Happy 1st Birthday to Kaktos Rose!

April 07, 2017



Well, this dream idea of Kaktos Rose becoming a reality is officially one year old today! Holy Moly! We started out kicking this idea around over some drinks and decided to go for it. With nervous anticipation and a few designs in hand, we headed over to our little booth at Art on Elm in Waco, Texas on April 7, 2016. Since then Kaktos Rose has taken us all over Texas to many different shows as well as into various retail spaces. Additionally, we have shipped our metal products across the world, been featured in various magazines, and have continued to expand our product line!

We can’t thank all of you enough for the support you have given us throughout this adventure because every part of the way you as our customers (and friends!) have been there for us! Starting a business takes grit, but it’s been more fun than we could have ever imagined. To kick off year two of this exciting journey, we want to remind you that our website is now LIVE, and we are offering a birthday special of 30% off with code: BESTYEARYET today through Sunday! Thank you for being a part of our tribe, and we wouldn’t be here without you!

Stay tuned for what’s to come in 2017…


Ashley and Katie

Co-Founders, Kaktos Rose
