“Since our earliest days as a company, we have celebrated artisanal initiative, local provenance, and creative entrepreneurialism. With American Made, we honor and support a growing population of those makers who create beautiful and useful products, pioneer new industries, and improve their local communities.”

If you make your business as a quilter, paper crafter, stationer, needleworker or knitter, ceramist, toy maker, basket weaver, sewer, or candlemaker—producing the beautiful items that make up the decorative-arts category—our panel of artisans and creative masterminds wants to hear your story.
Our decorating and style tastemakers are searching for heirloom-quality products we want to live with everyday. From cutting boards and tables to light fixtures and rugs, this category recognizes furniture, tabletop, lighting, garden, outdoor-living, homekeeping, industrial, and textile designers.
Whether you are an artisanal sheep’s-milk cheese maker who gives the French masters a run for their money or a small-batch gin distiller with a winning formula, this category is for you. Our group of chefs and food authorities is on the lookout for game-changing bakers, chefs, farmers, vintners, distillers, canners, jammers, picklers, and others who make our mouths water.
Our trendsetting market editors are seeking out the classics, calling out the newcomers, and basking in the perfect fit and best of beauty. Makers in this category specialize in high-quality accessories, clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, and skin-care products that promise to turn heads and leave their customers looking their best.
