- the story
A Rose Is A Rose Is A Bowl
Watch one sheet of industrial, wool felt blossom before your eyes into endless forms with the help of extra-strong connectors and a little creative folding. Or simply recreate this easy rosebud shape at the snap of its corner magnets for a practical bowl that delights with its take on shape and texture.
Clean design with a whimsical twist feels utterly modern when holding everyday items like keys, mail or jewelry. Its plush wool edges are tough enough to withstand supplies, yet supple enough to play an impromptu pincushion. Industrial wool felt made from 85% factory excess wool and 15% mixed fibers. Handmade in Brooklyn.

Diane Ruengsorn's diverse background informs her current initiative—her socially and environmentally responsible home furnishings company.
After graduating from Smith College, Diane began her career as a writer, covering technology and business trends. Interviewing political leaders and CEOs of Fortune 500 companies gave her great insight into the issues shaping industry and the environment.
Switching to design and receiving a master's degree from Pratt's Design Management Program, she was greatly influenced by her time spent apprenticing for a furniture designer/manufacturer. There, she witnessed the chemicals and materials that workers were exposed to on a daily basis.
She knew that there must be a better way to create products, with people friendly materials and methods that didn't harm people or the environment. Based on this idea, she founded her company and lives and works by the philosophy "live well, live right." She believes that you can have products that not only enhance your life, but also take into account the well being of other people and our planet.
Diane's designs have been featured in New York Magazine, Interior Design, and multiple features in the New York Times.
