The Match Factory is inspired by an old family story about an individual leaving the North ready to set the world on fire but always being drawn back, “Looking for more matches.”
The Match Factory draws from and is supported by a diverse group of people, all brought together by a love of home working to build their own reality in the North as independent creative individuals. We aren't looking for the matches anymore, we have our own Factory!
