WHO WE ARE

Meet the team behind THE KINDCRAFT's global platform for thoughtful, ethical design.


We are designers and storytellers 

Together with our global team of contributors, THE KINDCRAFT publishes a digital magazine and newsletter that explores all areas of the design and making process with original essays, trend reports, interviews, and photography. We also tell the stories behind many of the products we sell in THE KINDCRAFT SHOP, which features limited edition design collaborations and a curated collection of handmade goods and slow fashion. Our work has been profiled by WGSN and Entrepreneur Magazine and we now offer advisory and design services to brands, businesses and groups around the world who, like us, are invested in promoting more ethical design processes and the celebration of cultural heritage.
