About SquidDivision

On Etsy since 2009

Zero Waste Design Handmade in New York City

Squid Division is a statement against a disposable world and a declaration that the objects in ones life should be beautiful, long lasting, and loved. Bright, bold and joyful pieces engage customers to form relationships with these objects that not only define their style but their values. My work rethinks traditional methods of design, allowing the process to begin with material reclamation, transformation, and a counter narrative to fast fashion and conspicuous consumption.

Each object is made by hand by in my Queens based studio employing a bevy of skills. The collections are always based on a limited stream of supplies, allowing for the creation of truly unique items. All items are one or a few of a kind.

The objects created call attention to bigger issues related to waste, resource use, and the need for a more thoughtful sustainable future. This begins with changing the way we make, the way we use, and the way we pass on the things we posses.

Great design does not end with beautiful things. Squid Division is happy to receive requests to repair, recondition and creatively remake any item. Zero waste and strong aesthetics is important from the beginning to end of the process.
