Fewer, better, lasting goods
Frustrated by a world of uniform highstreets, fleeting trends, and mass production in faraway places, we wanted two things: Uncompromising quality and purposeful design.
And we wanted the transparency of knowing the people, the places and the processes behind the things we buy.
So, we started Waremakers.
Our mission is to promote a culture of buying fewer, but better, lasting goods.
We achieve this by providing a unified place to discover thoughtfully designed, durable goods as well as expert guides, stories, and in-depth information about our producers.
We want people to experience the complete satisfaction that comes with using exceptional quality goods.
