A product's story is what rescues it from the assembly line and breathes life into it. It gives the product room to be itself, to be original, and not be stifled by standardization. At Hudson Made, we want to reinvigorate the marketplace with unique items made in the Hudson Valley, where America's very own narrative began.
Our philosophy is a proposition, not one of revolution, but one of return. A return to the roots of America, a time when craftsmanship and quality were valued above machinery and quantity. For us, quality means knowing a product's story, which means knowing the artisan or farmer who crafted it, knowing from where the product came and how far it traveled, and knowing what makes this product unique and how it can enhance your life. We are focused on admiring and preserving these stories, and bringing them to you.
In an effort to support local economies, we favor regionalism and aim to source as many of our products as possible from within 100 miles of the Hudson Valley area, which we call home. There are, however, exceptions to be made for artisans that undoubtedly uphold the Hudson Made values and standards, and we welcome them to join our community.
