As the design industry evolved so followed production, and they saw the craft of construction move overseas for speed and cost, changing their focus to product engineering and away from the process of making things. On an inspired road trip across America they began discussing the incredible home designs happening right in their backyards by friends and peers, as well as companies who have been around for generations. Noticing a lack of place to find a curated collection of the best of these goods, they set out to create a destination where we can all find American made goods for the home and create an awareness of the abundance of talent and production happening right here at home.
