AMiRA jewellery began with a girl who loved to create. Every moment of every day was devoted to making things....paintings, sculptures, necklaces, drawings. Amira uses macrame techniques learned while traveling and volunteering in Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Chile and Uruguay to create unique pieces of body adornment. Amira has recently been snapped up by Anthropologie.
Nathan and his wife Amanda started Anchored Threads late Spring 2013. With Nathan's passion for graphic design, the couple decided to start a company selling t-shirts. They soon realized what started off as a dream was becoming a successful endeavor. With a year in the books, Amanda and Nathan had the itch to grow the business. They started asking "what kind of products are people needing?" They soon realized the need to craft products that were functional, aesthetically pleasing, and built to last...handmade items using the finest leathers and other materials to ensure longevity and a product you will be proud to pass down for generations.

Argentine expats, Tania and Jimena, are both small town gals who wound up in Brooklyn looking for adventure. They both come from families where things were always being made, bread and buttons, scones and scarves, necklaces and neckties.Their inspiration is drawn from the cornucopia of people, art, cement, cars, buildings, parks, and everything that makes a walk or a subway trip around New York a new adventure every day. Delicacies with an enchanting twist in each of them. These pieces are meant to be worn every day, with every outfit, be worn and forgotten about, become your second skin. Flip the coin. CaraCruz.
Finlay & Co. was founded by four friends with an aspiration to draw out people’s individuality by designing eyewear which is unique, desirable and wearable. From their studio in central London, they are committed to design and innovation, to produce eyewear unlike any other.
The friends are inspired by the individual not by the collective. This allows them genuine freedom to create a collection with a difference.
Echo Park-based jewellery designer Kristen Levy got her first taste of design while learning Native American beadwork at the age of 10. Exploring the jewellery boxes of her mother and grandmother, she would rework broken jewellery into pieces for herself.
The current collection's minimalist and modern aesthetic is rooted in nature and draws inspiration from from indigenous reverie, honoring the African Porcupine. Kristen uses their quills to create some of the collection's signature pieces. Porcupines shed their quills naturally, like hair, which are then carefully gathered and cleaned, leaving the animals completely unharmed. Porcupines and their quills represent trust, innocence, invincibility, intelligence, and are symbols of protection from dark spirits.
