You might remember a little something we created for Mother’s Day called Momtage. Well here is Momtage in action! We asked you to upload pictures of your mom when she was young. Christina then used Hatch Compass to find the perfect photo gift to put her picture on and what resulted is a gorgeous necklace and memory that her mom can keep forever.

Learnings from Interviews with Hatch Users

We recently conducted a series of ‘usability tests’ with savvy shoppers browsing and choosing items to buy on Hatch.

Hatch Makes Time Inc.’s Top 10 NYC Startups to Watch for 2014

And we’re not only deeply honored, but still pinching ourselves to make sure it’s real!


It seems like only yesterday that we started Hatch from the couch in Ryan’s West Village apartment. Our mission was to create a different kind of retail experience, a place where you didn’t just have to settle for things that were “good enough.” We wanted Hatch to be the kind of place where you could put you own personal touch on any product you saw (jewelry, home decor, accessories etc.) and have that product made-to-order just for you, resulting in something that is meaningful, creative, and utterly unique.

As a founder, you rarely look up to take in what your team has created because you’re so focused on hitting the next milestone and the one after that, not to mention just surviving. While the road ahead remains long, this moment is a wonderful opportunity to reflect just how far our mighty team of 8 has come along since that time on Ryan’s couch. In just under 2 years, Hatch has become home to 1000 curated makers from 18 different countries and over 3000 customizable products (resulting in over 50,000 unique product combinations) that can be personalized to your heart’s content. We’ve brought together customers and makers who were 10,000 miles apart to create unique, made-to-order items that simply couldn’t be found in a regular store.

Thank you Time Magazine for recognizing our work and giving us a reason to stop and celebrate.


-Anastasia & Ryan, on behalf of the entire Hatch team
