Our Story

Shae Hong is a wellness-obsessed home cook who revolutionized the kitchenware category at 25 years old when he founded Made by Gather®, a portfolio of kitchenware brands built on the principles of design, accessibility, and innovation. 


Known for being in tune with the modern consumer, he started with Bella®, the first appliance brand to bring fashion to the countertop. Harnessing the company’s ability to capitalize on contemporary trends, he continued to grow Made by Gather® on the belief that kitchen essentials should inspire creativity and serve more than a utilitarian purpose, leading to collaborative projects with notables like Drew Barrymore and Ghetto Gastro and further building his portfolio of coveted brands with Beautiful™ and CRUX®.
