Garmology podcast: The level collective – With Mark Musgrave (#133)

Get ready for an engaging chat with Mark Musgrave, the creative force behind the ethical micro-brand The Level Collective. They craft robust backpacks, purposeful clothing, and useful tools, blending old-world craftsmanship with a modern minimalist flair—all while championing environmental stewardship.

Mark, a self-professed product design enthusiast, is an accidental entrepreneur juggling numbers while staying true to his design ethos. Collaborating with local artisans, he transforms visions into reality. Amid this, he shares the secret to his success: establishing boundaries for a harmonious work-life balance—a personally sustainable approach to making it all work.
