About LauraLe Wunsch
In 2011 LauraLe discovered a love of another type of creative collaboration; furniture making and specifically working with makers using reclaimed materials. Falling in love with that creative process and realizing there is a great pool of talented makers in her own area, who struggle to get their work out into the world, largely in part because they don't have a producer to help bring the work together and to light. When a search for a reclaimed fabric eventually led her to a local fire station, LauraLe was introduced to just how many colors fire hose comes in, its inherent characteristics and incredible durability and nostalgia. Upon learning that approximately 90% of this indestructible material ends up in landfill, once it's deemed unsafe safe for fighting fires, LauraLe couldn't put it down. She decided to share this great resource with the local artisans she'd begun to know and collaborate to create exclusive designs with a heroic past.
