Here you see the sun lit gift shop in the foyer of Badger's headquarters. Underneath this picture are the many gems on display in their show room.
Overwhelmingly, I was impressed by the quality of the products and the quality of the people that I met on my visit. The products are top quality, carefully made, carefully researched and carefully produced. All of the details that go into each finished product are a group effort.
Experiencing the group at Badger was part of what excites me about this brand. I could have spent a lot longer than a day and a half talking to them. The Badger employees are motivated, happy, passionate, and well taken care of. I had the impression that I had come across a garden, where the products grew out of the labor and love that the Badger folks put into them.
I don't think I was too far off :) What is your favorite Badger product? Which would you like to know more about? For more pictures and a chance to ask questions, please click *here* to be taken to our blog.
