“Y’all NolaH2O is a family owned business centrally located in New Orleans. We started making the WaterMeter doormats because we love the icon and the Crescent City. People seem to like them and so we make this other great stuff with an emphasis on authenticity and quality. Anyone who’s ever lived in New Orleans recognizes the starry, art-deco design of the city’s water meter lids.
“Designed by Edwin Ford in the early 1920s, the crescent moon and stars became so sought after that people actually used to pilfer them, so much so that for a time the city tried to replace them with plain ones to try to stop the theft. Nevertheless, the 85-year-old design has become an iconic symbol of the city.”
