A GREEN INNOVATIVE WAY TO DRY CLOTH GOODS

At the foot of Mt. Sopris, nestled into the Roaring Fork Valley a 3rd generation woodworker grows a thriving woodworking business that began as a family hobby and led to the start of a company we know as Dryerpods.  Love of woodworking, nature, family and home inspires this environmentally friendly company that is made up of pride and family dedication.  Designed and handcrafted, start to finish by a family owned and operated workshop in the mountains of Colorado, we bring to you a fresh new approach to drying cloth goods energy-free with our eco-friendly, intelligent, stylish, timeless, functional, never before created product- Dryerpods.

DRYERPODS AND HOW THEY WORK FOR YOU

At Dryerpods we know families want to make healthy and sustainable choices in all areas of their lives, especially within their home and for their children.  Our company believes in only the best for our customers and our environment, and that is why we have created a piece of functional furniture that is meticulously handcrafted with the ability to dry your cloth goods with no extra energy.  Dryerpods are eco-dryers, designed to use the heat of your home to dry your cloth goods with numerous benefits. 

A green way to dry your clothing indoors, year round, cost free, created with ecological materials, natural stains, a functional approach, durability and eco-friendliness.

Our Dryerpods use circulating air and the heat of your home to take the moisture out of your clothing and put it back into your home.  You might call it a home and family friendly “humididryer” that dries your cloth goods; an essential to any household that uses in-floor forced-air heat, which is about 50% of homes in the United States. We bring to you a piece of furniture that is not only beautiful, but fully functional to dry your goods in an environmentally conscience way.

OUR STORY

Who are we really?  Picture this: one man, one woman, three children, and one dog, nestled in a home in the mountains of Colorado.  In 2010 we went in search of a dryer system that would dry our cloth goods, especially our little one’s cloth diapers.  So we set to invent and create.  Our cloth diapers needed to be air dried but this process took too long in the colder months and those cloth diapers didn’t look very attractive hanging on the side of the crib or over a shower rod in the bathroom.  Washing cloth diapers every other day needed a better “line dry system”.

We realized we could use the heat of our home for drying by creating something that was both beautifully visually and fine-tuned functionally.  We found that all the products on the market simply didn’t meet this combination.  We knew we needed to turn an idea into a product many families could benefit from. With careful research and design we took this vision to a new level and began testing baby, children and adult clothing and found that Dryerpods were able to dry goods for all ages but the size of the pod needed to be specialized, so we expanded with four different pods.

As master wood workers, designers and builders with an environmental sense, we moved forward on designing, creating and producing Dryerpods for all ages.  We believe in nurturing our family, our goods and our earth.  Our goods are “grown” from the earth with re-useable resources and built with quality to serve a purpose of drying that doesn’t take any additional resources.  You get the same benefits of drying your cloth goods as you do under the sun, but Dryerpods enable you to dry all year long, especially the months you are already heating your home with the use of in-floor forced-air heat.  Dryerpods are an intelligent, stylish, timeless piece of furniture that provides the answer to aestheticism, ecology, and function.
