Brooklyn & LA based Madesmith is an online shop that features artisans who make limited edition textiles, jewellery, accessories, homeware and other goods with a focus on supporting local makers & craftmanship. they also feature stories on all the producers, sharing their workspaces, what inspires them, keeps them motivated, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work.

We believe in ‘buy less, buy well’. By knowing where our things come from and who makes them, not only do we cherish the things we have, we also become more aware of the environmental impact of our purchases. Through connecting with the makers, we support our local communities and preserve the craftsmanship that becomes part of our everyday culture.

    I love the philosophy of Madesmith!! I think supporting local artisans is very important, eventually they could be our family or friends’ business!
