Ümlaut Brooklyn - Their words: "Ümlaut Brooklyn designs have a distinctively outrageous sense of humor that serves as an unexpected counterpoint to gorgeous visuals. Retro and vintage inspired. Bright, Bold & Hip, we combine beautiful and unusual imagery with clever thoughtful writing to express every gamut of emotion.
We bring that same amazing style and wit to our lines of wine (bottle) bags, magnetic notepads, coaster sets, compact mirrors and business card cases. All of our products are produced domestically with sustainable and recycled materials wherever possible."
We here at Slant are so impressed with Ümlaut Brooklyn because the quality of their products match the quality of their images and words!
Trixie & Milo - After working many years for other people, Milo and Trixie decided to chuck it all and move to the north woods to start their own business. One day – after trying, and failing, at many different crazy business ideas – Trixie said, "Why don't we combine three of our favorite things: travel, art and drinking?"
Milo quickly agreed, "Genius!" he said, and TRIXIE & MILO was born!
Trixie & Milo believe that gifts and accessories should be useful, authentic and timeless. With that in mind, the couple founded the company in 2011 to make classic vintage, bold and funny drinking flasks, pill boxes, business card cases, coffee mugs & more.
TRIXIE & MILO is based in the great Pacific Northwest city of Portland, Oregon.

Match Daddy - The Voice In My Head. Say it if you mean it! Feisty sayings combined with elegant, sparkly and fun designs make for a HOT combination. Functional yet an awesome conversation piece.

The brainchild of designer Mitchell Pennell, MATCHDADDY, proves to be a winning combination. His sardonic humor and love for beautiful things apply to an affordable product that everyone needs.
