CRAFTMOBILE is a unique touring pop-up shop on wheels, selling a curated selection of craft & design objects from designer makers.
Designers/Makers (D/M) is an International Agency for contemporary design and craft who began as a small local market in Hackney Wick, London, back in 2010 and have grown to curate regular selling events,
exhibitions, pop up shops and workshops to support their D/M Members.
As Director Sophie Rees explains, "Through our experience of running events and pop up shops we know first hand how difficult it is to fund such projects and then find the time and money to run them efficiently. Every project we undertake is done to benefit the designers involved, so fees are kept to a minimum whilst trying to uphold the quality of its delivery. This led to a light bulb moment whilst ogling food vans on Pinterest...
CRAFTMOBILE solves the common problems Designers/Makers face when wanting to provide a regular physical outlet to sell their members work. With the CRAFTMOBILE they will take their members work on the road across the UK and Europe to various design and craft lead events, thereby reaching a bigger audience.
The van is a classic, refitted to give a contemporary edge with specialty lighting and crisp branding. All products will be selected for their uniqueness, quality and sold in limited supply to make them extra special.
Custom gift-wrapping will also be offered on-site!
The money raised via their kickstarter campaign will go towards the running of the CRAFTMOBILE - to include the refit, maintenance and insurance, and paying to take part in big and small events such as the London Design Festival.
The website will announce where the Craftmobile will be visiting throughout the year, list the designers taking part, sponsors and funders.
