Have you ever wondered about the people who made your favorite mug, shirt or chair? In Why Do We Have Things?, Rita Mehta of The American Edit and Erin Husted of Hackwith Design House interview the independent designers, artists, small business owners and creatives behind our favorite things.
Today’s guests are Kelli Murray of Rylee & Cru and Sam Larson of Lone Flag, Other Sons, and Hold. Erin, Kelli, and Sam talk about building separate businesses as a married couple, creating the best product by focusing on the value as opposed to (just) the ethics, the actual process that goes into making products and growing a business, and, why we should all shop a little bit more like our dads.
“Whatever it is you do, work hard and hold it with an open hand, not a clenched fist.”
