Be Original Americas is a campaign devoted to educating and influencing design professionals and manufacturers on the economic and ethical value of authentic design while protecting and investing in its future. Niche is a proud member, joining the fight with over 100 well-known and respected brands. For the third summer in a row, Be Original Americas is hosting a Design Fellowship. Over the course of seven weeks, this year's fellows, Defne Kansu and Janell Leung, have the opportunity to learn about all facets of creating innovative, high-quality products through hands-on, in-the-field learning. On Monday, they spent time at Niche's headquarters and fully immersed themselves in our design operation.
