As an independently owned and operated business, Katrinkles is proud to provide crafters with high quality buttons and tools for their projects. Our goods are made from durable locally sourced hardwoods like cherry and oak and are finished by hand, giving each piece its unique character. From design to production to packaging, all our products are made in house by our small dedicated team, allowing us to maintain our high standards of quality control and attention to detail at every step. You can feel confident that when you use a tool from Katrinkles, you are using something made with the same level of care that you put into the things you make.
We use sustainable woods whenever possible, and try to source our materials locally.
We encourage makers everywhere to be creative by supplying them with unique goods that enhance the joy of making. We are crafters and artisans ourselves, so we know that the right tool can be an inspiration. A thoughtfully designed, well crafted tool facilitates workflow and can reveal new creative pathways. Simply put, our goal is to provide you with the best tools so that you can do your best work.
Katrinkles is committed to equity in the studio and beyond. Your purchases help us pay our workers a living wage, provide company health insurance and contribute to their retirement, as well donate to charities such as the ACLU, Heifer International, Planned Parenthood and the Southern Poverty Law Center, groups that are committed to the kind of social change we want to see in the world.
We aim to support the local and regional economy wherever possible by working with other small businesses in our supply chain. We prioritize working with and supporting locally-owned, women-owned and BIPOC-owned businesses. Our vision of a thriving creative community and economy centers on a diverse and inclusive representation of crafting and crafters.
