BRIKA

Toronto-based startup and Extreme Startups Spring 2013 cohort member BRIKA is a sort of Etsy meets Fab company, with the goal of taking the current maker movement and helping it reach a broad and discerning audience.

BRIKA provides provenance for artisan goods; it’s like Etsy, in terms of sourcing its wares from handicrafts makers and independent creators, but it emphasizes the story. That means you know who made what you’re buying, and why they’re driven to do so in the first place; it means you know where the materials came from, and how they were made; it means you’re connected to the goods you purchase, rather than disconnected.
