I have always been interested in art and design growing up, originally wanted to become an architect but then found out about industrial design through a high school teacher. During college I noticed the Bungee wallet and thought it was such a unique innovative idea and looked up Umbra for the first time. I was thrilled to see they were a Canadian design company based out of Toronto so I made it my goal to get in and make my mark. I love the fast paced environment here, and it seems that every day is different and always presents a new challenge to solve. It's also exciting to work so closely with such a great team, the entire company seems focused on the same goals, making it a great creative environment for spawning new fresh ideas.

Edit from Dix Hills, NY– Verified Buyer
My kids just love this! It has never been more fun to was hands. It is a little heavy when filled, and I need to hold the bottom to prevent the top coming apart. Other than that I can only recommend.

I try to run as "green" a household as I can, so when I discovered foaming hand soap dispensers about 10 years ago I was really psyched: you use SO much less soap (about 2/3 less) so it's more thrifty/less wasteful and you're putting that much less stuff into the sewer systems or your septic. Also I find the foam (when the dispenser is filled with the correct proportion of soap to water and air) to do a better job for hand washing -- feels like it covers better without having to rinse for 10 minutes, and not as drying on the skin.

I just loved this pump! My husband asked why I needed this and I just could not answer. It is a beautiful piece. I use it in the kitchen and it looks just clean and perfect. Plus it works wonderfully and the fact that it is a foaming pump just makes it even better because it helps save a lot of money in hand soap!
Not enough soap
Jacquelin from Huntington Beach, CA– Verified Buyer
Larger than expected but doesn't hold as much soap as you would think for it's size. It does not dispense quite enough soap into your hand either. Looks nice on the sink though
Tzeni from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer
It looks fantastic but the pump went off after 2 weeks of use.

Cute but broken after 2nd filled
Liny from Mountain View, CA– Verified Buyer
The design is very cute. But mine broke after 2nd filled in the soap water. Not sure if I would purchase another one.
