Made in America Monday: Udon Noodle Bowl

It's Made in America Monday, where I feature a company that is producing (or selling) products that are made within the United States. Although you can find wonderful things made in other countries, I think sometimes we overlook the craftsmen and products that are being produced just around the corner.

So with the familiar slogan "Think Global, Act Local" in mind, I give you Made in America Monday.

I'm a sucker for fun design. I just bought a pair of these udon noodle bowls that were designed and made in the US by Flavour Design Studio. Don't you just love how the chopsticks perch on the top like that?


From Flavour Design Studio's website: "Flavour Design Studio is an interdisciplinary design company. Since 1999, élan has gained hands-on experience with commercial, interior, and graphic design projects. Along with contract work, Flavour's main focus is on producing contemporary home accessories carried in North America and Europe.

I strive to design products that make people say "why didn't i think of that!" My pieces aim to be clever yet elegant with a strong emphasis on ergonomics and functionality. I believe that the items you choose to surround yourself with should be interesting. They should enable you to strike up a conversation or at least make you smile."

Do you have any suggestions for future Made in America posts? Please provide any thoughts/ideas you might have in the comment section. I'd love to feature the product and give you credit for sending it.
