About The Arc

The Arc is a collection of refined handmade goods and carefully selected objects from around the globe. Founded in 2017 by Tiffany Payne Malkin in Los Angeles, The Arc’s main aim is to bridge the gap between handcrafted methods of production and polished design. With a focus on interpersonal partnerships, The Arc has intentionally chosen majority of its goods created from female designers, makers, and entrepreneurs who span the globe from Japan to Rwanda to Maine. The Arc prizes the slight variations in each handcrafted and found object, finding beauty and richness in the imperfections and in the stories the objects tell.
