Arkansas has a long and rich tradition of quality craftsmanship stretching back long before we gained statehood in 1836. With Arkansas Made, we’ve acknowledged that foundation of hard work and dedication while bringing together hundreds of artisans working right now to ensure that Arkansas’ reputation as a place where quality, hand-made goods can be found will continue on for years to come.
There’s no feeling quite like the one that comes from seeing a unique piece of art, holding a quality hand-crafted tool or tasting something made with skill and love. We’re very proud of our state and the people who work so hard to produce so many lovely things here, and with Arkansas Made, we’ve made it our mission to tell the world all about the amazing things made right here in the Natural State.
Arkansas Made is a partnership between the Arkansas Times and the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. Everyone involved with this project is excited about Arkansas, and we want everyone who picks up a copy of our print magazine or visits this website to get excited, too.
There’s no better time to be in Arkansas than right now, and that’s thanks in large part to our craftspeople and artists who bring quality and beauty to our world every single day. Arkansas Made would not be possible without them, and we are dedicated to supporting everyone who enriches our state through their hard work, skill and love of quality.
