Products and Services:
Anthology is a paper and gift shop featuring handmade goods by over 100 local and independent artists from Madison and beyond. The shop offers greeting cards, boxed notes, art prints, decorative wrap, rubber stamps, washi tape, how-to books, craft kits, Wisconsin-themed goods, and political pins. More recently we have created our own designs that have been printed onto t-shirts, tea towels, tote bags and baby onesies. Original designs are also found on vinyl stickers, pint glasses and wooden holiday ornaments. Anthology was featured in The New York Times 36 Hours guidebook among other unique Madison destinations.
Philosophy:
We want our customers to be inspired by handmade creations and empowered to make something themselves. We provide a highly visible venue for local independent crafters to sell their work and recirculate their money back into the community. Rather than await a cargo container from overseas we can make merchandise right at the shop and ask our artists to drop off more work the next time they are in the neighborhood. Many of our crafters like to buy from each other and shop local thrift stores for their raw materials. We encourage customers to spend a whole day downtown enjoying local landmarks, museums, restaurants and shops. We hope people will experience the same creative energy that has inspired us for a decade!
History:
Sisters Laura and Sachi Komai grew up in Madison and opened Anthology in March of 2008 in order to showcase local handmade goods and provide a creativity lab on a burgeoning arts block. We have both taken numerous workshops and classes in drawing, printmaking, bookmaking and collage and are happy to share our crafty ideas.
