Earth Centered, Design Focused
From closet to kitchen, Housework presents the highest quality truly natural home goods and clothing. We value functionality equally to aesthetics and production ethics, and balance a local focus with a global perspective, holding all our products to the same high standards.
Holistic Gift Ideas:
Plastic-Free, Earthen Materials
Conscious consumption is key to minimizing our collective environmental impact. To help you more easily eliminate harmful synthetics from your life, Housework is dedicated to providing a broad selection of safe, natural, durable goods made without plastics, PFAS, or petrochemicals.
Supporting Traditional Craft
We partner with a diversity of traditional craftspeople and mindful makers who share our vision for a slower and more intimate world deeply rooted in earthly connections and heritage techniques which have stood the test of time.
Ethically Made + Sourced
Our goods are made by individual artisans, small family businesses, and craft manufacturers committed to holistic business practices, including upcycling, electricity-free and zero waste production, flexible work environments, as well as providing reliable, well-compensated work.
Clothing You Can Compost
We curate the highest quality natural fiber clothing from designers and artisans locally and around the world.
Style rarely makes such a clear statement.
