Company Profile Request update info.
FRENCH BULL’s debut in January of 2002 marked the return of melamine but with a modern spin. The classic material known for it’s durability and striking color was given a makeover boasting the bold pop culture signature style of designer Jackie Shapiro. After graduating from Parson’s School of Design majoring in fashion, Jackie landed in Italy, working for Milan’s innovative fashion house, Fiorucci. It was here where she began breathing life into familiar images with her graphic style grounded in color and steeped in imagination. A return to New York sparked a freelance career that led to the creation of her own children’s fashion collection, under the “IZZY” label, featured in top stores such as Henri Bendel’s, Saks and Fred Segal.
The idea for French Bull came about by a desire to create homeware products for design conscious consumers at accessible prices. Melamine itself is resistant to high heat, shatterproof, and an ideal ground for pattern. The durability and functionality of the material is perfect for indoor or outdoor entertaining, everyday use and is completely safe for children. The wide range of storage, serving and kitchen items that comprise the French Bull line give you the freedom to create your story. The bold and graphic colors are culled from a uniquely selected palette that can be mixed, matched and tied together with an array of striking solids and patterns. French Bullcontinues to be ahead of the curve in reinterpreting melamine with a fresh look for a modern lifestyle. The line has rejuvenated a classic and functional material in graphic and modern patterns otherwise not available. The French Bull brand’s unique look is also currently available through a series of licensed products worldwide.
