Be Home was founded in 2007 by 2 Belgians living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their vision was very simple: to introduce handmade, ecologically friendly, and responsibly-produced products with a very natural and simple aesthetic to the American market.
Today, they are proud to develop new products each season that fit within this vision. They are always on the lookout for new sustainable materials, and creative and beautiful ways to use them.
They are a socially responsible company, dedicated to the principles of fair trade and equal opportunity. They work with family-run businesses, cooperatives and those that treat their workers fairly and with respect. They maintain close and personal relationships with all of their vendors, and ensure compliance with their standards by making frequent visits to their suppliers.
Be Home prides itself on offering items that are made from reclaimed materials, such as teak left over from the logging industry, glassware made from recycled cola bottles, candle votives made from repurposed recycled glass bottles, and mango wood and olive wood that has been ecologically harvested from dried-out plantation trees.
All of their items are hand-made, making each one unique. For this reason, no two products look exactly the same.
