Fewer, better, lasting goods

 

Frustrated by a world of uniform highstreets, fleeting trends, and mass production in faraway places, we wanted two things: Uncompromising quality and purposeful design. 

And we wanted the transparency of knowing the people, the places and the processes behind the things we buy.

So, we started Waremakers. 

Our mission is to promote a culture of buying fewer, but better, lasting goods. 

We achieve this by providing a unified place to discover thoughtfully designed, durable goods as well as expert guides, stories, and in-depth information about our producers. 

We want people to experience the complete satisfaction that comes with using exceptional quality goods.

 

From the dictionary

waremaker (plural: waremakers). Noun.

A combination of:

ware; a manufactured article offered for sale — often used as a substitute for 'product' when referring to an item where great care has gone into the manufacturing process.

maker; a person, or other entity, that makes something.

Used in combination, waremaker signifies an entity that applies artisanal skills to the making of one or more items that, once completed, will abide by the highest standard (implicit or explicit) for the category to which the item belongs.

 

Said about Waremakers

"An excellent online boutique dedicated to the best-designed and crafted products from around the world."

"Accessories with understated cool. Those who relish informed decision-making will find delight in this site."

"Emphasis on know-how and heritage add to the uniqueness of the new luxury shopping experience."

The people behind Waremakers

Anders Ojgaard
  • Management
  • Anders Ojgaard

Anders Ojgaard is Waremakers' Managing Director and a co-founder.

Anders comes from a background as the founder of the Danish magazine 'Magasinet KBH'. The magazine on design, architecture and urban culture published 57 issues between 2005 and 2010 and won several awards including twice being named Best Danish Magazine of the Year (2007 and 2008).

Later, Anders formed the creative communications agency Protopolis, also in Copenhagen, before moving on to co-founding Waremakers.

When Anders is not working he likes to go running (five marathons so far) and to travel. Of course, when travelling he can't help spending most of his time scouting for new products and producers who do things the Waremakers way.
