WHY THE COLLECTIVE?

We’re always looking for ways to build our community so we’ve partnered with Nest, a nonprofit organization focused on supporting craftspeople to generate workforce inclusivity.

Together we’ll continually select a class of US-based makers to join our collective and give them a platform to sell their small-batch goods on our site, plus enjoy all the great opportunities that come with being a Hometown Hero.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

From professional photography and Team Madewell mentorship, to increased exposure and development grants, there are lots of pros to joining our community of makers.
