Scooping Bowl was designed by Tyler Peoples who is a professional chef. He has designed this go to kitchen product to help at-home chefs create spectacular dishes faster, cleaner, and more effectively. The All-in-one scooping bowl will remove the ingredients with its patent-pending spatula assembly.
In one smooth movement, it will leave the bowl clean and ready to mix up more kitchen magic. No more searching through cluttered kitchen drawers for a rubber spatula that is too clumsy to use anyway. Separate eggs, wash and strain vegetables, or use as a serving bowl where the seal tight spatula will allow you to hold two different creations in the same bowl!
Crafted in lightweight, durable plastic that’s BPA free, the bowl features simple double handles and a built-in contoured spatula.

The Wallet Buckle was created out of necessity by brother duo Trevor and Justin. Trevor always wore belt buckles and never liked carrying his wallet. He frequently took his wallet out of his pocket and started misplacing it. The foundation for the Wallet Buckle was created!
The design and patent process was started and after countless iterations of the product, the brother duo have perfected it!
All Wallet Buckles are finished and embellished right in our offices in Walnut Creek, CA.
Everything started with a Kickstarter campaign gathering almost $45,000 in 2016.
