Kettle & Brine
Founder and creative director Tarica Navarro and co-founder Alex Navarro launched Kettle & Brine out of their desire to live more thoughtfully through the objects that we chose to surround ourselves with on a daily basis. They aim to foster a connection between people and the process of creating a wholesome meal through good products that withstand the test of time.
