Procured Design is a daily online publication devoted to investigating, appreciating, and promoting contemporary craft and creativity. Founded in 2012 by Houston-based writer Jake Eshelman, the website is informed by his background in paper/printmaking, music, carpentry, leatherwork, and photography. This shared interest in the creative process ensures that each feature is not only carefully curated, but is also presented with insightful commentary.
Much of the content featured on Procured Design stems from face to face interactions shared with artisans throughout the US and abroad. We aim to work directly with esoteric brands, artists, and craftspeople as much as possible to share their passions with the world. Every now and then we receive requests and complimentary products for review, but our features are written solely based on what we find inspiring, well considered, and potentially beneficial to the creative community. (For any questions concerning our policies, please reference our FTC Disclosure.)
Please feel free to get in touch with questions, feedback, or just to say hello. We are also now accepting applications for talented, enthusiastic contributors (writing, photography, graphic design, Illustration, &c). If this is you, send us an email!
