Who We Are

Kaufmann Mercantile is an online shop offering timeless, high-quality products for slow living — alongside a blog featuring how-to guides, maker profiles, and product recommendations to support a more thoughtful lifestyle.

Our carefully curated selection spans from homewares and kitchen tools to outdoor essentials, men’s accessories, and grooming products. We continuously challenge ourselves to discover and share independent brands and craftspeople with our community, focusing on sustainability, functionality, and quality. 

We do the work for you by finding brands that focus on creative, sustainable solutions to everyday needs that you can trust. And we embrace companies that reassure us through their values and craftsmanship so that you can spend more time doing what you love.

What We Believe

We value makers, origin, simplicity, utility, and longevity — all of which we pass along to you through storied objects that are designed to be used everyday. We believe these products are not just a reflection of taste and style — they represent the stories, memories, and communities a person feels a part of. 

Our hope is that these everyday objects will help you feel more connected with your community and the things that bring you joy in life, whether that’s cooking, traveling, gardening, or simply spending time outdoors.
