Why did we start this website and what drives us forward.

We are constantly surrounded by things. And they tend to serve different purposes: to relax, do our job, or look after ourselves. Here we would like to concentrate on things that make you happy, that give you meaning and the ones that help you create moments of appreciation.

Knowing a little about where your things came from, who made them and how it relates to the local community will make a difference in how you look at your surroundings. Made in Europe is about passionate makers, rich history and heritage that is appreciated by many.

It is easy for artisans, small family-run businesses to drown in the noise of today’s digital world. This project started to give you an oasis where you can discover those unique things at your pace – by learning and getting inspired about European heritage and innovation.
