Model Pic (my best)
A new fan of New York-based Kaufmann Mercantile, I am impressed by the quality of their products.
Their Wool & Salmon Skin House Shoes for Baby are crafted from Patagonian sheep wool and up-cycled tanned salmon leather from the fish industry. (salmon leather?!) Kaufmann states that the fish leather is as soft as suede and provides unscented insulation.
And yes, they have a non-baby sized model as well.
I am also intrigued about their French Wall-Mounted Soap. Made in France and used traditionally in schools and restaurants, the soap is mounted on a refillable chrome-plated holder that keeps it out of those scummy puddles.
My very favorite part about Kaufmann Mercantile is the truly thorough and detailed description of each of their products. You know exactly what each component is made out of, where is comes from and its size and weight.

Let’s talk about my wish list from Best Made Company:
Number one, the Shearling Wool Vest that can be worn inside or out. Best Made Co. states “we field tested it without mercy, and can guarantee that it will outlive you.” Love it.
ShapeMaker Blocks, so charming for me and future babies.
Made in USA Elkskin Chopper Mitts in that quintessential construction Dad yellow.
Love the home goods. I don’t play darts but The Belgian Dart Set could be in my home and I would definitely be okay with it.
