We make beautiful things

But don’t just take our word for it...

Believe in
a better way

quality matters

At Practical American, we are re-imagining American Manufacturing as a scaling-up of the Maker Movement. We believe it is possible to design, manufacture, and self-distribute our own products, have it be affordable, and pay living wages to boot. We aim to be an example of innovative, inspirational design, manufactured here, for others to follow.

Makers
& the crowd

We try new things

It all started with a crowdfunding campaign. 2,000 backers got behind PocketMonkey. We rode that momentum to get to retail. We still need the crowd to get new ideas launched, but now we also pay it back. We work with other makers to help bring their products to market. We are breaking down the barriers to get to market. This gets you, the customer, direct access to the best new products made in America.
