Born and raised in Wisconsin, sisters Brianne
Martin and Danielle Harmadi, have lived all
over the country. A few years ago, they both
chose to call North Augusta home. They started
Freshwater Design Co., creating burned-by-hand
wood wall art and small leather accessories. For several years, they sold their products
at arts and craft shows–including the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival. The demand
for their products grew after launching their wholesale program in January 2020. In
2021, they opened up their Studio in downtown Augusta and employ a small team of
women to help create their products and fulfill orders. You can now find Freshwater
products in 600+ retail shops worldwide! This local company has truly gone global.
Freshwater Design Co. Studio + Shop is their one-of-a-kind storefront on Broad Street that creates and sells their handcrafted leather and acrylic goods, along with offering products made by fellow makers / artists / brands they have come to know and love over the years. Their distinctive designs balance witty and pretty, while creating quality handmade goods for everyday use. Come meet this incredible team in person and check out their products.
