ARE YOU A PROFIT SEEKING COMPANY?
No we are not. Our main aim is to inspire people to look into heritage of things they are surrounding themselves with. To tell a story of manufacturers, crafters and traditions in a contemporary way. In the future though, we might open a shop along this site to make it easier for you to buy from small makers who do not have large budgets for fancy websites, good photographers and social media managers.
ARE YOU USING AFFILIATE MARKETING?
We do not. All product reviews and guides are completely independent and not sponsored by the makers or companies. Information on this site is based on our personal assessment, fascination and interests. Product reviews are based on personal experiences with things we bought ourselves.
I AM A MAKER BASED IN EUROPE, DO YOU WANT TO WRITE ABOUT MY PRODUCTS?
We are always excited to hear the story of new makers, so please do get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org! Of course, we cannot guarantee that we will feature your product in one of our guides or reviews. It will depend on the type of product and many other factors. But, even if it is not suitable for this website for whatever reason, at least we will give you some other marketing ideas – we are happy to share our marketing skills and knowledge.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
At the moment, we are a team of young professionals based in UK, Portugal, Bulgaria and Ireland. But our team is constantly changing due to changing availability of volunteers and contributors.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ‘EUROPE’?
We do not restrict ‘our patch’ to the European Union, this site showcases products and makers from geographical Europe instead. It does, of course, puts us in an interesting position when we need to consider products from certain countries that are only partly located in Europe, like Russia and Turkey. It is tricky, but we keep it flexible – at the moment, we just look at which part of that country the maker is located before making a decision.
I AM A BLOGGER, CAN I POST MY REVIEW HERE?
We welcome contributions from people who share our values. Let’s just discuss on how your contribution can fit on this site. Especially we love to hear from people who are experts in their special area e.g. wool, piano’s and etc. This project for us is partly valuable because of all those new things we can discover along the way. So yes, you can.
