WHO ARE WE

We are Caitlin and Mike, of MADE IN BUS. While living off grid in our self-renovated school bus, we develop our brand of functional home and personal goods. From tree to what you see, we are part of the whole process of turning WNC trees into one-of-a-kind wooden treasures.

WHY 'MADE IN BUS'

We don't only craft in the bus. The processes behind our unique, "DIY" lifestyle are major influences for our product. Many of the items we sell, we use on a daily basis.
