to pass this same intention onto its wearer.
My work is inspired by craft and pottery traditions that are sensitive to the beauty of natural materials and attentive to infusing everyday life with aesthetic pleasure.
I studied pottery in Mashiko, Japan and while I am unable to fire a wood-burning kiln here in Brooklyn, I do throw on a wooden Japanese kick wheel. I make my glazes using clay and wood ash that I collect in the Berkshires.
I strive to make simple, functional pieces that are pleasing to look at and satisfying to hold and use.
Coshanton woods began with us purchasing a piece of pristine piece of land with mountain spring water, diverse mature forest, & house that dates back to America's founding that is less than 70 miles away from NYC. Our home state (NJ) offers an incentive to landowners to maintain and manage the forests which includes the need to earn an "agricultural" income from the land. The overwhelming majority of owners satisfy their requirement by spraying herbicides & selling firewood. We instead found inspiration by observing the boundless bounty of beneficial flora growing around us and then through research, discovered the multitude of beneficial properties of each plant. We then imagined a different path that sustainably harvests the living all around us and transforms their essences (flavor, scent, color, texture) into consumable products.
Our product line diverse from tea to smudges to natural perfumes to skincare to home decor to natural dyed textile items for our sister fashion label ajna.
I'm Sophia Faye Medina; traveler, plant lady, designer. I am passionate about community and the strength of sisterhood- without which I'd be lost. My designs tend toward the feminine and whimsical, and are heavily influenced by my time in and around Eastern Indian culture. The eastern Indian motifs such as designs found in traditional mendhi patterns and in Indian architecture largely inspired me in my design.
I love art and jewelry, being the ultimate functional art, has become my medium of choice. I decided to pursue jewelry after studying fine arts and finding that few people are into "pretty" art unless they can wear it. I'm constantly inspired by my fellow jewelers, some of whom have their own businesses and some of whom are still finding their voices. We have created an incredible support system for each other.
I handcraft my designs from a small studio in the Bronx, New York. My pieces are showcased in brass, sterling silver and 14k gold with gemstones accents. Sustainability is one of my top priorities and I will continue to work to make Sophia Faye Jewelry as eco-friendly as possible!
We created Olen from our desire to have beautifully designed, sustainably produced, non-gendered neutral clothing. We want to know exactly what fabrics our clothes are made from, where they are manufactured, who spins the yarn, and cuts the cloth, and prints the designs, and sews the styles, and how our clothing impacts our world. We want to think about our clothes not just from a standpoint of how cute or stylish they are, but how ethical, and healthful, and meaningful they are. We want our clothing to be for everyone. We want more knowledge and less stuff.
Olen Organic products are born in Brooklyn and mindfully made in LA. We use GOTScertified 100% organic cotton, unbleached fabrics, water-based inks, and nickel-free trims. We never use silicone softener, chlorine bleach, formaldehyde, or other harsh and harmful chemicals. We are inspired by clean, simple design, especially midcentury modern and Scandinavian art and architecture. We manufacture everything in family owned and operated facilities in LA, in small batches to control quality and reduce waste. We are making safer, softer, better baby clothing and accessories for our families and hopefully yours!
I am an artist living and working in Brooklyn. I design tee-shirts, all original designs and hand print them in my studio. I am influenced by old Brooklyn and evolving Brooklyn. I love vintage imagery and combining current ideas into the design. I create the screens and hand print using water-based ink to insure a soft touch to the tees. They are high quality cotton tees, soft and a great fit and style.
I was an art teacher for 11 years and this past year made the official transition to practice art full time. I have a studio in the Gowanus Print Lab, where I began screen printing on leather and other apparel.
Meraki means to do something with love, passion and creativity; to put your soul into whatever you do. This philosophy translates into my work greatly because I am so experimental with my work but every experiment is part of my journey as an artist, putting my soul into everything I do and creating a visual journal through printmaking.

loloplant was founded by lauren williams - a long island native, now living in brooklyn. after spending dozens of weekends collecting interesting cacti and obsessing over unique pottery, her apartment quickly filled with prickly friends. she started giving them as gifts to (human) friends who didn't want to deal with the whole process of buying soil, pottery, etc to put together a store bought cactus. turning hobby/obsession into possible new career, lauren created loloplant. working full time in the fashion industry, she decided to use loloplant as a respite from her daily life and as a way to ground herself after a rough day. lauren has a BFA degree in apparel design from the rhode island school of design. she applies her design education towards her aesthetic choices for loloplant, and her work experience towards the business side.

Mawusi, inspired by a Ghanaian heritage and love of abstracts, makes available high quality handcrafted accessories, jewelry, and clothing. Playfully designed to encourage a lighthearted, self-expressive look on life.
Mawusi is for you, the conscientious individual, who value that which inspires within you a childlike confidence and excitement for daily living.
I taught myself to crochet up in my favorite tree when I was about nine years old growing up in Ghana, and I enthusiastically taught myself to knit recently. In grad school, I studied English literature (as I had done for my undergrad along with minors in photography and education). Apart from designing and creating for Mawusi, I am also an abstract photography artist, a writer (poetry & short stories), a lifestyle blogger, and an awkward social-introvert. Although I have no formal background in fashion design, I have always entertained a great passion for style——with emphasis on personal interpretations.
Mawusi is a one woman operated lifestyle brand and all pieces are carefully designed and painstakingly made by hands in a pet-free, smoke-free, laughter and (good!) music filled apartment in Queens, New York; where I live with my dearest Mother (whom my brand is named after). All Mawusi pieces come in small batches, lovingly and patiently crafted with every gratitude for life and love.

Renee Frances Jewelry is designed and made in Brooklyn, NY. The design process is intuitive and allows for accidental "surprises." Her designs are not based on a fixed blueprint but rather grow from a loose idea and a process of discovery. Designs begin by casting a found object, often from nature, which is then manipulated into something new. Sometimes the final piece resembles the cast object but often it is so far removed from the original casting that it is unrecognizable while still retaining an essential organic quality.
Renee's love of travel is often a source of inspiration and an opportunity to find interesting materials. The first collection made this way, Tonkawa Trail, was created by casting part of a pine cone and using the cross sections as "material" to build the collection. Subsequent collections are based on castings from objects found in LA, Bhutan, and New Mexico, and other locations around the world.
I have worked as a designer in NYC for 10 years. But, as a closet environmentalist, I have been recently looking into the effects of fast fashion and finding it going against most of the values I hold dear. I have joined communities of designers, shop owners, writers, and teachers in NYC that are spreading awareness of the waste and exploitation that go along with fast fashion. Now that my eyes are open I have decided to move forward with trying to start my own slow fashion and ethical line.
As I followed my dreams of traveling through India, I was inspired by meeting the artisans along the way. The amount of craft that is embedded into the culture there is truly inspiring. I fell in love with the art of block printing, and Have Love, Must Travel was born. Sophisticated boho-inspired clothing for women hand printed in by artisans in India. I collaborate directly with artisans in India to carve and print my own fabrics. I only use natural fibers and different viscose qualities in my line and it is produced at an ethical factory I have visited and worked in myself.
The Studio Nook is a textile-arts shop that uses only natural fibers and is 100% plastic free and cruelty-free. Everything is carefully and lovingly made by hand with natural materials purchased from small and often women-run businesses in the United States (and one alpaca farm in Canada!). All items are 100% cotton, linen, or a blend of the two. The spring collection will include cotton flannel scarves (perfect for those still chilly spring days!), crochet baskets, linen totes, zipper pouches, and decorative embroidery hoops.
My name is Tatiana and I am a self-taught fiber artist based in Brooklyn, NY. I am very passionate about supporting small, local, and (whenever possible) women run businesses. To me, shopping small and local is woven into every step of the creative process. Additionally, I firmly believe in the importance of developing sustainable, environmentally friendly practices. I put a lot of thought into every stage of the creative process, from deciding what materials to use and where to buy it from, to the level of detail that goes into every stitch.
Starting in the Spring of 2015, after growing tired of the basic 8 to 6 desk job, Erin Mead decided it was time to cut back on the factor that restrained her creativity and start a new side occupation. After much influence from magazines, books, and renovation shows, her love for retro, artistic, and industrial styles grew. It was time to set aside adultish things and embrace her inner child again.
Now working the desk job only part time, she found her soul's inner peace and contentment with sewing, sculpting, painting, and staining different items, which led her to create Brooklyn Slope.
Brooklyn Haberdashery is founded on a life-long love of making things by hand and helping others to do the same. Kristin grew up with a brilliant mother and two talented grandmothers (both named Betty!) who inspired her with their sewing, crocheting, quilting, painting, and general domestic badass-ery. Kristin has continually made things--from the timber frame house she designed and built with her husband down to the annual handmade holiday cards. Kristin is frequently asked, “how did you make that; can you show me?” That, coupled with her heart-pounding obsession for sewing supplies prompted Kristin to transition her handmade hobbies to her vocation.
When not creating things with textiles, Kristin is: tasting her way through the world; canning, preserving, and cooking; brewing beer and cider with her husband; making jewelry with her son; combing flea markets; and riding her Dutch bike. She also works as an organization development consultant and she lives in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.
Collective Hand is a textile design studio specializing in naturally dyed fabrics.

Collective Hand is devoted to honoring the timely process of this art form, considering the integrity of each and every piece.

A Southern California native, Kimberly started her professional visual arts career at the young age of 13 performing for the Mouse at the Disneyland Hotel. A steady 20+year career of singing, dancing and musical theater led her to NYC in 2001. After years of hitting the pavement and as life would have it, Kimberly experienced a very dark and emotional period. She quickly turned to painting as a means to release all that she was experiencing.
Kimberly is a self-taught artist who has studied various styles of the masters, especially leaning towards O’Keeffe, Van Gogh and Turner. She draws her inspiration from the mystery that is life and is driven by music and affectivity. Kimberly’s art is abstract with influences of nature, with the colors leading the emotions of the shapes. Her background in song and dance also lends itself to the lyrical quality of her work.
Kimberly's debut solo showing in NYC in December 2009 had great success and her work can be now be seen in private collections across the country as well as in Canada, Sweden, New Zealand and Japan.
Miss Abbott currently resides in New York, NY and travels often for inspiration with her artist/photographer husband.

JS Candle Studio started as a hobby in 2014. I set out to make coconut wax meditation candles, experimented with pillar and votive molds and found that it made more sense to make container candles. I took two years to research and develop the fragrances of my collection, including going to the Fraganord Factory in Grasse, France (perfume factory of the world) to learn more about fragrances and blending.
The business officially launched in October 2016 and I am proud to say that I'm ready to sell in person vs online. My products are stocked at Brooklyn Collective as well as available on Jet.com, Houzz.com, and WolfandBadger.com.
BrooklynDesign.store was created by Jessica Furst of Furst Impressions Design, an award winning graphic design agency located South Brooklyn. Jessica began making greeting cards from scraps of paper from other projects. Eventually this evolved into a company with a full line of cards, drink ware, and other products showcasing her love of Kings County.
I paint the landscape of New York City. I am fascinated with rollercoasters, architectural details such as cornices and anything kitschy Americana like roadside signs. I combine literal representation with abstract elements to focus on what I want people to see I find interesting about a place. What I find interesting are often details and the beauty in patterns like the Spanish tile on the house in “Ovington Avenue” or the ironwork on the Manhattan Bridge. Brilliant and vibrant color combined with a wonky sense of perspective bring movement to my paintings and a fresh view on city landscapes. Unusual cropping and framing of images add to the overall look of my artwork. I often incorporate text and imagery I find in street signs to give a narrative sometimes ironic or humorous to my artwork. An example of this is the Nathan’s hot dog man wearing a little apron and pointy shoes or the balding chubby man hoisting a burger above his head atop “Paul’s Daughter’s” on the boardwalk in many of my Coney Island pieces. I work in a variety of mediums including Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastel and Linoleum block printing. My work works ranges from tiny watercolors to large scale murals I have done on site in various businesses.

Spreadmmms produces small batch, artisanal olive tapenade, and other "arrestingly delicious spreads".
This amazing tapenade was created many years ago in a tiny kitchen in Harlem for a little "get together" for a fun group of friends. The recipe was cobbled together from tons of fantastic taste memories of tapenades from all around the Mediterranean. It is zesty and spicy and intriguing. It was a hit! And, over the years many batches were produced as the recipe just got better and better.
Now, the savory goodness of Spreadmmms can be enjoyed anytime. Just pick up a jar and pair it with some crusty bread, wholesome crackers, or sneak it into a variety of other delicious dishes!
'FARM TO MY KITCHEN, THEN TO YOUR KITCHEN..'
-- Sufia H. (Founder)
Like all creations, it started with a dream. That simple dream of winning the national prize of "the hottest hot sauce" eventually propelled to a goal. I was a graduate of F.I.T. Working in the confines of Fashion, board meetings, and in search of the latest style trends; I was far from being a connoisseur of the kitchen. As a first generation American, I sought comfort from the hectics of Manhattan and returned to my roots of Bangladesh, through culinary exploration. Growing up with the richness and depths of classic South Asian peppers and spices, in the summer of 2015, what became a de-stress refuge transformed into a passionate and driven business.
The integrity of cleanliness is upheld thoroughly through daily maintenance of my kitchen before any batch is made. With each ingredient carefully hand chosen from the local organic farmer's market, Silly Chilly Hot Sauce produces only the finest and freshest condiment from my table to yours. Each jar is handcrafted combining the right temperature and spices to maintain the efficacy of flavors.
This gluten-free product will be a hit at your next BBQ, wedding, and or corporate event leaving your guests with a unique culinary experience. It's more than just "sass in a glass," Silly Chilly Hot Sauce is sass in a sauce!

She has 5 chocolate babes in her company all uniquely tasty and delicious (semi sweet, toasted almond, cinnamon chipotle, espresso, rosemary and earl grey.
I have always had a deep love for the classics, whether it is film, literature, theater or music, and have always had a strong affinity for the 1920s40s it's the era that speaks to my heart. It's also the Golden Age for candy making, and where I get my inspiration.
My true passion is candymaking and baking. For years I have made candies based on classic recipes from the Golden Age; and when I started RubyLu Confections, I decided to tie in my passion for all things classic, but give the flavors a little update and give a nod to the classics. Each of our flavor collections is named for a popular standard song, and limited edition flavors are inspired by classic cinema, music, and literature. My confections are, in every way, classic!
My caramels and fudge are handcrafted in small batches, right in New York City. Every candy is made with only the best and freshest ingredients, from Belgian chocolate to fresh fruit purees, and following techniques that have been used for nearly a century.
I hope you enjoy eating these treats as much as I do making them! And remember...
Eat more candy!
We make caffeinated fruit sodas with cold brew coffee. We use real coldpressed fruit and make the soda in small batches using premium coffee and organic maple. The idea came to me when I wanted to make a substitute for energy drinks from simple ingredients. I am an avid skier and this is my natural answer to the Red Bull's of the world. The beverage is a good source of minerals, electrolytes, and caffeine.
We currently sell at a number of gyms, health food stores. This Spring, I plan to reach out to local farms so that I can work directly with the producers. We are also releasing a third flavor this Spring Ginger/Wheatgrass.
