One of a Kind
Through minimalist design and strong craftsmanship, we aim to create products that help our clients connect with and find more meaning in their homes. Our original designs for vessels, utensils, boards and custom furniture are developed with consideration for longevity and durability. Every piece is hand carved, sanded and finished with a lifetime of good use in mind.
Handmade, start to finish
By founder Allison Samuels, who currently works out of her studio in East Williamsburg, NY. Through an upbringing surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains, Samuels cultivated an early appreciation for the natural world. As such, her work emphasizes, and is dictated in part by, the unique properties she observes within raw material itself.
We value products that are consciously-made, in addition to being well-made. We seek to work with the most earth-friendly materials possible, from our wood sourcing to all natural finishes. We aim to keep our footprint small in the studio as well, from bringing our sawdust to local gardens for composting, to working with entirely reclaimed and scrap wood for our utensils and vases.
Our range of packaging products are also sustainably-made, from the biodegradable, cellulose-backed tape we use in the studio to recyclable, heavy duty water-activated paper tape to seal our FSC-certified cardboard boxes. Each item is carefully wrapped first in tissue paper, and then a protective outer layer of thicker grey paper (a blend of newsprint & kraft), both of which are recyclable, naturally biodegradable and made from 100% post-consumer, post-industrial content. We pack our boxes either with scrap paper or 100% biodegradable packing peanuts, which dissolve in water. Since we do our best to give cardboard boxes second (or third) lives, we cover extraneous box markings with recycled kraft stickers, which are recyclable and constructed from 100% post-consumer content paper.
