Our motivation to work with Norwegian Made is the pride we feel to be a part of the norwegian cultural heritage. We love to use all the traditional, handcrafted tools we've inherited from our family, to eat from vintage, norwegian earthenware and to dress up in our national costumes. We feel closely connected to the norwegian landscape, history, and natural materials and we want to secure the future of this tradition.
Contemporary economic developement pushes more and more of the traditional, norwegian workshops to produce their goods in low cost countries, and as a consequence, the old handcraft tradition is in danger of being lost. Through Norwegian Made we want to contribute to the continuation of the norwegian handcraft and production. We want to keep tradition alive and at the same time to support the new generation of designers who uses the old crafting methods to produce modern goods.
To achieve this goal, Norwegian Made will publish information about the various handcraft makers and design companies that have chosen to keep all of or a big part of their production in Norway. We will do this on different social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Steller, in addition to on this homepage and blog. To found our project, we will sell Norwegian Made promo products in our own internet store, which we are hoping to launch this fall.
We will visit the workshops, tell you their stories and show you their products. We will explain why norwegian products are quality products and why they are not as inexpensive as other products. We will show you why they are worth the price, and that a product made to last, made with quality materials and made with dedication and love has such high value.
Our highest wish is that you want to support us in our effort by following our travels and our stories.
