About Felt+Fat Founded in 2013 from an organic design collaboration, today Felt+Fat is known for experimentation and innovation in ceramic tableware and home accessories. Our team is dedicated to excellence in domestic manufacturing and building a space that encourages empathy, learning, experimentation and growth – giving staff the opportunity to lead their own projects and take pride in the work they do. The Felt+Fat studio was born and continues today in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA. Like many ‘rust belt’ communities, this poverty stricken area was once a dense manufacturing center with a thriving middle class. As we move into the next chapter of our story, we are excited to build a world class ceramic factory that helps to change the narrative of our home while providing opportunity, joy and beauty to our neighborhood.
