Natalie Nicholson and Korina Brewer met at the Fashion Institute of Technology where they were both studying design in 2012. After many years of friendship, it has been our dream to work together to create a network of makers that promote and support one another and our communities. This mission is how Slow Made was born in the fall of 2018. We organized our first event as a holiday pop up shop in Kingston, NY. From the success of that event, we have organized numerous other pop up shops and markets around the Hudson Valley.
Korina works from her studio in Olive, NY where she creates her line of repurposed sailcloth goods, Eighth Belle. Natalie lives and works in Housatonic, MA where she makes her line of handmade and vintage jewelry, N.O.N.. In 2019 we launch our own line of reusable home goods called Slow Made which focuses on sustainability and natural dye. The online shop highlights our new collection of handmade home goods and select items from Eighth Belle and NON.
Slow Made is constantly developing and transforming. We are very excited about what is next and expanding our community of artists!
