Westfield SF Teams Up with SF Made

711sfmadA new partnership between Westfield San Francisco Centre and SF Made means great things for both the shopping center and local artisans. One gets access to prime retail space and a customer base of over 20-million local, Bay Area and tourist shoppers per year. The other improves its retail mix with unique, fascinating and of-the-moment products that a more traditional retail set-up might not have the flexibility for. Sounds win-win, and for the center’s shoppers, win.

SF Made is a non-profit organization focused on building San Francisco’s economic base by developing a local manufacturing sector that celebrates the eclectic and soulful social environs that embody San Francisco and its people.

One of the early SF Made members to take advantage of the partnership, which gives the group a substantial price break on kiosk space in the center’s highly trafficked second level, is Wildebeest, a pet and lifestyle products company that creates unique pet products that are stylish, functional and uniquely local.

Drip Module is this month’s featured vendor. It creates a limited production of modern minimalist designs for everyday living, including clocks, coffee tables, trays and bowls—inspired by the frozen shape of water droplets. Drip Module’s products are created with manual sculpting and molding, and products are designed and assembled using a rapid prototyping technique that employs injection molding, vacuum forming, laser cutting, 3D printing and CNC. Next month, shoppers will be able to check out Clubfife’s knickers and loungewear designed with clean and modern cuts, elastic-free and created with modal, an ecofriendly material.

“We’re excited to embark on this new partnership between Westfield San Francisco Centre and SF Made which supports entrepreneurship and contributes to local economic growth,” said Shelly Schembre, Westfield San Francisco Centre’s Senior Vice President. “By participating in this program, independent retailers are given a price break while gaining momentous exposure to the shopping centre’s weekly customer base of over 200k+ people.”
