Kids Crafts, LLC. 

#socialgood #womanowned


Holland, Michigan -- est. 2013

In a world where women are still vastly underrepresented, it’s important for girls (and all of us) to know about powerful trailblazing female figures. Kids Crafts™ believes every girl has the power to change the world. To us, crafts are more than beads, paint, or jewels — they’re the tools that inspire girls to embrace their creativity and be whoever they want to be.  We believe that it’s vital for our youngest generation to be exposed to bold women in global history. By sharing the stories of female trailblazers, entrepreneurs, and creators we’re showing the next generation of leaders that anything (and everything!) is possible. More than just a “girl activity”, Kids Crafts™ blends education, entertainment, creativity, and fun into a lifestyle brand for preteens. Kids Crafts™ is a woman-owned small business and social impact is at the heart of what we do. We’re proud to donate a portion of our proceeds to non-profit organizations that empower girls across the globe.

Kids For Culture

#socialgood #notsoldonAmazon #smallbatch #IndigenousOwned #BlackOwned #WomenOwned


Temple Hills, MD -- est. 2020

Hi! We are Kristen and Lamia, an educator and a mommy! Our goal as sisters is to help parents and educators teach children about diversity, self-love, and self-awareness. Our products are created to help children feel good about themselves, their families, and their communities; while also exposing children to differences, unfamiliar things, and experiences beyond their immediate lives. We believe teaching diversity increases cultural competence, which in turn allows children to be empathetic to the experiences of others.


The Landmark Project

#socialgood #notsoldonAmazon

South Carolina - est. 2007

The Landmark Project began as the side hustle at our tee shirt print shop because our small team liked making good designs and spending time hiking, biking, and paddling our local parks. In pure entrepreneurial form, we thought perhaps there could be a way to bring the two together, and a line of state park tees was born. We had no idea that our work would spark fast connections with the people who saw them. We made instant friends, swapped trail stories, and found ourselves in the middle of a kind and conscientious community, dedicated to the healthy practice of taking time outside.

Today we’re dedicated to sustaining a healthy company culture, forging supply chains that live up to good ethical and environmental practices, and learning as much as we can about the challenges we face in being responsible and inclusive outdoor enthusiasts.


Rusted Orange Craftworks Co.

#handmade #womanowned #madeintheusa

Ogden, Utah - est. 2014

When childhood best friends Matt and Joe needed an excuse to have a regular “Man’s Night Out”, Rusted Orange Craftworks Co. was born. Begun as a hobby in Joe's garage, it quickly blossomed into an exciting and challenging business (and a great excuse to buy tools and big machines). Now Matt and Joe's wives, Aubrey and Samantha, also work the business and love supporting and strengthening homes and families across the world. With their shop located in the beautiful mountains of Ogden, Utah, they enjoy making products that families love. They are passionate about helping people love their homes and celebrate the people in them with beautiful, personalized décor. They hope you’ll love it too!

Chicago, IL - est. 2018

Sara Rokicki is the owner and operator of Type League Press. She specializes in ceramic coffee mugs featuring unique, custom and sometimes inappropriate designs-- tailored to your shop! What started in 2013 as a fun side-hustle to pursue her passion of design outside of my 9-5 quickly turned into a full-scale company on Etsy.
