Sweden

Despite his extracurriculars, multi-talented maker Jens Widerberg keeps it simple when it comes to design, drawing heavily from classic Scandinavian minimalism. The Swedish-born designer has a long and ecclectic resume: ranked as Sweden's number two slalom champion in his youth, he later moved south to become a windsurfer. He became Sweden's fastest kite surfer and the tenth fastest worldwide. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jens also funnels his energy (or whatever's left of it) into creating functional items for the home.

Exclusive
Made from
latex rubber
Measurements
Approx. 13" H (adjustable)
Care
Wipe down gently with soap and water to clean.
Notes
Designed to hold a soap case with the bar soap inside, not the soap alone.

Reason for 9 arms (rather than 8):
Each arm is actually the half of one long tube that has a loop in the end. The 9th arm is the other half of the arm that goes up through the head and becomes the attachment loop (for easy hanging). Recommended for indoor use only.

      We have an older home with a small guest shower stall. Limited space for a shower caddy or shower organizers due to the older design of the shower head and soap holder. This was the perfect fit for our guest bathroom! And our guest love it's functionality, nothing slips out of the "arms".

          This is the best product to keep all those shampoo and body soap bottles off the rim of your bath tub and prevent that 'slime' that comes from them sitting there with water underneath them. Very durable to survive a bathroom bused by 2 teenage boys. Holds up to 8 bottles very easily. One of the best products Uncommon Goods sells.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Shower Squids:

              My daughter asked for the shower squid because she thought it was cute. I thought it would solve the problem generated by too many bottles in the shower. Unfortunately, while the squid holds the bottles, the minute you go to use one other bottles start falling out. It created an absolute hazard in the shower and a complete inconvenience. We are back to having bottles everywhere, but at least they are not falling everywhere during a shower. It was expensive for this item and I am so disappointed with it.

                  My boyfriend has a clawfoot tub with an oval overhead shower curtain holder - so there is no place for him to set shampoo, soap, shaving cream. This holds all his bottles, but it's inconvenient for the soap - a bar of soap just slips out, but the soap container has to be opened, then set down, then reinserted. Not the best for soap, but great for everything else.

                        We have an all-glass shower with one short wall. The wall has a ledge which was a catch-all for shampoos, conditioners, liquid soaps, face products, etc. We squeegee the glass after showering, including the ledge. It was a royal pain moving all the bottles and tubes to wipe down the ledge. Now, our shower squid holds everything nicely out of the way. Probably saves at least a minute of squeegee time every shower! And the squid makes it really handy to dispense the various products. Some purchasers have complained that the squid doesn't hold products securely. Please watch the video on the item description page, which shows how to tighten the loops to hold various sizes of bottles/tubes. We have had absolutely no problems with items slipping out of our squid. And it's really a cute item!! I bring friends into my bathroom just to show them my shower squid! Everyone loves it! I am going to buy more and gift them. Thanks, Uncommon Goods!!
