We make collections of everyday items with a unique attention to detail. All of our items are created in our studios and we work constantly to bring these collections to the ever evolving state they are in. Our work is constantly changing and evolving.

Diatomic particles are the building blocks of life as we know it.  We find this so appealing because in a way, we feel like we take basic building blocks (materials) to create new things to bring into existence.  In addition, we feel our products are truly one of a kind and there are infinite varieties of what we have to offer- we are even discovering new ones all the time just like our counterpart, the Diatom.

At Diatom Design, it is just as much about the process as it is about the end product.  Since everything is handmade, there is a lot of creativity going on in our home studios.  We enjoy our road trips to craft shows and get inspiration from our surroundings.  Thank you for supporting us in this process!


I am Diane.  I am a sew-er and crafter and love to experiment with different fabrics and making new things all the time.  One of my favorite things to do is go to new cities and find cool fabric stores (especially ones in huge warehouses).
