Our Story

We’re Jen & Blair Koss. We dream, we love, we accept the world as it is. But we think differently. We want to change the world in significant ways. We’re driven to create smiles, happiness, friendship. We put out the kite of inspiration, the beacon of hope, that burst of goodness that’s just at the horizon. Okay you’re 60 words in…

We’re trying to sell you things. Otherwise this all stops. But we’re dedicated to doing so in the most ethical, positive, earth friendly way. Simply put: In a way that makes our families proud. We promise.

We Believe

MAKING MATTERS

We produce heirloom quality items that brighten your day. This creates value for society. We know that hope and creativity make the future and that’s why our products are made by people who care enough to make great things.

PEOPLE MATTER

The ultimate experience is still the human experience. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, have opportunity, be safe and healthy, and able to contribute their unique talents.

SUSTAINABILITY

We do everything we can to minimize waste.  This means recycling where possible and making things that last. Our products are made with the highest quality parts, engineered for long-life and assembled with excellence.

What Makes Rosie Special?

Rosie’s Workshop started in 2017 and we’re not your typical brand. We have a specific, curated point of view. We also apply the highest standards to design, manufacturing and storytelling. Each product must achieve all three. This is a key differentiator.

Mid-century modern styling plays a big part in Rosie’s playful, cool aesthetic. We design and manufacture each Rosie product based on real vintage objects. That’s because we love the quality, feel, and heft of things made in the early to mid 20th century. Stylish, distinctive items that were built to last honoring the materials they’re made with. Metal. Fabric. Magic. The spark of its maker embedded.

Because of this each Rosie is thoughtfully designed and sourced to be:

  • Functional and useful
  • Iconic and stylish
  • Of heirloom quality
  • Sustainable

Our Inspiration

19 million women nicknamed “Rosie’s” held jobs during World War II in the United States. This was an unheard-of number given we had just escaped the Great Depression. Able body women and older men, including many of Blair & Jen’s relatives, rushed to the factories to do their part helping with the massive worker shortage as men went into the armed services to fight.

Our relatives instilled in us a passion and dedication into sourcing the best quality parts – making products of the highest quality that are timeless and will last for many decades.
