Tell us about your business.While walking through an abandoned textile mill one afternoon, we visualized the place in its heyday—with machines running, workers bustling about and their voices echoing among the rusting girders. We wanted to reclaim a sense of that determined spirit and remind people about what made this country great. As that dream blossomed the core tenants of our company grew. Our goal is to create handcrafted products from reclaimed materials employing people here in America who want to work but are often overlooked due to certain disabilities. In doing so we wish to stand as a model and resource so that other companies can do the same. We realize that we are doing more than just fashioning a product and as a company we can be an instrument of change and inspiration to our associates and the communities we serve. We believe our values and concerns echo the very essence of our great nation through the products we create and deliver.
What makes your business stand out?We use post industrial reclaimed materials to create handcrafted home decor products. We help to employ people with developmental disabilities here in the USA.
