Praise from our customers:
"These are such beautiful gifts for both avid music lovers and dabblers alike. They're original and well-crafted; a perfect example of when it's better to buy personal, artist-made, off-the-high-street goods. Kate was super helpful and friendly. Very much recommended :)" -Rose H.

"The package arrived safe and sound and was put together with such awesome design, from the cool tape on the outside of the box to the brown paper inside wrapping around the record dividers. I bought them as a gift for my boyfriend and he couldn't be happier." - Melissa M.

"LOVE love love all my Koeppel stuff, dividers, crates, so chic and smart!" - Paul R. Creative Director, Glamour Magazine 

"My dividers landed this weekend. I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE these things. They are absolutely worth the money and I'm so glad I have them. Ordering was an absolute dream and I highly recommend my fellow music obsessed family pick up some stuff from her shop. You'll dig it!" -Tyr M. 

"I love the record bag, it is really high quality and great looking. Delivery was quick and I was kept up to date. Would definitely recommend the bag." - David H.

“Though deceptively simple in design, the dividers are beautifully made, and as attractive as they are sturdy—built to stand the test of time.” - The Absolute Sound

 "...Let’s call this a proper record bag, an alternative to your fusty old satchel, which marries style and substance, with the added gravitas of being beautifully hand-crafted in San Francisco." -  The Vinyl Factory

 "The physical endeavor of playing a record is part of its beauty, but no one should have to rummage through an unorganized stack of vinyl. These sleek engraved dividers will streamline the process." -  Details

"From the second you unpackage the beautifully designed box the dividers come in, you very quickly realise that this is a product of complete and utter beauty."  -  Hi-fi Choice

"Once you have stuffed your IKEA shelving with records, you probably won’t have a clue where anything is. The classic solution to that is a set of cheap plastic record dividers on which you can scribble the alphabet or music genres, to provide a sense of cataloging. Cheap but messy and definitely tacky. Kate Koeppel is a US-based designer who has launched a collection of restrained, high quality, laser cut wood record dividers as an alternative." -  The Vinyl Factory

 "For those who love records but don’t necessarily love organizing them, Kate Koeppel’s typographic dividers offer a handy, elegant solution that allows collectors to sort their wares alphabetically or by genre. The tabs are handmade from laser-cut wood, and though they aren’t cheap, they are very useful, super-durable, and go a long way to making your prized black discs look like a Serious Record Collection."  -  Pitchfork
