-- HOUSTON, T.X. - Aug. 21, 2012 — Modmade Goods, a lifestyle brand committed to supporting artisans and indie labels within the United States announced the launch of its online shopping destination modmadegoods.com, yesterday. All the products available online are hand-crafted by artisans in the United States and are made from creativity and passion. ModMade Goods is the ultimate online resource for the “Mod” lifestyle; a term coined by the founders of the company. When browsing online, you will immediately be drawn into an open feeling where home goods, fashion and paper goods reside. The site also features a ModMade lookbook, magazine and blog, with the opportunity to explore ModMade Goods’ many social media sites where you will find visual inspiration for every aspect of your life.
As ModMade continues to grow its brand and customer base, we believe it’s important to have one place for our customers to find the very best goods to match their lifestyle and needs. And to make this experience more rewarding, we have curated handcrafted goods made within the USA. Personal choice guides our products, and it is also what we are looking to bring to the online shopping experience,"
says Karee Laing, CEO and Founder. "We realize that goods that are handcrafted in the USA gives us the best of everything: quality, craftsmanship, stimulation for change, support and uniqueness. Rather than purchasing brands from other countries, ModMade believes in purchasing from artisans close to home.”
When asked about her inspiration for launching the brand, Karee notes, “ModMade started from a love for all things vintage and handmade. After searching online for hours for a store or a site that offered a curated collection of handcrafted items that were made in the USA, with an affordable price point and that we also loved the aesthetics, we realized it was virtually impossible. Seriously, the more we searched the more we were disappointed and so ModMade became a concept, which then took on a life of its own. Our goal is to create a business that makes modern, handmade goods that are both chic and affordable and made in the USA.”
The concept for ModMade Goods started in 2011 and was the result of a love and fascinations with all things vintage and modern. The collection comprises of creatively designed, high-quality, modern and handmade goods and objects that are all made within the USA. The company strives to be a lifestyle brand that encompasses many cultures, self-expression and a love of handcrafted goods. The collection includes many categories of goods – jewelry, accessories, home goods, spa goods, and paper goods. In the spirit of empowering artisans who inspired the creation of ModMade, a portion of every online order will be donated to a local charity.
