Felt and Fat Interview for Small Business Saturday
Please watch our Small Business Saturday Marketing Interview with Felt and Fat in Philadelphia.
On this week’s Small Business Saturday, we featured a first-rate, unique, and absolutely beautiful ceramic company, Felt + Fat.
Mac visited Felt + Fat’s studio to talk with the founder, Nate Mell, about how he started his company here in Philadelphia. Mell discusses his background in art, his vision for his ceramics business, and why he named his company Felt+ Fat. And we even got Rufus the dog to hang out with us!
One of the many reasons Felt and Fat is so special is because they make their clay and glazes from raw material. This allows them to create more custom pieces for their clients, whether that be a restaurant seeking a specific product or an individual looking for a special set. These handmade pieces accent people’s homes, make delicious food stand out, and just give you something beautiful to look at.
Felt and Fat was started in 2014, as a small studio focused on creating custom tableware for Philadelphia chefs. Five years later, our wares are in over 140 restaurants in five different countries, as well as thousands of homes.
During that time we’ve grown from a studio into a manufacturer, while maintaining our focus on the relationships that people have with our products. Our tableware is designed to act as a minimalist backdrop, so that our customer’s culinary creativity and experimentation is the focus.
