Jennifer Salta - Unmarked Industries

I founded Unmarked Industries after 8 years of working in corporate design, producing jewelry and accessories for big box brands all over the United States and Europe. It was during these years my eyes were open to the harm fast fashion and mass-produced product has on the environment. At the same time I began to see a shift in priorities of the emerging consumer market. It was no longer enough for a product to be on trend. There was a clear desire for transparency about how/what/where these items were being made and a need to connect with the maker behind them. Since I had already been working with factories over seas for some time. I decided I needed to immerse myself in American manufacturing. As I dug in I found an extraordinary group of artists and makers with a similar mission.Eventually I begin building the brand that would become Unmarked Industries. At UNx we are dedicated to creating beautiful designs using mindful manufacturing. We are committed to minimizing our carbon foot print while growing the makers movement in America. I am proud to say all of our pieces are produced by hand in our New York Shop. However, we know that change in the industry can NOT be achieved alone. Which is why we offer small batch production and development to other designers who share this vision.I am so greatful to be given the opportunity to debut the UNx wholesale jewelry line as an emerging artist at the American Hand Crafted Show this season. I am excited to continue to connect with other artists and buyers who are also doing their part to help shape the future of the industry.
