Hand-Shaped Emoji Hooks

Umbra Studio's Playful Wire Clothing Hooks Resemble Popular Hand Icons

— August 31, 2017 — Art & Design
This youthful collection of clothing hooks from Umbra Studio introduces a trio of wire garment hangers that take inspiration from popular hand icons that can be found on the emoji keyboard.

The shapely wire metal hangers boast a titanium finish, with two hooks that may be used to hold up to 10 lbs; this makes the set of hooks ideal for supporting everything from accessories and scarves to coats in areas like the entryway, the bedroom or a bathroom. Although there are many clothing hooks that are designed to be strictly utilitarian, these feel-good hooks promise to uplift the feel of one's home environment with gestures like the peace sign and a thumbs up.
