Founded in 2017, Pouch is a New York-based furniture design company in the business of reconceptualizing comfort. In collaboration with artisans in Chalate, El Salvador, the Pouch design collective consists of New York-based artisans and designers contributing their craft and creative perspectives to a common platform.
