House Dogge products are designed, constructed, and sourced to be sustainable and functionally clever. We prioritize comfort, durability, ease of care, and the health of the pet. The simplistic, beautifully handcrafted products are made with dog & people friendly materials. As an added bonus, several of the products can be personalized with the your pet’s name.

For years, House Dogge Owner and Designer, Angela Medlin, was unable to find minimalistic, handcrafted, modern designed dog products that fit beautifully into her home aesthetic. In 2017, she saw an opportunity to create an artisan brand to answer to this missing genre in pet goods. Inspired by her family pup, Wubbi, an Olde English Bulldogge, Angela, re-imagined the look and function of dog toys, dog beds, and other pet accessories. The small batch collection consist of non-toxic veg tan leather toys and accessories, raw denim dog beds, and hand thrown dog bowls. House Dogge can be found in upscale home and lifestyle boutiques across the country. See the website for locations.

We are skateboarders and makers on a mission to give back to skateboarding by reducing its carbon footprint. All MapleXO products are handmade from recycled skateboards by good people in Portland, Oregon USA.

We use traditional power tools to cut, shape, and finish each piece with good old-fashioned handiwork and elbow grease. The front side of each piece reveals the beauty of the raw wood once hidden inside the skateboard. On the back side, we leave the skateboard graphics intact to carry on the look and feel of the piece’s previous life as a skateboard.

Due to the nature of using a unique recycled material, each piece is one-of-a-kind, however product styles stay consistent with shape and form.

Lindsay Holmes is the owner and founder of MapleXO, having pioneered a niche industry, which turns would-be waste into attractive, useful, and sentimental goods and accessories for anyone with a place in their heart for skateboarding. MapleXO builds connection, with each piece telling it’s own unique story.

Made in America from recycled cotton yarn, our soft, cozy, heirloom quality knit decorative throw blankets are inspired by places near and far. They’ll bring adventure to your home and possibly spark some wanderlust. Explore Iceland, Croatia, Spain and the US with us. Let’s go!

Seek & Swoon‘s collection of knit throw blankets was inspired by places, a love of design, home goods, and a two month European sabbatical owner Jala Smith-Huys took with her husband and two young sons during the summer of 2015.

Each knit throw blanket is made in the USA from recycled cotton yarn that’s regenerated from apparel factories’ cutting room floors. This process saves energy and resources while strengthening the resurgence of the US knitting industry. We researched over 100 mills to find one that could support this idea while providing a blanket that will last. We partnered with a second generation, family-owned mill that’s just as committed to comfort, quality, and design as we are.

Wood&Faulk is a designer and manufacturer with the mission of creating the finest and most useful USA made waxed canvas bags, handmade leather accessories and home goods available. Derived from project experiments, countless hours in the workshop and a passion for utility, we create timeless products inspired by our Oregon home and Midwestern roots.

Wood&Faulk is an American designer and manufacturer of travel bags, accessories and lifestyle items headquartered in Portland, Oregon. The name references Woodrow Avenue and Faulkner Street – two roads in Wichita, Kansas where founder, Matt Pierce, honed his skills as a designer, builder and tinkerer. His creative curiosity – to see how things work, take them apart, customize and create new things – led him to start Wood&Faulk, a blog about projects and DIY culture. Wood&Faulk has since developed into a company known for timeless products inspired by its Oregon home and its Midwestern roots.
