Our Makers Mark
Maker’s marks are traditionally unobtrusively placed on products as a mark of authenticity and pride.
Often taking the form of a monogram, as abbreviated form that provides useful means of simplifying a long makers name into a symbol that is reproducible at a small scale.
When considering the initials of Fogo Island Workshops — FIW — we were reminded of the International Load Line. This universal symbol, familiar to Fogo Islanders, indicates the depth for safely loading cargo on boats. Our Makers Mark can be found on each of our pieces, reminding us that our designs call to tradition while looking forward.
