Catalyst Community member @thegoodsla has a great selection of minimalist, black, leather items to keep you chic and organized. I'm a particular fan of the black leather snowflake coasters, available only during the winter months. 🤟☕️ Great stocking stuffers! Just sayin'... #makeitinla #madeinla #leathergoods #giftguide #guygifts #entrepreneur #smallbusiness #shoplocallosangeles

Check out Catalyst Community member Diana Zheng of @gwanimshop - When she couldn't find modern chinoiserie to use in photographs for her cookbook, "Jia! The Food of Swatow and the Teochew Diaspora," Diana created Gwan-im to give fine china a fresh update. Plates in Gwan-im's California collection feature the non-native plants of the Golden State, the flora and foliage considered quintessentially Californian — but which actually immigrated here long ago. All plates are made of lightweight porcelain, and are dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Use code MILA20 at checkout for 20% off your purchase and enjoy limited-time free domestic shipping.

Heck yes! Here is some Friday inspiration from one of MAKE IT's sponsors @califiafarms. These plant-based drink gurus supply us with juices, nut milks and coffee for all of our events and they are soooo tasty! But also: coffee and whiskey? Yes please. Let's do THIS. Thank you for your support Califia Farms! #Repost @califiafarms ・・・ A caffeinated twist on a classic. Mix up a Cold Brew Old Fashion to ring in the weekend. 👌🥃 #friyay #happyhourtime #madeintheusa #makeitinla #naturalfood #plantbased

MAKE IT IN LA is happy to be working with Catalyst Fellow Lauren Hill of @bellanottelinens , a multi-generational California company that designs, cuts, sews, and dyes locally. Bella Notte's "collections are inspired by fashion—from pipings and pintuckings, to ruffles, ruchings and laces—we find that delicate detailing takes a product from being ordinary to exceptional." #makersgonnamake #catalystfellows #bedroominspo #entrepreneurship #madeintheusa

Our fearless leader Z Holly has a few tricks up her sleeve... Like making the founders of promising businesses get on stage and pitch their products to a full room. It's great practice and a great ice breaker! But we aren't totally evil. There were cocktails involved too. 😬🍸🤣 #catalystfellows #makeitinla #madeinla #manufacturing #startuplife #makermovement

Snap away the waste! That’s what Mylen Yamamoto, one of MAKE IT IN LA’s #catalystfellows, is doing. Featured on Shark Tank, Mylen’s exciting product Cropsticks @cropsticksco , are eco-friendly chopsticks enhancing sanitization with a built-in utensil rest. By using bamboo, a regenerative resource, her chopsticks are reducing forest demolition and eventually being upcycled into bamboo composite materials for home living products. #wemakeitinla #cropsticksco #reuseable #sanitize #gogreen

This is our favorite part if the Catalyst program: Growing and creating a community and movement of ambitious founders by introducing them to like-minded folks. And getting things made in LA, of course! 🚀 #catalystfellows #makeitinla #madeinla #communitybuilding #entrepreneurship

Spotlight on MAKE IT IN LA's Fellow Shah Selbe of @conservify Conservify seeks to empower conservationists and communities by lowering the barriers to entry for effective conservation. Through providing the appropriate platforms, apps, and connected conservation devices, Conservify can democratize the data and action around the protection of a species or reserve. With knowledge gleaned from his explorations, Shah has released a ground breaking project called FieldKit. This open source software and hardware provides individuals with tools to collect and share field-based research data. FieldKit is paving a way for environmental information to be accurately exposed and documented. #conservation #exploration #innovation #technews #makeitinla #catalystfellows
