“Great. Really great.”—Tom Ford

“This is one of the few times where the designer has put his money where his mouth is. So many times we [designers] talk about how a job ’should’ be produced, but these guys have invested in it.”—Kit Hinrichs, Studio Hinrichs

“Artifacts are, in a word, stunning. And the company’s back-office functionality (fulfilment, promotions, customer care, marketing) demonstrate smart, savvy, vital ownership that rivals their most seasoned veterans”— Iris Fuller, Fillamento

“I’ve been admiring bits and pieces of [the Artifacts] program since late last year. It’s carried in LA’s most prestigious retail outlets such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Store. It’s a joy to see the whole line. The design is exquisitely crafted and strikes a unique balance of classical and cool.”—Petrula Vrontikis, Vrontikis Design

“We acquired the line when it first debuted and were surprised by how soon customers started asking for it by name. Artifacts has an appeal that rises above conventional demographic measures. It’s retailing at its best and it’s good design—a rare combination.”— Nancy Gross, Walker Arts Center
