About Dorai

Our Mission

We have become accustomed to home products that sacrifice functionality or style. At Dorai, we created the best of both worlds, combining chic, sophisticated designs with sustainable, eco-friendly materials.

Dorai products are made from Diomat®, our instant-drying technology that combines the moisture-banishing properties of diatomaceous earth with recycled paper fibers—a natural, eco-friendly way to prevent mold. 

Created by designers and problem solvers with an aversion to dirty environments, Dorai helps homes stay cleaner with natural, stylish solutions.

Meet Founders Jason & Kelsey

Jason and Kelsey, a couple devoted to a natural, stress-free lifestyle, had a realization that most homes are filled with bacteria-rich housewares that create a toxic environment.

While technology has dramatically changed since 1950, many of our household products haven’t adapted to the times. Jason and Kelsey decided it was time for a modern solution.

Jason, an innovative problem solver with an extensive background in product design, was intrigued when he discovered the properties of diatomaceous earth. Kelsey, a brand strategy expert passionate about easy-to-use, high-quality products, began researching this remarkable material and was blown away by its capabilities. Their journey of bringing healthy, sustainable, and chic products to the home began—and they haven’t looked back.

Our Story

2018 | It Started with a magical mat

In 2018, after researching, designing, and building prototypes, the Dorai Bath Stone™ was born. The concept swiftly drew support, captivating the attention of those craving sophisticated, natural alternatives to household products. People were fascinated by the bath mat’s capability to expel moisture so rapidly. 

Jason and Kelsey raised nearly $70,000 on their first Kickstarter campaign, allowing them to begin production in October 2018— less than a year from the inception of the original idea.

2018-2019 | Thinking Big

Kelsey and Jason’s dynamic and visionary ideas extended from the bathroom to the kitchen. After the success of the Dorai Bath Stone™, the team debuted a set of nature-inspired river-rock coasters. In 2019, they launched the Dorai Kitchen Collection that reinvented home staples like the dish rack and dish pad.

2019 | Growing the Kitchen Collection

The innovative kitchen and bathroom products that Kelsey and Jason created demonstrated how thoughtful design can be paired with superior, eco-friendly materials to reinvent household staples. They rounded out the Kitchen Collection with an understated customer favorite, the Sink Caddy.
