Where did you get that material/part/thingy?
We source from all over the world, including making exclusive materials and supplies you can't find anywhere else. The response to the materials that we include in each collection was so overwhelming that we opened the shop so we could help people make more things more often. If there is something that you must have but don't see in the store let us know. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to bring it back but we'll try. Often things are vintage or we made in very limited runs.
How do you come up with the ideas for the projects?
We translate runway and street fashion into easy to make projects. We are endlessly inspired by New York and attuned to new materials and supplies available. When we can’t find something we have it made. We hunt out vintage and aren't afraid to use materials in nontraditional ways. We keep our eyes peeled and we only make what we really love.
How do I know what to do with the cool stuff I buy?
We provide easy to follow tutorials for every project. If you’ve got an idea of your own, make it! We also have lots of inspiration over on our blog. We love to see what you create... Use #forthemakers to tag your Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter photos.
