Manready Mercantile was officially created in November of 2012 by Travis Weaver, a small town guy originally from Zephyr, Texas. They're a small business built on values, honesty, and hard work...that's just how they do things. You combine these traits together and you can't help but to get quality service and products. The goal is to create jobs, help other makers, and support USA made goods.
Travis started by making candles on a stove in his apartment to prove that you don't need a handout or grow up with a silver spoon in your mouth to start a business. The initial business was named Manready Mercantile and was sold through manready.com and to retailers across the U.S. The focus was on all-natural apothecary goods, with everything made in small batches, right in Houston, Texas. Most of the goods are unisex, but great for men...that's the twist. In the past, many of these items were never purchased by men or for men. They felt that by revamping the packaging and branding, they could change that...which is exactly what happened.
They've come a long way in such a short time frame and are proud to be expanding. They've developed a new company, a "dry goods" line, called T.S. Weaver & Co. This entity focuses on wood, leather, and various textiles. Additionally, they started bringing on other quality purveyors to the site to create a one-stop-shop for quality made goods. We know you'll find something there that you can pass down for generations to come.
