The Maker's Collection

I left Friday's Changemakers Ball at the Depot feeling inspired about the humanitarian work the Minneapolis-based American Refugee Committee is doing around the world . . . and really wanting a Hackwith Design House scarf. What a bonus that the purchase supports such a worthy cause.

Rather than stage another silent auction at its annual event, ARC commissioned local designers including Woodchuck, B.T. McElrath, Wind & Willow, Dunn Brothers Coffee, and Spring Finn & Co. to create a custom collection of hand-crafted gifts. The cohesive collection includes journals covered in cypress and eucalyptus wood, a leather clutch, paint-dipped cherry bowls and spoons, and that Hackwith scarf—hand-dyed to create the look of a blue sky.

Now you can shop the exclusive Maker's Collection online—knowing that every purchase invests in Minnesota businesses, and global aid for those who need it most.
