Shwood‘s MAKERS series is a refreshing break from the guardedness of capitalism that seems to dominate the industry. “MAKERS” lets the creatives behind small, independent companies explain what encourages them to make such beautiful work. This episode features Beam & Anchor, a leather goods and accessories brand based out of Portland, Oregon. The brand works out of what is essentially a large-scale creative studio, and is run by a small team that forms a family of inspiration. MAKERS sat down with Beam & Anchor to discuss their drive, passions, and the myriad great things about working with a small company.
