Welcome to Tradlabs

We are a design, fabrication and product firm based in the SODO neighborhood of Seattle WA.

Design

We are first and foremost designers of useful things that people can touch or hold. We incorporate user-centric and scenario-based design approaches to ensure that every design we are involved with - from customer-supplied requirements to the greenfield designs that underlie our own products - is simple, robust and complete.

Fabrication

We are Seattle’s only small-scale, fast-turnaround facility with an in-house waterjet. We’ve delivered high-end custom furniture, augmented reality surgical camera array brackets, robotics, motorcycle parts, sailboat hatch brackets, tiny-house furnishings, musical instrument tuning gear, signs, and much more,

Product

We have a growing direct-to-customer product line of artisanal adventure gear, including our fire-fighting tool (the FROST) and multi-tool hatchet (the ETCH) which we designed from scratch as scenario-drive rescue devices. We also build EDC tools and Throwflakes, our throwing-star-inspired holiday ornaments.
