Boston, MA –  From Concentrate's initial product offerings the Drawing Pod™ and Drawing Pod™ Compact received an overwhelmingly positive reception from retailers, distributors and fellow exhibitors at the National Art Materials Trade Association's annual exhibition and tradeshow.

The Drawing Pod™ rolled art portfolio introduces an altogether different way to carry rolled drawings, plans and artwork. “'Tubes' have become commodity items. They haven't changed much in the past 20 years and little has been done to make them desirable items. After using them ourselves and being faced with their shortcomings, we decided there had to be a better way and worked to create a product that would challenge the notion of what a rolled document case could be.

Our aim is to create products that are appealing both functionally and aesthetically. The Best New Product Award along with the excitement of retailers and distributors over the products is encouraging validation of our approach.
