Very fun stuff, handmade in Los Angeles... 

Made to inspire joy and imagination… At Dodo Studio, we design objects that are fondly familiar yet curiously odd and exciting. Each design is a handmade work of art, a manifestation of careful craftsmanship and fantastic whimsy.   It’s our belief that by embracing joy, you not only gain more of it in your own life, but you also share it more readily with others. This sentiment is instilled into everything we make.

In accordance with our mission to make the world a more joyful place, we subscribe to the following business practices... 

  • Sustainability: We source sustainably produced cotton fabrics and merino wool. Our pillow stuffing is made from 100% recycled polyester. Designs and patterns are produced to eliminate/use scraps that would otherwise be discarded in tradtional manufacturing.  

  • Living Wages: We ethically produce all our goods in Los Angeles, CA ensuring living wages to all craftspeople who make our goods. We support American manufacturing by keeping our production local and thus more environmentally sustainable. 

  • Inclusion: As an LGBQT+ owned business, we are all about inclusion, diversity, and intersectional allyship. 

WHO IS DODO?

 

Dodo is the brainchild of Los Angeles based artist & designer Jack Reed. There is a picture of me at the bottom for added context. ; )

OUR STORY

 

Dodo Studio was born out of the Covid crisis, but probably began when I was a young child with my first box of crayons.  When the 2020 pandemic started, I lost my job designing sets in Hollywood, CA. This adjustment initially began as a letdown, but then I saw an opportunity in the situation... A chance to restart my creative career, doing something that I truly love and believe in... making art and simultaneously bringing more joy into this world. From this mission, Dodo Studio was born.
