A new social enterprise store featuring a cafe and a gift boutique has opened up in downtown Los Angeles. MADE is on the ground floor of the new Downtown Women’s Center and 100% of the proceeds go towards its programs and services in helping to support homeless and low-income women.

Aside from coffee and handmade gifts, the shop will also offer employment opportunities, product development training and community partnerships. Bloomingdale’s offers expert retail advice and design group Project H provide workshops with local artists and designers. Located in a 1920s building, the store was designed by David Magid who created a light and spacious area, taking advantage of the large windows and high ceiling.
