Individually, they’re makers. But together, they’re an industry. Pittsburgh is America’s maker foundry, and was built to help you find and connect with the region’s most talented makers.

They make objects that enliven our homes, offices, and all of the spaces we care about. They create accessories that bring us joy and style. And because they do all of this with heart and skill, we treasure their products for a lifetime.

Many of the makers on are featured at Handmade Arcade. You’ll love the offerings from:

Their story is Pittsburgh’s story. There’s something about steel. The strength. The resilience. The undeniable power of resolve that always gets the job done. You could say the same about the people of Pittsburgh. And while that should come as no surprise, it’s never been more true than it is today.

Because while the fire of the Old Industry has gone out – out of that fire, a New Industry has been born.

Pittsburgh is now thriving with aggressively friendly makers of every kind.

Master craftspeople, from woodworkers to ceramicists and metalsmiths. They’re collaborative. Talented beyond measure. Fiercely proud. And ready for the world to see what they’ve long known: that Pittsburgh is America’s maker foundry.
