Historically, the Dogpatch has been a working-class neighborhood, largely due to its proximity to large shipyards and steel mills. But recently the Dogpatch has flourished as an up-and-coming neighborhood thanks to artists who have made it the center of San Francisco’s maker movement by creating high-quality handcrafted goods and products.
