Tightrope understands the importance of making products in America. Each product is expertly crafted in small batches at their Brooklyn, New York workshop using locally and sustainably sourced materials like hardwood, mild steel, stoneware clay, and hand-blown glass. In an effort to end the throw-away culture, Tightrope takes great pride in the materials used in their pieces. A passion to create long-lasting products from locally sourced sustainable materials is at the heart of Tightrope’s mission. Each material, finish and production technique used in their exceptional product line is extensively researched to ensure sustainability and to minimize the impact on the environment. Every Tightrope product uses eco-friendly finishes such as tung oil for wood, food-grade glazes for ceramics, black patina and paste wax for metal. Tightrope products are vegan, made with sustainable materials, and are often upcycled.
