Grain is a practice dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. Our work unites current manufacturing technologies and age-old craft techniques. Goods are produced in small batch runs at our island studio or through special collaborations with expert artisans in the US and abroad.
As a full service design consultancy and studio, we offer expertise in research, strategy and design for companies interested in uniting sustainability and business through design. Our clients include companies such as Design Within Reach, Blu Homes, Trina Turk, and Anthropologie.
In 2008, we began to design and produce a line of in-house products for wholesale and retail markets that are created as sustainably as possible in the Pacific Northwest or in collaboration with artisan communities in Guatemala. Our first product, Ty, a recyclable shower curtain that does not off-gas, remains our best selling design to date and is available from retailers throughout North America, Europe and Australia.
As committed members of 1% For The Planet, one percent of our annual revenue goes back to environmental non-profits such as the Surfrider Foundation, Organic Seed Alliance, PCC Farmland Trust, The Nature Conservancy and National Park Foundation.
We are co-organizers of JOIN: Design Seattle and associate members of the American Design Club. Please see our ethical policy for more details.
Our designs are sold in over 100 shops across the US and abroad and have been published in a wide variety of magazines and blogs. Please see our store locator and press page for more information.
