Our History

Dot and Rose is a husband and wife team based out of Pittsburgh, PA.

We moved to Chicago in 2014 together after graduate school. Shortly after moving, we started tinkering out of a one car garage with everything from aquaponic structures to hanging planters. All tinkering and time spent was based on two ideas; the ability to be creative and independent. We wanted to create but also provide function in our creations.

We worked with CPS, Royal Palms Shuffleboard, and other local businesses as our ideas grew and took a more concrete shape. We moved into a large wood shop in 2019 where we honed our skills into mirror cutting and finer carpentry.

In 2020, Nate, our third business partner during this time, stayed in Chicago to teach, while we moved the business home to Pittsburgh, PA.

We are currently working out of a peaceful shop along the Ohio river. Our tinkering has become a passion and our skills have grown into a professional undertaking.

We work side by side creating, building, perfecting, and eventually shipping our work all across the country. We stay driven by a need for creativity and independence. We believe goods made with pride is our contribution to a recreation of the handmade American community.
