This project was created from a desire to use our design skills to improve the way of life of people in need. We wanted to use our design skills for good. Our love of crafted goods, ethical practices, and modern art brought us to Marlowe + Co, a company that sells fair trade goods at a fair wage to its workers while elevating the level of design to a modern aesthetic.

There are many existing organizations that hold part of our business model. Either they focus a lot on the stories of their makers and how the organization has improved their way of life or they focus on the high design of their goods and lack the backstory. We wanted to create an organization that paired the two — a blending of the traditional with the modern. Equal parts heart and thoughtful, modern design. 

Designed in collaboration with Gabrielle Goldman.
