Blacksmith Trading Company developed out of a father-son conversation while listening to a guest speaker talk about eating foraged foods in and around the Pacific NW. Hilarious but true.
Our oldest son wanted to build a business he could make money at while going to college, so after a couple of false starts, we started with coffee that he literally sold out of his backpack. We shortly thereafter added tea (back in development), and have since added a few more products with the expansion into high-end men's grooming products.
All of our products are handmade in small batches ensuring quality and encompassing something of a bygone era in our presentation and commitment to excellence.
We aim to make our products last by utilizing safe and natural ingredients, and we intend to grow slowly with expansion into pantry and home goods and with same fierce commitment to creating wares with purpose.
Based in Issaquah, Washington, our family includes a husband, wife 6 kids and a black lab.
