The Maker Bazaar is back after a short summer hiatus in Hanko. The store is located on the first floor in Kämp Galleria, easily accessible from both Kluuvikatu and Aleksanterinkatu. Opening hours are Mon-Fri 10–19, Sat 10–17.
The Maker Bazaar is an extension to The Maker Journal. The bazaar expands on the concept of artisanal fashion and makers in a contemporary context through a fresh shopping experience. The Maker Bazaar guarantees that the brands sold through the website have been examined and their supply chains deemed ethical.
The clothing, bags and shoes sold on the bazaar preserve artisanal skills and traditions, whilst modernising those practices. You can research the makers extensively on the platform, as well as be informed about the products through extensive information about materials, production process, dyes and their social impact.
For us, transparency is the first and most important step for the fashion industry. If customers are more aware of the supply chains of their garments, they can make more informed decisions. Knowing and revealing your supply chain is important for makers, as it builds trust and honesty. Find out more about supply chains in product descriptions.
Sustainability stems from the actual making process of the garment. Some makers have sustainable dyeing processes, some have sustainable fibres in their materials and some have sustainable manufacturing processes or all of the above. Customers on our website will find out what is sustainable about the product in the description on The Maker Bazaar.
After transparency and sustainability, quality is important for the longevity of the garment. The products on this website have been carefully curated for the skilled craftsmanship, tailoring and know how behind them, which you can read more about in the description. Quality ensures products won’t be chucked carelessly in the landfill.
