The thing with Black Friday ... is that we don't get it. Inboxes busting with discount codes, encouraging mass consumption and instilling a fear of missing out on a good deal. That doesn't sound like us.
Maker’s Mrkt is an online shop that platforms small makers, creative hustlers and dreamers with bright ideas to an audience that appreciates craft and uniqueness.
So today we'd like to give thanks. To you, for supporting big dreams and to the Makers that create them. We platform over 40 creators on our site and we want to highlight a few of them: their beautiful products, the ideas behind them and appreciate the hard work that goes into the process of bringing these products to life.
Paul and Lydia of Fellows Mobiles handmake each mobile in their studio in Melbourne. The wooden pieces are carved out of a plank, then smoothed, treated and connected. Finding the right balance in each design is a process of trial and error and the finished results can be treasured for years to come.
