Made Here

Small is Beautiful, and Local is Good.

“Production from local resources for local needs is the most rational way of economic life.” 
- E.F. Schumacher

We support local craftspeople by producing our goods as close to home as possible.  All Nord Coast products are proudly made in the USA.  As we grow, we will work to bring as much production as possible to the states of the Great Lakes region.  

Ecological Stewardship

We are far from perfect.  Waste and pollution are inherent in the production of all goods.  As we grow, we will continually work to reduce our ecological footprint.  We prioritize natural fibers, and we are working to source local, organic, and (if possible) regeneratively-grown materials.  Through our "Twenty Percent For The Lakes" initiative, we funnel earnings back to the land and communities we call home.  We partner with One Tree Planted to plant a tree after each order.  We also hope that by highlighting how amazing this region is, we will foster an increased love of place in our customers that leads to further conservation. 

"To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster
its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival." 
- Wendell Berry
“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity
belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which
we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
- Aldo Leopold
