The Open Company

At a time when quality has become an empty synonym for "expensive" we're here to create truly well-made things and sell them at a reasonable price.

We value transparency, which means every product you can buy from us comes with information about where it was made, and by whom, and out of what materials. We think that everyone has a responsibility to make sure they aren't just filling the world up with disposable junk, so everything we make has to pass the twin tests of physical durability and prolonged usefulness.

Who made it?

The Open Company was founded by Eric Meltzer, pictured here with company cat Mochi and wonderful spouse Shan (left). We're based in SOMA, San Francisco.
