About Us

Formal Dept. is the design studio of Kate Pugsley and Charlie McArthur. Through their product collaborations with a focus on creative living, they're bridging the gap between illustration and industrial design.

Formal Dept. was founded in Chicago in 2017 with a series of US-produced bags and will expand into new territory soon.
