The New Soma Filter

The Soma Filter 2.0 was developed with our customers and mission in mind. We believe that everyone deserves the right to clean drinking water, so we designed the next filter generation certified better.

The Soma filter turns ordinary tap water into fresh, filtered water, and effectively reduces unwanted contaminants like chlorine, mercury, copper and more.  

We also utilize a cutting edge plant-based (sugar cane) process that results in an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. For each ton of our filter casing produced, more than 2.15 metric tons of CO2 are removed from the atmosphere. That is equivalent to driving 5,153 miles in an average passenger vehicle!

Raise Your Glass – Introducing the World’s Most Beautiful and Sustainable Water Bottle

Continuing our mission to hydrate the world with innovative and sustainable hydration products, today we’re proud to announce the official launch of the Soma Bottle.

After years of extensive research and design, we created the Soma Bottle to make on-the-go hydration stylish, healthy and sustainable. The Soma Bottle is made with only three components: a lightweight and durable BPA-free borosilicate glass, a sleek and protective BPA-free silicone hand grip and an elegant leak-proof cap made from bamboo, a renewable resource.

We wanted to give you the same Soma experience when you’re on-the-go as we do with Soma Carafe, Pitchers. The Soma Bottle is a lifestyle accessory in itself. Our bottles not only spark conversation for their minimalist design, but also deliver on quality materials, performance and functionality.

Like our other products, the Soma Bottle includes a charitable donation for every unit purchased. To date Soma has provided 8,600 people across seven different countries clean water through our partnership with charity: water.

The Soma Bottle is available for purchase at in four attractive colors: eggplant, mint, grey and white.


International Yoga Day

In appreciation of International Yoga Day, we teamed up with a few like-minded brands to teach a free hot-yoga class for San Francisco locals. 

I have been a part of the Soma team since the beginning of our journey, and I've been fortunate enough to teach yoga in my spare time at Core Power Yoga. 

In the spirit of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, I wanted to share my best advice on making healthy choices with the Soma community. 

6 Tips on Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle 

When I am about to make a choice in my day-to-day, I try to mantra out the following:

  1. Eat mostly plant-based foods - Go for green juices, fruits, kale, and veggies. 
  2. Listen to your body - Listen - Are you full? Fatigued? Listen to your body -- it likes to talk to you. 
  3. Drink more water -  Hydration is key to great skin, hair, and feeling alive. 
  4. Get your heart rate up daily - Move. Walk. Wake up to some Sun Salutations. 
  5. Consume meat sparingly & be conscious of protein - Our ancestors did not chase down deer every day, so I'd assume it isn't too great for our gut to eat meat at every meal. But, make sure to consume complete proteins. 
  6. Cheat day is crucial - Don't skip out on the dark chocolate or froyo all the time, you'll just overindulge later. 

And finally, slow down and enjoy every experience. Take in the people around you, the food, and the culture you foster through every experience.

It's the community that we cultivate that will turn us inward to be more conscious in our day-to-day. 

Do what makes you feel good, and stop doing what makes you feel bad. It's that simple.

Designer Spotlight: An Interview with Graf & Lantz

About Graf & Lantz

Graf & Lantz is a Los Angeles based design studio that reinterprets traditional but luxe materials into modern, minimalist men's & women's bags, home and small accessories. Featuring mainly German merino wool felt, leather and canvas textiles Graf & Lantz creates functional lifestyle pieces that embrace form, style and accessibility. For more information on the brand please visit their website

SOMA and Graf & Lantz collaborated on an exclusive set of 4 coasters with a special SOMA trivet that is available here in black and grey.

Graf & Lantz produce all of their goods in house in their own studio & factory out of a converted market space in Los Angeles, CA. Keeping their operations vertical they are able to closely monitor the quality, production and artisans for the finest execution of their design possible. 

We stopped by the Graf & Lantz headquarters recently...


Why did you start Graf & Lantz?

We are both extremely independent, curious, and adventurous people who like to create things. A couple of years ago we started making products out of felt. At the time out of our living room. We started selling and it just evolved naturally, like all the best things in life. Now with our own factory in Silverlake we can concentrate on the design process which is our favorite part. 


What is your design philosophy?

Less is more, materials are funner when they’re mixed, timelessness is better than trend, form loves function. Yes, we know its cliche but we live by it.     

Why do you use felt as a core material in your products?

Daniel:  When Holger showed me the felt from Germany for the first time it was absolutely new for me. I was hooked. it just seemed so different from what I thought I knew and I was immediately compelled. The structure and richness leave so much open to exploration. We started making things that day and we’ve never stopped. 

Holger: Felt is a very traditional textile in Germany. It is a fascinating and very versatile material. The merino wool felt we use it is all natural, sustainable and water, dirt and pilling resistant. As engineer I especially love the structural quality that allows us to make shapes that wouldn't be possible with other materials. 


Why did you decide to partner with Soma for the coaster set collaboration?

For us it’s simple, Soma represents the ideal to which we aspire. We see them as the perfect example of sharp, useful design by extremely talented and collaborative people who have created a really well run and hyper-aware business. They tend to teach us a lot.
