We draw inspiration from our community and our physical surroundings. In addition to donating 10% of our net profits to local charities, we operate mentor and internship programs for young adults to ensure that American design and craftsmanship live on. Every raw material also comes from as close to home as possible to support local business and protect the environment. For us, home is the Cracker Factory, a 65,000 square foot turn of the century complex in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Half of the factory is dedicated to our manufacturing facilities while the remainder is used for artistic and community development: gallery and exhibition space, artist studios, and a letterpress printing shop. The community space regularly hosts arts events, live performances and literary events curated by our 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, 3 Stories.
