makemade – Out to Lunch – It’s Acadiana
We often hear people lamenting – mostly politicians – that manufacturing in America has hit an all-time low. The catch-cry you hear frequently repeated is, “we don’t make anything here anymore.” Here in Acadiana we know that’s not true. We make pretty much everything.
On this edition of Out to Lunch Aileen Bennett sits in for Peter Ricchiuti and introduces two people who make things: Alison Bohl Dehart and her husband, Peter.
Alison and Peter makes things individually and together, through their company, Makemade. The wide range of stuff they make includes websites, photographs, movies and children’s toys.
Makemade is 5 years old. Alison and Peter have been working together every day. And they’re still married.
This conversation was recorded over lunch at Cafe Vermilionville.
