Made By Hand is a Danish design brand with a passion for craftsmanship and timeless refined products – offering a sense of harmony and comfort to everyday life. At Made By Hand, we are inspired by many Scandinavian crafts traditions and styles, – an array of opportunities to develop authentic and durable design products.

All Made By Hand design products are manufactured by local craftspeople – in Denmark and abroad. We celebrate the local cultural experience and expertise for designing and crafting products by hand.

At Made By Hand our design perspective is shaped by our Danish heritage blended with new modern interpretations of design with a straightforward function. We call this the “Made By Hand” project.

Our manifest

The Made By Hand project is our simple manifest for selecting the right design direction, the right designers, and the right design idea, – making sure every new Made By Hand product live up to our design values.

We represent a straightforward design approach with an appreciation of all the small details, the finesse and the quality work that goes into a design made by hand. We believe it makes the experience of the design in everyday life so much more fulfilling and lasting.

We want to make products that creates a better everyday experience in which human beings with family and friends share their thoughts, dreams and daily life experiences.

The Made By Hand Project is all about bringing products to life that makes you feel at home in a comfortable and aesthetic way.

Our take on craftsmanship

Sometimes we look back in time for inspiration and we find classic Danish design with a great story we believe should be introduced to a wider audience, or we start collaboration with new designers sharing the same passion and belief as we do.

We are based in the values of classic craftsmanship, and we are dedicated to unite old techniques and know-how with natural materials enhancing the home experience.

It’s a great inspiration for us to connect with creative people that like to introduce craftsmanship in the context of our time and cultural life.

We are led by a commitment to authenticity in design and every single Made By Hand product should be useful, and function well, in high quality materials shaped with details which are purposeful. Materials are chosen meticulously , and the details in our design is choosen to create a refinement and pleasure in everyday life.
