ALIGNING PURPOSE WITH PASSION
We believe that being connected to the people who make your objects adds to their richness and extends their product lifetime. Maker and Place offers one-of-a-kind handcrafted home and lifestyle wares from all over the world.
We aim to bring production into the retail environment by offering open-air studios to local craftspeople and by inviting the customer to take part in the creation process.
