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.

Our brand's driving philosophy is one of simplicity and minimalism, while embracing the imperfect and natural. MATINE represents a paradox of sorts, like so many of our customers. We strive for clarity, we are drawn to exacting modernity and we want to eliminate excess. Yet we produce our goods with our own hands, using natural materials like animal hides, scars and all. MATINE is minimalism reimagined in the context of reality; simplicity that celebrates the inherent messiness of life.
MATINE goods are responsibly produced in the United States. All products are crafted by hand in our Washington, D.C. studio or manufactured in small batches in Portland, OR.
Awl & Sundry was founded with a simple mission: to democratize the luxury of bespoke footwear.
Back in 2012, Nikunj, our founder, was faced with a dilemma many men share: he couldn't find a sanely priced pair of dress shoes that really fit! After a month and a half of searching, he found he had to choose between comfort, style and affordability. Finding two of the three quality criteria was easy enough but all three... almost impossible! Awl & Sundry was born of the frustration of not being able to find the perfect pair of shoes at a fair price.
Nikunj decided to take matters into his own hands and began canvassing the planet with one goal in mind: to find an artisanal cobbler who could produce a well-made, custom pair of shoes at a reasonable price.
During his search, he visited some of the factories that produce shoes for the big global brands and was shocked to discover a well-kept secret. Many of these brands mass-manufacture shoes for $15-$20 per pair and then mark them up to $150-$200. That's right, a whooping 1000% markup!!!
The worst part: often the quality of the materials and the shoe construction process was not only harmful to our health but also to our environment.
But the search proved worthy of the effort when he came upon a group of distinguished craftsmen who are still employing the age-old process of handcrafting shoes. These shoes were beautiful, stylish, comfortable and durable - all at a production cost significantly below what a custom shoemaker in the U.S. would charge. In 2013, Nikunj decided to share this find with the legions of men forced to walk through life in uncomfortable, mass-produced shoes and soon thereafter, Awl & Sundry was born!

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.
Locally Sourced Materials + Handmade (in Brooklyn & Hampton Bays, NY)
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.

Luxurious, all natural and organically derived skincare inspired by the beauty, botanicals and bountiful healing traditions of St. Lucia and the Caribbean.
Brooke is a woodworker and artist based in Gowanus, Brooklyn. A classically trained dancer, she performed for many years with Cincinnati Ballet, and continues to thrive on mind-body labor through woodworking. Brooke gained experience working in design/build studios throughout New York City, most recently contributing to custom furniture and installation projects with Aardvark Interiors.
Brooke draws inspiration from wabi-sabi aesthetics and metaphysics, maps and cartography, interiors and spaces, and the sense of place. Brooke personally gathers salvaged and reclaimed wood from across the U.S., and hopes that the pieces she makes both evoke their place of origin, and contribute to the consonance of their place of rest.
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.
The Seam Designs is an eclectic product line hand created and produced by Lyndsay Senerchia in the heart of Brooklyn, NY.
Creator Lyndsay Senerchia has an instinct and ability to craft homespun apparel that feel as welcoming as the brand she has built.
Raised on the coast of central New Jersey, Lyndsay went on to travel the world through her studies and volunteer work. It was in middle America, however, where she gained inspiration for her designs. Patterns and elements that are sophisticatedly simple yet rich in comfort linked with Lyndsay's way of thinking. "There's a luxury in the heart of America; it's understated and appealing. This feeling of familiarity -- it's palpable -- and it's exactly what I hoped to instill in my merchandise."
In 2011, Lyndsay became employed by the world renowned Bloomingdales, serving as a stylist. There she worked with art directors, photographers, models, and specific fashion houses to create a vision that communicated both a sense of beauty and authenticity.
Just one year later, she was promoted to studio coordinator at Bloomingdales, running their still-life operation in Midtown East Manhattan. And as of March 2014, Lyndsay's been working as the Associate Photo Producer at the Bloomingdales' headquarters studio.
This brand is available to everyone -- women, men, children, newborns. Above all else, The Seam Design has an ease. It's a sincere make, one that is connected to the roots of family, community, and naturalness. It harps on an enthusiastic pursuit for a way of life.

Founded by Rajiv Fernandez, his first two books 'Baby to Brooklyn' and 'Baby to Big' are high concept board books that translate familiar objects and ideas from a baby's world to that of their hip millennial adult counterparts, through bold, iconic images. ('Baby to Big' publishes December 5th, so this market will be the first opportunity for people to get the book!) This iconic imagery is also available as giclee prints and has themes from different cities to inspiring individuals.
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.
My name is Cheryl Perry - I am the ceramicist behind the work of C. Perry Ceramics. I'm a professional chef and baker by trade, who's trying to make the cross-over from working with food and flour to working with clay and glaze, full-time. I have a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and am a designer, a lover of alchemy, lover of color and shapes, a craftswoman, a maker. I love working with my hands and making something useful - hence home and tableware.
My work is rustic, useful, whimsical, simple and it's intended to bring a sense of ease to any table--to be a foil for the world of casted, symmetrical, and manufactured wares. C. Perry Ceramics is my inspiration towards being creative every day.
All of my pots are food safe, dishwasher safe, and with the exception of pots with luster (gold accents), microwave safe.

Calyer Ceramics, a Brooklyn-based studio run by Michelle Smith McLaughlin, offers quirky ceramic tableware with personality. Her stoneware bowls, mugs, spoons, and platters are tactile and organically-shaped, with soft, rounded silhouettes echoing the human form.
Michelle designs and produces each collection, either on the wheel or entirely by hand. Careful attention is given to the functionality and ergonomics of every design, including weight, feel of the handle, and how each piece relates to the food or drink to be served from it. Every piece is thoughtfully glazed, with colors and textures inspired by the lakes and skies of Maine, melty ice cream, and cantaloupes.
McLaughlin's BFA in photography influences her attention to surface texture and graphic patterns. Some of which can be seen here: www.michellesmithmclaughlin.com.
One small step for mankind, one giant leap for socks.
Locknesters are a new kind of designer toy. They are the result of a fascination with unconventional geometries and a desire to make toys that encourage interaction. They could be thought of as three-dimensional jigsaw puzzles, each model can be taken apart and assembled, used as a challenge to friends or a distraction from work. Locknesters love to be displayed and are great at livening up a room, we hope you like them.
Made in Brooklyn.
We started Soapso because we love making things that make people smile. We make soaps that fit your style and add a bit of cheer to your day every time you wash your hands.
We design and make every Soapso bar entirely by hand in our small New York City studio in small batches. We start by brainstorming fun design ideas, sketching them out, and then designing them digitally. We make the bars by layering different soaps, carefully cutting out the designs, arranging them together, and then topping everything off with a clear soap layer. It's a long process, but we love it, and we think it's great that something as simple as soap could bring people joy.
Every bar of Soapso soap is 100% glycerin-based soap. You can use the whole thing, including the part with the design. Our soaps are vegan-friendly and never tested on animals. They're phthalate-free and paraben-free. Our full list of ingredients can be found on each product page. Soapso soaps may be fun, but we take the quality of our ingredients very seriously.

Sophia lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband Daniel and dog Ronni.
In her studio she marbles paper and explores color through bundle and immersion dyeing using natural materials like flowers, plants, insects, metals and food scraps. Having a background in theatre arts and early childhood education Sophia is inspired by exploratory experiences that create opportunities for movement and the use of our senses with the hope of connecting us to place and time.
She is currently working on designing a collection of clothing that will be made and hand dyed in New York City.
Yes, we are closed on Mondays.
We are a textile brand currently making baskets and bags out of rope and thread. We are here to give fair wages to our producers and spread the word about ethical manufacturing. Every item is made with love in our studio in Brooklyn, NY.
Why Closed Mondays? We feel as though the traditional Monday through Friday nine to five isn't necessary in the modern world. We believe that if people have a great life outside of work, they bring more energy into their work. "Great life" means different things to different people, but we think that having extra time to take care of life stuff (whether it's family, self-care, doctors appointments, or just a whole day to binge watch TV) allows people to fully focus on work stuff while at work.
Closed Mondays was founded by Bekka Palmer. Bekka is a designer, photographer and generally crafty person who feels physical pain at the sight of fast fashion and poor working conditions. Her grandma taught her to sew by age 6 and she hasn't stopped since.
My name is Mélanie and I am the creator of La Brooklynoise. I left Paris three years ago with my family to move to Brooklyn.
I brought with me my passion for designing which has been fueled by Brooklyn creative energy.
I have always made my kids personalized chic accessories and clothing. Brooklyn seemed to have liked these French inspired outfits and people began asking me to share them, so here they are.
La Brooklynoise is always working on a new project, inspired in Brooklyn everyday life and in that French je ne sais quoi. All of La Brooklynoise products are unique and handmade with love.
MARIONWILD is a contemporary jewelry line founded by designer/owner Katie Glenn.
Katie’s fascination with fine details found in both nature and architecture inspired her to create a jewelry line that celebrates repetition and simplicity.
After years of working as a fashion jewelry designer for a mass market audience, she decided to venture back into a more thoughtfully-minded world of handmade jewelry.
Every piece is designed with the idea that everybody should have the opportunity to own jewelry that is high quality & unique, yet affordable. MARIONWILD aims to redefine the new classic for everyday wear by highlighting everyday life through the integration of art and design.
All jewelry is designed and handmade in her sunny apartment in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
The Story of My Darlin'
WHO ARE YOU? WHAT'S YOUR DEAL?
My Darlin’ is a design and paper goods studio founded by Priyanka Batra, inventor of the Notevelope.
A love for pretty pastels, bold typography, vintage novelty prints, 1940s banter, 1980s irreverance, and a susceptibility to love at first sight are at the heart of the company.
To sum it up, My Darlin' is vintage-inspired, linguistically-inclined, and romantic at heart.
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO?
We design type, pattern, color, and language inspired greeting cards, wedding invitations, notevelopes, gift wrap, pencils and gift items.
We also work with small businesses and corporate clients on custom design projects.
Everything is designed out of our sunny Greenpoint studio in Brooklyn, New York. Letterpress items are printed in-house and we partner with eco-friendly manufacturers for items we don't produce ourselves.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
We make products for and inspired by the ones we love—our darlins.
When My Darlin’ launched with a collection of customizable wedding invitations in 2014, the name My Darlin’ felt like a perfect fit. Knowing that the company would eventually expand beyond wedding and wanting the flexibility to evolve in unpredictable ways, the name couldn’t be wedding-specific or even paper-specific. It had to be something that would fit our slightly nostalgic spirit and also make sense with our products.
We are a Japanese artisan design duo handcrafting metal-art by Masumi Hayashi and woodwork by Ryu Iida in our Brooklyn-based studio.
As artists, designers and craftsman, we share over 10 years experience in the art of metalwork and woodwork. We honor the process of “thinking with our hands” and embrace fine detail found in art, craft and design. We work in unison, creating metal and woodwork merged into jewelry, objects and furniture designs that engage the spirit of personal adventure. Through an exchange of ideas, we experiment with organically inspired materials to fashion fresh forms and evoke curiosity.
LIO and LINN is modern by nature of its organic evolution. We honor unique materials, as well as the collectors who live with and wear our artisan designs. Custom design is a welcome option for all our collections.
Thinking with our hands...our creative curiosity lives in our designs.
“Iʼm going to see the world”...LIO and LINN handcrafts and explores our life joy.

Simulacra is a lifestyle brand born from a desire to design aesthetically, create responsibly, and jump into the unknown. Our goal is to speak not only to a person’s sense of style but also to one’s beliefs and agency and to how small choices have rippling effects. Simulacra is an attempt to create clothing, starting from these basic principles, in order to make some sense of what the fashion industry has become.

CASTLECLIFF is a heritage costume jewelry brand, established in 1918 and manufacturing in NYC from 1940 through the 1970's. We are picking up where the iconic brand left off, with bold 1970's inspired silhouettes, poured glass stones and a natural history museum vibe.
All of our pieces are designed and responsibly crafted in NYC. As an initiative to reuse the waste of our industry, all of our stones are vintage glass from 1940's and 50's, and many of our chains are reclaimed vintage chains found in warehouses around the US. Our selection of deadstock vintage earrings are from the 1960’s and refinished in our Brooklyn studio.
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 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.
