Who we are?

WOMB is an umbrella brand for ecological, ethical and cruelty-free design as well as an editorial for matters that matter. We aim to promote those - products and concepts - that care about what everyday objects are made of, proper compensation for manual work, revolutionary and durable solutions, slow manufacture rather than mass production. We work with small and medium size studios and independent designers, offering products of the best quality, realized in sustainable environments. WOMB is an incubator where potential can grow and ideas can be born. Through our editorial work, we also wish to spark a lively discussion about what is possible in terms of design, production, and manufacture when placed in sustainable context.

The two founders, Kasia and Maria, have been previously involved in the field of contemporary art, which helped them understand the responsibility of the artist’s figure. Design is rarely perceived as art, it is often viewed as far too functional to be assigned artistic value. We think, however, that a designer is an artist, who, apart from an aesthetic thinking, has also a superpower of “owning” materials and ruling mathematical precision. In design, concept meets skill, and that’s what we want to celebrate.
