Grove founders Joe Mansfield and Ken Tomita began their journey in 2009. By chance they happen to have studios across the street from each other. Joe did custom laser engraving and Ken built furniture. It wasn’t long before they realized that they shared a passion for quality products and smart design, Grove had blossomed.
You can certainly see the quality of craftsmanship within each and every one of their products. Their lovely iphone cases are CNC milled from 100% solid blocks of Bamboo, then meticulously filled and sanded by hand. From there they rub on 3 coats of a natural custom blended oil and wax, waiting 8 hours between each coat. The final product is adorned with beautiful custom laser engraving. Production is limited and to make it extra special all of this handiwork is done here in Portland, OR.
We are delighted that they have open their doors for a private WeMake Discovery Workshop and we invite you to come learn about their process, creating such beautiful products for your iphone, ipad, and macbook. Everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to create a custom laser cut bamboo coaster utilizing your own artwork or provided materials.
Space is limited so please be sure to register early!
