In 2009, the love of making furniture brought me to Brooklyn. That and an incredible lady who eventually married me. We now have a daughter that even loves to tinker in the studio. More than a few tufts of grey hair and three progressively bigger shops in seven short years, we present to you our product and process. Analog Modern is a multidisciplinary studio primarily working in furniture, but we've designed retail spaces, built treehouses, dabbled in table top product design, and even made quilts.
MUJUS designer Paola Delgado started her journey in 2011. After working for Goldman Sachs as an investment banker for four years, she decided to travel back to her childhood country of Peru. Paola's ultimate goal during her return to Peru was to discover who she really was and what she cared about in life. While traveling around Peru, Paola decided to use her knowledge to work towards creating a company that would reflect her own values and beliefs.
MUJUS is the reflection of Paola's traditional Peruvian roots combined with the urban life of Brooklyn. Its jewelry and accessories demonstrate the use of high quality and yet, ecofriendly materials. Instead of using plastic, MUJUS focuses on using more organic materials such as corozo. This is a seed that comes from palm trees within the rainforests of South America and is the only sustainable substitute to animal ivory. Not only does MUJUS create jewelry, the company also makes opportunities.
MUJUS creates its craft with the belief that people should be employed under fair work standards that help them to develop and grow. The company’s hope is to touch the lives of people worldwide through its designs and opportunities.

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.

Our company Ponchos Rojas is the culmination of many intersecting interests and passions. Greg is from the U.S. Colorado, and Catalina was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia. We crossed paths in design school and now live in NYC.
Our love of nature, family, and a passion to know where we come from has led us to travel throughout Bolivia to see the beautiful natural environments, experience the local customs, and learn from the fascinating history this area has. The high plateau of Bolivia and Peru has been the cradle of South American cultures for thousands of years. Not only have the ancient cultures of this area given the world modern staples like spicy chilies and potatoes, but these people also had one of the most advanced and beautiful weaving techniques in the ancient world. These techniques have lasted the test of time and the curve of history, but modernity is finally threatening to erase this weaving knowledge and the beautiful woven goods once and for all.
We wish to share the pieces we have found and the knowledge we have gleaned with the world, and in the process to help save a little bit of history. While we aren't there yet we are working towards helping to fund programs that help teach weaving techniques so everyone can enjoy what it has taken millennia to produce.
WE GATHER is a brand of hand dyed, hand woven home textiles and an educational textile studio right here in Brooklyn. I started WE GATHER with a mission to create beautiful, functional textiles that become more and more meaningful the more they are loved, and to bring the magic and satisfaction of textile making to others. From yarn to fabric, all WE GATHER products are entirely made by hand in my Gowanus studio, keeping small batch textile production alive and well in our local community.
The WE GATHER line includes cozy home staples like blankets, pillows, and rugs, DIY supplies like hand dyed silk ribbons and dye kits, and small home accessories like our signature Plockets and lavender sachets. WE GATHER Workshops are hosted in my studio and in locations around NYC and the US and aim to put the making magic in the hands of others. There is nothing more inspiring than helping someone else discover their own creative potential!
I'm Undra, this is my clothing brand. Wow it's been an entire two years since I launched UCNY. I love fashion and I love entrepreneurship but together, it can be a very difficult thing to grow and sustain. I'll admit, the internet makes it easier for small things to look grand and it also make it easier to reach you guys! I'm thankful for both because I absolutely LOVE this brand and it's organic growth over this short time.
Trying to define the brand and my aesthetic can be difficult to put into words. Not because I don't know, but sometimes words don't fully express the feeling, you know?! In 2015, I started the brand with 6 principles; Fashion, Dance, Persistence, Friendship, Timelessness and LOVE. As I look back on the 6 collections, all embodied each those principles. Look, I don't set out creating collection saying, "must be true to the principles of the brand - or else" it just happens, each and every time.
I see other elements that have evolved into the line and will hold true as we go forward:
BOLD (color and prints), MODERN (clean lines and silhouettes) and FUN (embellishments and metallics).
A natural evolution of the brand with all the things I LOVE!
The name Ixmucane (ish-moo-ka-né) was inspired by my Guatemalan-Mayan heritage and can be translated as “mother earth” or the creator of life and light.
While growing up I learned to love the raw beauty and simplicity of nature. I was taught by my grandmother, who often created balms and tonics from herbs sprouting on our backyard, that nature had amazing gifts for us and there was nothing that we couldn't heal with a few of it’s generous ingredients. She would cover my skin in aloe vera, soothe any irritations with honey and rinse my hair with rosemary and rose water. Her love for herbs, botanicals and natural and organic products became my driving passion for creating this beautiful line of skin care.
Ixmucane Skin Care vows to never use synthetic preservatives, parabens, artificial perfumes, dyes or any other harmful chemicals in our products.
Our collection is simple yet effective just like every single natural element that makes it unique.
Ixmucane skin care is carefully handcrafted in small batches utilizing only high quality rich and nourishing ingredients that work together to strengthen, renew, protect and rejuvenate your delicate skin.
I am a one woman letterpress shop based in Brooklyn, New York. Two years ago, I successfully funded my business with Kickstarter to restore a letterpress printing machine to working
order and now I have two presses and run my business out of my studio in Bedford-Stuyvesant. I've gone to the National Stationery Show two years in a row and have stores nation wide as well as internationally selling my cards. I sell quirky cards full of puns designed and printed by me.
We are De Islas, a duo of artists creating original hand-drawn patterns. Our patterns are available in fabrics, limited editions of ready-to-wear, original items or anything you can think of covering in our patterns! We hope that our patterns can create spaces and objects that can change your experiences and resonate in your memories.
De Islas patterns are original collaborative illustrations. We believe that original is everyone and everywhere, just about as unavoidable as the difference in the way people walk. Just as no 2 seeds are (naturally) identical, the challenge in this age of biological engineering is to access individuality. The way we approach each new imagery and theme is a process of tapping into and revealing, which is why we consider De Islas a labor of discovery. Amid a frenzy of influences and inspirations in our environment- those consciously acquired and those helplessly consumed, among learned skills and intuition, collective experiences and personal habits - we try to uncover buried uniqueness.
We are MAKERS MARKET, a place for handcrafted home goods with a focus on textiles.
We are makers, but more importantly we are longtime friends who met in NYC, live in Brooklyn and hail from Scotland. Having spent years working together for an iconic fashion brand, we share a deep knowledge of the industry. Wanting the chance to create something for ourselves, we sought a platform to develop and celebrate our shared unique design sensibilities, passion for home goods, and textiles.
Thus MAKERS MARKET was born.
Our goal is to create products that are modern, functional, pleasing to the eye, and thoughtful in every aspect of their fabrication. Using environmentally friendly materials and producing our goods locally are important values for us. In a seemingly endless market of seasonably disposable accessories we wanted a place to go for functional home goods, that could be produced locally with responsible and craft driven methods in mind.
Our website serves as a showcase for our products and in time those of other like-minded Makers. We believe in the power of community, hence our name, and through collaborating with homegrown suppliers and vendors we seek to encourage a ground-based network of design, creativity, trade and fabrication.
For now, we launch with one product; The Cosy - used in every Scottish household to keep the contents of the teapot warm, a job it’s been doing since 19th century Britain.
We’ve updated the cosy to make it a staple in 21st century American households. Inspired by the Heath Ceramic teapot, Chemex® pour over coffee maker, and the Bodum® French Press, we want to re-create the cosy with our modern aesthetic.
Our prints are designed in Brooklyn and screen-printed by us upstate and at times here in Brooklyn. We have both spent years developing print driven collections, Olga is a designer with a particular love for denim and Angela is a textile designer so prints are part of our DNA.
Eventually we will have a full collection of Handcrafted Home Goods, but in the meantime we are designing one room at a time - Kitchen first.
-Olga Joan + Angela Martin

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.
Yankin shoes were created by busy women, for busy women, out of a need for a foldable ballet flat that met their lifestyle demands. Designed by founders Takiyah Stephenson, Taisha Stephenson and Candice Stephenson, the trio were tired of swapping out their high-end leather heels for a frumpy pair of cheap metallic folding flats that wore out in a week.
In their gripe of finding the perfect foldable ballet flat, they sought to create a shoe that could be worn from day to night without sacrificing style or professionalism. Creating a shoe that was durable, comfortable, and smart were musts in the design process. Yankin is carefully handcrafted in Macerata, Italy with quality Italian leather.
Fold. Lift, Tuck. Yankin folds in three easy steps for ultimate functionality so you can change into heels for that important presentation. Just tuck them into your purse and yank them back out when you’re done.
Unlike most foldable flats that expose your feet to the turmoil of feeling every pebble and crack in the ground, Yankin features a solid triple sole that protects your feet while ensuring comfort. All styles come with a custom shoe pouch to keep your Yankins protected when they’re off duty - it’s the least we could do for their hard work!
Your former frumpy flats will no longer be the culprit of a daily walk of shame. It’s time for a Yankin upgrade.

I am a crochet artist living in Brooklyn, New York.
My love for craft began at an early age when I first learned to crochet at 7 years old. Eventually this lead me to the study of art therapy and then on to footwear and bag design. In New York City I brought this knowledge to the fashion industry working for such companies as Marc Jacobs, Opening Ceremony and Converse. Upon refusing a job offer to relocate out of New York, the decision was made for me to return to my art therapy roots and my craft and the opening of my design studio in Brooklyn.
Originally from Arizona, I combine a desert feel with Japanese influences to create natural, handcrafted goods to wear and for the home. My working process is personal and methodical. Each piece is truly
one-of-a-kind. I love teaching and sharing this process with others in my studio and around the country.

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.

They are high quality cotton tees, soft and a great fit and style.
I named my shop "Pixiu" after the Chinese mythological creature. Growing up, I was given crystal pendants carved into the shape of a Pixiu. My mother told me that it was for protection and good luck. I wanted the same sentiment to go with the pieces that I make. I hope each one finds a great home and will bring you luck as well!
I started making jewelry for myself. I wanted unique, high quality yet affordable pieces due to my particular taste and skin sensitivities to specific metals. I am careful to use only 14k gold fill and sterling silver, so rest easy if you have nickel or brass allergies!

PLAITLY is a Brooklyn-based jewelry brand, founded by architect Caroline Quinio, that explores emerging technologies in jewelry design. Each piece is designed digitally using 3d-modeling software and scripting to achieve complex shapes and forms inspired by nature and the built environment.
As digital technology becomes more and more integrated into our daily lives, the concept of "handmade" evolves with the times. PLAITLY jewelry bridges the gap between craft and technology, redefining "handmade" as a process that begins with freehand digital 3d-modelling and ends with hand polishing and finishing. 3d-printing allows scripts to become physical, tangible works of art, and 3d-printed components are elevated through integrating traditional beads, chains, and crystals. The final result is a statement piece that could not have been created any other way.
From our studio to your home, we strive to create elegant and refined jewelry that tells your stories and can be worn either everyday or during life's special moments.
I’ve lived in NYC for 8 years. I moved here to study Communicative Sciences and Disorders at New York University and went on to finish my Master’s of Science in Speech Language Pathology at Brooklyn College. While my love of science lives on, I felt a yearning to fulfill the other side of my brain, the more emotional and artistic side. I've been working with clay consistently for 2 years but I dabbled a bit during my childhood. I love that ceramics give me aspects of chemistry, physics, as well as emotional and artistic expression in one experience. I work with a white clay and a red clay. I utilize a pottery wheel to create the base for some pieces and with others I sculpt them by hand or by shaping clay slaps. When I create a piece I focus on the functional aspects as well as the decorative because I am interested in exploring the two parts of my brain. My favorite part of creating a piece is the feeling of finding something that is already there versus pushing to create a specific thing. I hope my pieces make people smile as they are meant to be whimsical and fun.
“Hi, I’m Pantera, the hands and heart behind Brooklyn Mojo, Inc. I’m a textile-printing gal born and raised in (you guessed it) Brooklyn, New York.”
I love textiles, always have, always will. My love of hand printed textiles, especially kitchen towels, stems from a desire to beautify objects that I use everyday. I can’t resist the allure of a new kitchen towel. They’re like catnip!
My original designs are printed, via screen printing or block printing, onto 100% cotton cloth. I print with eco-friendly water-based inks. After the printing process, the fabric is heat set for ink longevity.
Bringing my designs to life, from first sketch to finished object, has been so fulfilling.
The box stories is all about felt and Illustrations. I make Nursery Art, greeting cards, hair accessory, notebooks etc. all handmade from my living room in Brooklyn . I also have a slight obsession for owls :)
Aris Mejías is an award winning actress who also owns and operates her clothing label, Skin Onion.
Aris began her international career in such films as: "Cayo" (2006), "The Caller" (2011), and most notably "Che" (2008), by Steven Soderbergh. Last summer she co-starred alongside Martin Sheen in "The Vessel" by director Julio Quintana and excecutive producer Terrence Malick. October 2017, you may see her as the leading lady, co-starring Pedro Capo in feature film "Sol de Medianoche".
Her clothing label, Skin Onion started in 2012 as a simple experiment, that evolved into a brand.
Aris wanted to see if people responded positively to practical garments that stood the test of time and would easily be modified by the use of accessories or layering.
A patternmaker and tailor, she focused on lasting construction as a means of responsible fashion... less disposable clothing, means less waste at landfills.
Since its humble beginnings, Skin Onion is recently is expanding its ethical garment production through a designer cooperative, Retazos, in Puerto Rico.
A working artist for 16 years, I have always had a knack (ok, an obsession) for "making things". Sewing, macrame, candle-making, cooking was all fun and games. When I discovered Clay in the early 90s, I found my soul.
I attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, pursuing my love of Radio. I began a career that extended into television programming, working for years programming the music for VH1 and then launching and programming VH1 UK.
During my years living in London, I found herself surrounded by a rich history in pottery and tableware design. The British consider ceramics and clay works of fine art . I found myself constantly exposed to wonderful antique and contemporary work. I fell head over heels in love. I knew innately that "following the clay" would lead me to my life's work.
Influenced by Antonio Gaudi, Eva Zeisel, and the NY Skyline, my work looks toward organic shapes, vivid color, and texture for inspiration. My signature “Beady” glaze is tactile and begs to be touched. Don’t take me to a museum. I touch everything. I like to feel things, which is perhaps why i’m drawn to tactile arts, like fiber and clay.
My tableware is hand thrown porcelain, which is extremely strong and durable. My work is made to be used and enjoyed. I want my work to be part of people’s everyday live; that little something that contributes to the uniqueness of one’s surroundings.

Merino are a unique kind of sheep that live high in mountains. Their wool fibers are much finer than ordinary sheep’s wool and are 6 times finer than a human hair. That’s why our blankets feel so soft and will never cause scratching. With Woolly Cloud, you will never feel hot or cold, as Merino Wool naturally adjusts to temperature. Nestle in with the softest blanket your skin will ever love.
WOOLLY CLOUD is handmade with love and care - to make your home even more luxurious.

Rock Dove is currently a small team consisting of me, Carolyn Baccaro, and my husband Mickey Dwyer. Founded in Brooklyn—home of the Rock Dove, aka pigeon— our studio is now located in Beacon, New York, just north of the city in the Hudson Valley. My love affair with copper and rocks began when I learned that copper was the first metal to be used in jewelry making. One of the few elements to occur in nature in its pure, metallic form, our ancestors have adorned themselves in copper since at least 8,700 B.C. I love using this ancient metal to craft unique jewelry using a modern method.
The earth is strange and beautiful. At Rock Dove, we aim to enhance the splendor of natural rocks and minerals by surrounding them in the element of copper.
Electroforming is a metal forming process which uses an electrolyic bath and a low current of electricity to deposit metals onto a conductive surface. Molecule by molecule, we slowly form a copper ring setting around a natural rock or mineral that has been secured to a hand-hammed ring band. Each piece takes 10 to 48 hours to form ensuring that no two pieces are ever the same.
Our jewelry is hand-finished and coated with a natural copper sealant to delay the metal's natural oxidation process. When you put on a handmade ring or pendant from our collection, you’re wearing a small piece of nature, made possible by science.
Yuiitsu is Japanese for "only one". All of my products are one of a kind and cannot be duplicated due to the euphorically natural dying process!

Yuiitsu products are all created using the ancient Japanese pressure dying technique know as SHIBORI. This traditional dying method is complex and tedious in nature but exudes wonderfully unique results.

We started Lymph Candy in anticipation of our son's arrival. We didn't want all of our snuggle sessions to be tainted with synthetic chemicals as he began his journey Earth-side. Pierre has done extensive research on the benefits of a lymphatic system that is able to detoxify properly and how much the proper functioning affects overall health.
We are located in Brooklyn, NY and have been making everything from deodorant & lotion to granola for friends, family & customers for a few years now.
The illustrations displayed in A Duck Amuck are all done by me, Erwin Ong. I draw fish, dinosaurs, birds, and other creatures that have very distinct shapes and patterns. Although I use a computer to assist in finishing some pieces, my work always begins as drawings with ink on paper.
A Duck Amuck was born in 2013 out of my desire to draw things that make people pause, think, and smile. I have loved nature ever since I was a child and I have always been curious to learn more about them. I explore secondhand bookstores to find illustrated books – like those of Charley Harper – to use as inspiration. I have also had a life-long romance with stationery, and this is my chance to be around quality paper all the time!
Sustainability, collaboration and fairness have always informed my life decisions, and A Duck Amuck is no exception: I try to work alongside local vendors and businesses as much as possible in bringing A Duck Amuck’s products to life.
