What’s special about Making Stories Magazine?
Making Stories Magazine strives to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. They love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support.
They’re (to our knowledge) the only ad-free knitting magazine on the market today. They believe in preserving their independence when it comes to deciding who they feature and work with through not accepting any ads for this magazine.
Printed on 100% recycled paper, one of the few that’s certified not only with the EU Ecolabel and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, but also with the Blauer Engel certificate.
They've kept production and fulfillment as local as possible, working with Druckhaus Berlin-Mitte as their printer, the first printer to be certified with Blauer Engel, and with Urbanmail as their fulfillment and shipping partner, in Berlin.
