New Snap Clutch available in the shop. Made with undyed hemp and dark green canvas, with dark espresso vegetable tanned leather.
Little cousin to the Hemp and Olive Tote.
Rose with the sun this morning. I love that.
Feeling full of momentum and excitement these days.
There is a little piece on infusion in the May issue of Country Living Magazine. Our copy arrived in the box a couple days ago and it has been trickling throughout the states since the weekend I think. I must say, Country Living has such a friendly reader base. I have been receiving the nicest emails from complete strangers who have read this column, writing with simple words of kindness and appreciation. Thanks Country Living, and thank you sweet people!
The shop is now open! I am still working on photographing a few bags, and some old favorites, which are currently missing from the shop, will reappear soon with new photos to reflect some changes. One of the changes is, I am now sourcing vegetable tanned leather for use on the rucksacks. It is thick and strong and consistent. The straps are now hand cut (as always), hand bevelled and hand dyed with low VOC leather stain, then rubbed with a natural salve. It is a time consuming process, but the result is one I feel is worth it for the long run. There has been a slight price increase due to this change. Pictured above are some of the new items in the shop.
Time for me to get off the computer now. I hope you enjoy!
See you soon xo
The shop will be opening within the next few days, and new work should start appearing soon after, and will continue to over time. I am excited! It seems like it’s been forever.
It’s been interesting allowing myself lots of time and space to go with the natural flow of each day, enjoy the summer weather, get other things in my life done, while also creating a new work flow. It’s hard to do both! And it’s amazing how the days seem to evaporate. They go by way too fast. I think I’m getting the hang of it though, and I am liking the freshness of this change.
I’ll check in here with an update when the shop officially opens. And I’ll probably be here in the meantime too…
Another new tote, available here, in Indigo Hemp/Organic cotton denim and indigo ticking stripe. Tough morning for photographs. It is gray and super rainy. So so so much rain! I hope my little garden starts are okay with all this rain. Peas are coming up and radishes too. Do beans usually take a while to sprout? This is my first year growing beans and it seems like they are taking forever to appear.
An old favorite tote is back – available here. There will be a limited number of these available, made to order. I have only a small amount of this vintage golden yellow corduroy left, so if you missed one during their debut last summer, now is your chance! : ) Happy weekend friends! I hope it brings some sunshine!
