In the summer of 2014, over 100 Seattle-based producers and manufacturers gathered alongside city, state, and allied non-profit orgs, to see how we could work together to grow our businesses, and help make Seattle a fantastic place to work and live.

Seattle Made is now a collaboration of over seven hundred urban manufacturers and producers—makers of everything from chocolate to kimchi, bicycles to biodiesel, and jewelry to jam—coming together to ‘make it’ in Seattle.

These creators and entrepreneurs strengthen our local economy and our communities, provide meaningful living wage jobs, and contribute so much to Seattle’s independent and innovative culture. 

Support your local maker and small businesses whenever you can, and help us keep Seattle, Seattle!

Our Purpose

The mission of Seattle Made is to grow and support a diverse ecosystem of urban manufacturers and producers that expand opportunities for local ownership and meaningful employment, build our region’s long-term resiliency, and celebrate Seattle’s unique cultural identity.

We Are Seattle Made
