Y'all know I'm a super duper, eco-friendly bamboo fan. When I first laid eyes on the The ​Rootbox

About the Founders:

The Root Theory was created by two childhood friends with a background in graphic and product design. We combine our everyday experiences to create innovative designs where form follows function. Our vision is to revolutionize everyday essentials for women.

While our lives are enveloped with innovation and technology, we noticed that some of our daily essentials have not evolved with current times, like our makeup bags. We decided to create a smarter makeup organizer that will be easy to clean, organize and highlight our beauty essentials. We started selling our initial designs on Etsy and at local craft fairs. Along the way, we received a lot of support and even feedback to improve our design.

After a year of redesigning, we are very excited to officially launch a more versatile and robust Rootbox on Kickstarter. The funding from Kickstarter will help cover our manufacturing cost, time and materials to continue growing our product line. 

-Dorothy and Thao

I'm a bamboozled fan.
