MATTERIAL is the product brand of MATTER design studio and brand consultancy in Denver, CO. Our product line is created for the enjoyment of designers, and other thinking persons. The principle medium is paper and we create grids, layouts, and aids for system thinking.
Our blank goods include journals and bound tablets (pads) made with rescued paper and reclaimed packaging. (PAPER 2.0) Our OTHER section is full of very limited edition works, often on paper, we hope you like them. These remain part of a 19 year expression and vision of MATTER of our PbD (Printed by Designers) paradigm. They are available in a variety of formats and paper grades we encourage you to test run a variety of our tools.
All of our paper is recycled. Our packaging is entirely reclaimed from existing corrugated packages, Our product is recyclable and re-useable. And lastly, it is not made in China.
Although we're sure some good things are made in China, for us there is a production ethic and in that ethic, we feel we benefit our community by working in a local framework for all labor and resources. This lets us improvise and create limited edition tools, and test new ideas in short order.
Remember, designers work here and make this stuff. So for us—not China, not ever—We hope you can support this.
