Waremakers – A Marketplace Curated For The Curious

Wednesday, 24th May, 2017

Waremakers Products

As you know if you’re a regular reader of the blog, I love things which are high quality and carefully made. I love companies which produce products that have high craftsmanship, and you can really appreciate the work which has gone into making each individual item. While I think there’s always a place for inexpensive everyday items, sometimes you want to spend that little bit more on something which is going to last a long time.

Waremakers is a new place to find high quality men’s, women’s and home goods with the message buy less, buy better, and has over 1,500 curated products from 40 independent producers throughout Europe. More and more people are interested in more individual and handmade goods, and have turned to sites like Etsy to get special items. One of the problems with that is you cannot be sure of the quality, with a large variety of indie sellers. Waremakers have a similar aesthetic, however the producers are put through rigorous standards in their manufacturing process, materials and design. Established producers are found which tell a story in detail, and meticulously selects every product. On the site you’ll find everything from classic and traditional items such as vegetable-tanned leather bags from Ireland, to linen flat caps from Sicily.

I have picked out a few products from Waremakers, and this is what caught my eye.

broundal hanklit cable organiser-brown

Hanklit Cable Organiser in Brown

I always use my iPhone headphones with a cable to listen to music, I really love them and haven’t gone to wireless and don’t really want to. We all know the big problem with headphone cables, they’re always a mess. This is the Hanklit Cable Organiser from Broundal, and was designed and made in Denmark. It’s made from dark brown Italian vegetable-tanned leather and will keep your cables tidy, with tan also available. It’s a relatively inexpensive item, and comes in at £9.70. You can buy this here.

paper republic grand voyageur

Grand Voyageur Passport

I love tech, but I am still old school when it comes to writing things down, and I have quite a few writing pads around which can look a bit sloppy at times. The Grand Voyageur Passport is something which will turn a grubby notepad into something stylish, and is perfect if you’re jotting things down on the go. It’s a slim and versatile leather travel notebook handcrafted from fragrant leather tanned using plants, herbs and wood. It’s made by Paper Republic from Austria and can hold your passport and up to three notepad refills. Included is one refill notepad which is made from premium, natural 80gsm paper from Sweden. You can get this black, navy blue, cognac, red and chestnut, with ribbon in either blue, green, orange or red, and comes in at £34.40. You can buy this here.

musette gibus navy blue bag

Musette Gibus Waxy Bag

When it comes to travelling I prefer a bag which has a cross-body strap, which leaves my hands free to hold or carry other things. The Musette Gibus Waxy from Bleu de Chauffe is a really nice casual messenger style bag in navy blue cotton canvas. It comes with a vegetable-tanned leather strap, and has really nice detailing throughout. Designed and made in France, it’s capable of holding an 11″ laptop in the main compartment along with all your essentials. There’s plenty of space and pockets elsewhere, with a zipped inside pocket, two external side pockets and a large secure back pocket. The bag is also available in camel and khaki, and is priced at £188.30. You can buy this here.
