 Workshop Unknown

WORKSHOP UNKNOWN

Founded in 2010 by partners Shelby DeButts, Joel Holm, and Veronica Rodriguez- the concept behind the company’s work is very simple. Their ideas are a combination of their own personal style, and a fusion of creative ingenuity drawn from their knowledge and background in art, architecture, and design.  A shared passion of creativity, and a strong commitment to expert craftsmanship is what resonates deeply to Workshop Unknown’s core philosophy. The team approaches design from a form meets function standpoint, but a firm belief in impeccable quality, and fine detail in creating a lasting worth is significant.

The company has translated these values into the localized production of custom developed products such as furniture, unique millwork installations, and completely remodeled interior/exterior spaces through use of digital technology. The unyielding search for profound ideas has allowed them to maintain a fresh vision and the ability to grow and assimilate to new and everyday challenges within the built environment. Inspiration is drawn from contemporary art, youth culture, and the everyday way of life in Midwest Nebraska.

Wild Wash Soap Co

WILD WASH SOAP CO

We started making natural soap and skin care products because most of the products available in stores contain ingredients we don't want to put on our skin or into the environment. Ingredients like triclosan, parabens, phthalates, SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) and fragrance oils are just a few of the commonly used synthetic chemicals that we think are of health and environmental concern. Most other soaps also contain palm oil. While palm oil is a natural ingredient, the way it is harvested contributes to deforestation, habit loss and carbon emissions, which is why we choose not to use it.

Our products are made with high quality plant oils and therapeutic grade essential oils. You will never find any fragrance oils, palm oil, or synthetic chemicals in our product.

Wild Wash Soap Co. is a small batch soap and skin care company established in 2014 in Kansas City, MO owned and operated by Sarah Preu.
