    This is such an incredibly thoughtful company! I have been looking for something like this for my mom for about ten years. She was so excited to open an unexpected gift like this. Thank you, Curvd, my mom loves this and the product exceeds my expectations! Will definitely order again.

    Love the mission of this brand a lot! I was particularly impressed with the quality once I received the mug. It’s my go-to mug every day now :-) can’t wait to see what other designs there will be!

About Curvd

Sales 6
On Etsy since 2020

Two friends in Brooklyn NY started to design 3D printable solutions for the everyday struggles of those with disabilities. They realized the problem lies in the design of objects around us and not people’s visible or hidden disabilities.

In 2017, Amin and Jed started a project called Blue Heart Hero. They shared their designs for free with the world. One day in a cafe in Manhattan, Amin decides to redesign a popular everyday product that we all use and make it accessible to those under-represented groups.

The mug! “What if we design a familiar-looking, modern, ergonomic, customizable mug, that fits all hands regardless of their capabilities?” - Amin asked Jed in 2019.

1 year of research, 100 ideas, 50 3d printed prototypes, and 1 final design.
They made 250 handmade mugs sent to friends, families, and those with disabilities. The feedback was overwhelming. Everyone loved it for a different reason: “I can hug my mug”, “My arthritis hand can hold it”, “What a comfortable firm grip”, "My cafe can serve a wider audience with this",...

The Human Friendly mug becomes one of the Top 100 Designs of the Innovation Magazine in 2021, and was featured in Yanko Design as a “product that changes the status quo and breaks the bias.” Amin and Jed started reimagining other products: dishware, towels, underwear, furniture, beauty products, and more.

Jed and Amin love creating impact-driven products. They continue their open-source designs at their non-profit Blue Heart Hero and design everyday products at CURVD® for a more inclusive world.

They dream of empowering the lives of the +1 billion disabled people through inclusive design.

Why a mug?

After reviewing numerous products, we realized the gift shop mug is the perfect product to start with. Read more about it here.

What is your story?

We started with Blue Heart Hero, a 3D printable assistive device company in Brooklyn, that was created to help those with limb differences and disabilities. However, we realized that the problem lies in the design of certain products, not the people. This led us to create CURVD®, a company that was inspired by Blue Heart Hero but would focus on creating products for everyone regardless of limb differences.

Why do I need a CURVD® mug?

The design of the mug transfers the weight of the drink to your arm rather than your finger joints. After some time you will no longer enjoy using the other mugs!
