At The Assembly, we revere the process—the crafting of our products and
the story behind each item in our space. We believe that how you consume
a product matters: a small interaction that alone is trivial, but with sum of its
parts becoming a memory, an emotion—an experience. We want our space
to serve as a platform that allows us to work with different artisans and
creatives and to showcase the results. We seek to create a place that is
created by the community, for the community. We invite you to come visit us,
stay a while, and experience what we do.
We consider the social, environmental and economical impact our decisions have
on our local and global community. We believe design, craft and quality in products—when produced responsibly—can enrich lives and better our world. That's why
we focus on sustainable and ethical sourcing by selecting our partners carefully, making sure to establish partnerships with businesses who champion and
practice the same values.
