About dale & blue

Serious home people

dale & blue makes luxury goods for home and life aiming to connect the heritage of our family with yours.

Founded with a simple philosophy: People over things.

We love things; it’s why we make them. But that should never come at the expense of the people who make them or the environment. With every decision we consider the deeper impact and make the best choice with those values in mind. Concentrating on craftsmanship and design we create heirloom products to last generations.

All pieces are designed, dyed, cut and sewn in our studio in Detroit Michigan.

About ME!

Why dale and blue?

 The company is named after my Grandfathers. Dale Jennings was my mom’s dad and Robert (Blue) Hylant was my dad’s dad. His nickname was Blue because he was such a huge Michigan fan and University of Michigan is my alma mater too! (GO BLUE) The name and company ethos pays tribute to all hardworking women and men who have ever tried to build something for themselves instead of following the status quo.

 Favorite Things…

 Coffee (black and strong), can’t and won’t start my day without it! A great charcuterie board and by great, I mean any combination or meat and cheese and crackers. Northern Michigan and specifically Forest Beach, cozy blankets and chunky knit scarves.

 When I’m not working I’m most likely…

 Watching all of food or crime shows on Netflix. Reading, napping or really any activity you can do from my bed. Oh, and caring for the 127 house plants I currently have in my apartment.
