1- Aligned Ethos; If you do not have a personal stake in purposeful shopping, a working relationship will be difficult to sustain. We handpick companies who insist on making positive changes for people, the planet, or both. If you believe in fair trade and community values, you’re a good contender.
2- Talent: It’s certainly subjective, and we tend to work with all kinds of talented individuals. Essentially, do you produce items we believe our clientele wants?
3- Do not engage in mass production: To put it bluntly, we do not have interest in pieces that are churned out for the masses with little individualization.
4- Handmade a plus: We don’t necessarily require handmade products, but it is represented in our partnerships.
