The 1820 Collection

We’re proud to live and work in the great state of Maine. We’re surrounded and constantly inspired by a rugged practicality that finds beauty in honest simplicity. As an homage to Maine, we created this collection of usable goods marked with the word that has proclaimed our state’s mission since declaring independence in 1820: “Dirigo,” Latin for “I Lead.” Whether you’re a true Mainer, a transplant, a part-timer, or just an admirer, may these goods inspire you to lead your own way and keep Maine in your heart.
