About

We are Portland Made

Crafting exceptional products for the common good – we are a local goods collective and resource hub for #PortlandMade brands and makers.

Artisanal Manufacturing

Our Brands

Portland Made members are a growing group of Makers and Manufacturers developing and creating their products in the Portland Metro region.

By producing their products locally, these companies stimulate our local economy and job creation, as well as shine a light on the creative culture of Portland.

Our Team

Portland maker consulting

Jim Hassert

Director // Co-owner

In 2001 Jim accepted a production assistant job at Resource Revival, a small Portland based maker of recycled bicycle part products. Over the next 10 years he became a co-owner and learned everything he could about operating a successful small business. In 2013 he was brought on as Chief Operations Officer at Grovemade, a position he held until diving head first into growing and running Portland Made Collective in 2018. He loves serving Portland’s makers and helping passionate makers succeed.

Sarah Toor

Head of Creative // Co-owner

With a history of creative directing, marketing, graphic design, and photography, Sarah is passionate about communication design and the impact a well-curated message can have. For over a decade she has helped small, local businesses put their best foot forward, bringing her UX and UI skills, problem-solving, and imagination to the table. On a more personal note she enjoys a good puzzle, editing audio and video, and playing improvised piano.
