Haptic Lab's mission is to craft products that create meaningful, positive connections between people and planet.
In support of our mission, we design heirloom products that are responsibly sourced via small artisan vendors and factories. We prioritize long-term relationships with our vendors and seek to have regular ordering cycles that artisans can depend on. We strive to conduct all our business relationships from a perspective of mutual respect and equity. We seek to minimize our environmental impacts whenever possible, and work with our partners to reduce the use of plastics and unnecessary waste. We aim to use organic, recycled or low-impact materials in our products and design with the future in mind: every quilt we make should be used for generations. We support local and small businesses in our operational purchases whenever possible, in particular MWBE certified businesses that work in underserved communities such as our own neighborhood, Bedford-Stuyvesant.
In 2018, we became a benefit corporation in the state of New York (our first annual report is available here).
