James and Chelsea started Grain in 2008 in their home, a 100 year old farmhouse where they both lived and worked for many years with their five chickens and small wine making operation, 35 minutes by ferry from Seattle on Bainbridge Island, Washington.
Grain is a design practice dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. Their work unites current manufacturing technologies and age-old craft techniques.
Goods are produced in small batch runs at their island studio or through special collaborations with expert artisans in the US, in the Pacific Northwest or with communities in Guatemala. Grain enhances the traditional skills and lets these artisans, mostly women, to work from home so that they would take care of their family.
Local production reduces carbon emissions related to transport and sustain the local business especially small enterprises. They only use recycled materials made from renewable sources.
