Meet The Northern Market at our Ohio Explored Holiday Maker Mart!
The Northern Market caught our eye because of its beautiful yet functional minimalist line of handmade home goods and market bags. Owner, Lindsey Zinno, founded The Northern Market as a teenager. As a young entrepreneur and Environmental Sciences major, Lindsey applies environmental consciousness to her products and everyday life. Every piece by The Northern Market is a unique One-of-a-Kind item! This Cincinnatian is putting the city on the map by being featured in shops around the world!
THE NORTHERN MARKET
I first was drawn to The Northern Market for its succulent simplicity. Her woven work reminded me of woodcut prints and tree rings. So I was especially excited to learn that her products—many made from a single piece of rope—are locally sourced, naturally dyed, and crafted from scrap materials. It's always so inspiring to me to meet with makers who are taking stuff that's already in circulation and transforming it into functional works of art.

Sharing the Craft
Mothers and daughters can lock heads when it comes time to teach sewing. In fact, in many households, the love of sewing skips a generation. But not always. My niece, Lindsey Zinno (daughter of my infamous stitching sister, Marie Zinno), is the proud maker and owner of The Northern Market. Lindsey created NM to provide multi-functional fiber art for the modern home and lifestyle. Her work is sold online and in boutiques across America and Europe. And she started this company at the ripe old age of 17 – yes, SEVENTEEN!

How A UC Student Took Her Love Of Handmade Goods And Turned It Into A Successful Business
Not only is she the founder of The Northern Market, but she’s also 19 years old and a full-time Environmental & Biological Science student at UC.
And this girl is no slacker. Even as a child, she always seemed to be in create mode. From pottery to sewing, she learned it all. Eventually, her creative exploration led her to fiber art, which is now her main focus.
MADE IN CINCINNATI
Lindsey Zinno of The Northern Market — creator of simple, structural and multifunctional fiber art from cotton rope.
At just 19 years old, Lindsey Zinno is juggling a full-time course load studying environmental and biological sciences at the University of Cincinnati with her thriving independent venture, The Northern Market, a beautiful and curated line of minimalist and functional pieces made from cotton rope — everything from coasters, trivets and bread baskets to market totes and backpacks. Although she just started selling her wares last year, she's already hired part-time help and has expanded her market from local shops like Made in Cincinnati and East Walnut Hills' Your Friends & Neighbors to both coasts — California, New York, Maine — and cities in between. She's even started selling overseas, and you can find her bread baskets and trivets in high-end contemporary restaurants including the just-opened Please.

Pick & Mix
Been hunting for plant potting options this week, and I'm digging The Northern Market's rope baskets. (By American indie maker Lindsey Zinno). Would also be good for items and things and sundries.
