Maderacraft vs Grovemade

5 years ago from , Lead Designer

Just saw the Maderacraft website in my daily feed, and I immediately noticed some extreme similarities between my current Grovemade stand and theirs. Looking at their entire catalogue, it looks they just completely ripped off Grovemade. At a higher price point as well.

Check it out for yourself:

    They both run on Shopify. Are they modified versions of the same free or purchased theme?

      the website similarities are to be expected when you're running a website on top of a service like shopify (and/or when companies use ubiquitous templates to 'create' their websites).

      The bigger issue at hand is how similar (almost exact) Maderacraft's products and product lines are to Grovemade's products, who—to my knowledge—have been established much longer (i have 2 grovemade stands btw)

    From Grovemade's fb page: "...we are blown away by the number of folks who have written to us about this and are looking out for us! ... Unfortunately, there will always be those that are "heavily influenced" by others' designs, but we know that they can't duplicate our team and how we do things. We, at #Grovemade are so fortunate to have this support from all of you! We will continue to bring our A-game! #MadetheHardWay

    Want a company like theirs? Call it "something+made" or "made+something", use an app to rip-off their website (maybe change the copy a little bit), buy in a shit ton of wooden stands from Alibaba and you're all set.

    Unless both of these companies are owned by the same people, someone should get spanked for this.
