CRAFT + FOSTER
Craft + Foster is a San Diego-based home fragrance studio founded by Melissa and Chad Burgess.
In the spring of 2015, Melissa, a wife, mother, and military veteran, received a DIY candle-kit for her birthday and quickly fell in love with the candlemaking process. She found that it gave her a creative and therapeutic outlet while juggling the demands of motherhood and processing an on-going journey with PTSD. After signing up for a handful of local maker's markets, Melissa's unique blends, strong fragrant throws, and muted packaging quickly gained the attention of San Diego consumers and retailers alike.
