Made in the West



West Coast Craft is back for its second year, bringing a bevy of designers, artists and makers — each with aesthetics inspired by the Golden State — together for a weekend of creative appreciation. Here, we ask three of the participating Marin-based companies what the “West Coast lifestyle” means to them when it comes to their craft. westcoastcraft.com


Mineral Workshop

“I like the stories that lie within creative work, so my aim is to have my heart and hands animated by the heartbreak and beauty of the land and all of us upon it — West Coast lifestyle to me is feeling that, and honoring it.” — Carrie Crawford, founder of Mineral Workshop. mineralworkshop.com

Native Textile

“The West Coast is a place where creativity can flourish. There is a sense of lightness, both in nature and in the people, and an opportunity to draw endless inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds us.” — Meghan Bogden Shimek, founder of Native Textile. meghanshimek.com

Winston Made

“West Coast makers are healthy, whimsical, inventive go-getters who won’t take no for an answer and I think that is reflected in the kinds of businesses and products produced here. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and we don’t give up when we feel passionate about something.” — Sam Kraus, founder of Winston Made. winstonmade.com
