Formal Dept. is the design studio of illustrator Kate Pugsley and industrial designer Charlie McArthur. Their product collaborations focus on creative living and everyday useful objects. Formal Dept. launched in 2017 with a series of US-produced bags and has begun to expand into stationery items and ceramics with more projects in the pipeline for 2019 and beyond. We're designing the things we want to have in our lives, and we hope you'll join us.
