Bay Area Made: Small Batch & Made to Order

Bay Area Made: Small Batch & Made to Order

This in-person exhibit hosted by Arion Press for SF Design Week showcases the high quality, innovative, and locally made work of 50 of our member companies. The focus of the exhibit is to highlight the benefits of small-batch and made-to-order production, and the conscious choices the participating companies have made that result in products that are better for the user, the community, and the planet.

From the clothes we wear to the food we eat, to the products we use daily, what WE MAKE locally and HOW WE MAKE IT really does matter.
