We are an award-winning London based industrial design agency that brought you the Angle Razor in 2018. After raising £60,000 on Kickstarter the razor went on to win a D&AD pencil and was shortlisted for Wallpaper* Magazine's grooming product of the year.

Now we want to complete the grooming experience with the beautiful Brush and Bowl. 


Most men will have experienced skin irritation from shaving at some point. It’s easy to rush a shave and skip out on the preparation, but this pre-shave step is the key to getting the best result from your shave. 

The Brush

Using a brush with plenty of warm water to apply your foam lather helps to soften the hair and raise it off the face. This helps you achieve a closer shave, reduce the risk of in-grown hairs and exfoliates your skin at the same time.  

The Bowl

Having a high-sided bowl allows you to get a great thickness to your lather. This thickness lubricates the skin allowing the blade to glide over it without causing damage to the uppermost layer. Our bowl also acts as a cradle for the brush allowing it to drip dry after you've finished your shave.

While we advocate shaving with our Angle Razor, if you haven't got around to buying one yet and have a cartridge razor, you can still elevate your grooming regime with our Brush and Bowl - you'll still be doing both your facial hair and skin a huge favour... but while we're here, you can now get both the award winning Angle razor and the new Brush & Bowl together in a special Kickstarter package, saving yourself 50% off the full retail price.


1. Cruelty free. We tested lots of brush knots until we found a synthetic option that performed like the traditional badger hair but is cruelty-free. Even better, our synthetic brush doesn't require softening in hot water like a traditional badger hair brush; it’s super soft from the first use.


2. Built to last. The brush handle and bowl are both made from anodised aluminium making them resistant to soapy water and wet bathroom environments and tough enough to last a lifetime.


3. More hygienic. The arm of the bowl acts as a cradle for the brush allowing it to dry properly after each use therefore reducing the build up of bacteria. 


4. Ergonomic design. Not only does the brush balance perfectly on the bowl, the weight and shape of both tools have been considered for how they fit in the hand, with the high sides to the bowl giving you the ability to whip up a foam lather without it spilling over the sides.



5. Better for the environment. Using a brush and bowl allows you to use more affordable and more sustainable bar soaps and achieve the same results as expensive foams.


Whilst canned shaving foam produces a great foam, we all know how bad aerosol cans are for the environment. On average bar shaving soap lasts for over seven times as long as the cans and are free from all those nasty chemicals.

Whilst it's obviously a little more work to work up the lather yourself rather than squirt it straight from a can, we've designed our hand held Bowl to make this as least amount of effort as possible. Taking the time to work the lather into your skin with our Brush will exfoliate it, soften the hair and reduce the chance of shaving irritation. 

Order your Brush and Bowl at our Kickstarter rate and make a conscious effort to reduce waste and look good doing it.


The Angle Razor is a machined aluminium straight razor that takes almost any disposable razor blade. It's been designed to be easy to control and to clean, to feel perfectly balanced in the hand and to give an incredibly precise shave using a single blade.

After being 383% funded on Kickstarter last year, we've been amazed by how well our Angle Razor has been received since launched. Now stocked in stores across the globe, we are giving you an exclusive opportunity to purchase one at a reduced price if you pledge for a Brush and Bowl today.


The Angle Razor has been improved since the initial launch in 2018 based on customer feedback. A tighter shaving angle with increased blade visibility gives an even closer shave and we’ve improved the way the magnet holds the blade whilst you are loading it. 

We are launching this updated version simultaneously with the launch of the Brush and Bowl so this is your opportunity to get your hands on the new and improved Angle Razor before anyone else.

After the success of the Angle Razor we knew that the Brush and Bowl had a lot to live up to. Starting out as a stand alone brush, we spent months finding the perfect size and weight balance and debating between a badger or synthetic brush knot. 

During on-going testing of the brush, we realised that the brush needed a stand to ensure it dried properly after use and that a shaving bowl would really complete the experience. At Morrama we find beauty in simplicity and so we created a shaving bowl that both cradles and displays the brush.

If you'd like to support the Angle by Morrama campaign in style then why not grab yourself a flash sheet of design-inspired temporary tattoos, illustrated by hand and printed on skin-safe, non-toxic transfer paper.

Risks and challenges

Making a physical product is a difficult task and there can be many challenges to bring it to market successfully from design and manufacturing to shipping and support.

However we are an experienced design & engineering team who have worked on taking multiple products to market including our own Kickstarter funded Angle Razor last year.

Getting products to market is what we do every day and we'll do everything within our power to get the Brush and Bowl in your hands as quickly as possible and keep you up to date with the whole process.

As a backer you're incredibly special to us and we look forward to keeping you updated on our progress as we bring the Brush and Bowl to you!
