We’re picky! We want everything we offer to our customers to be beautiful and make a statement. We also want to have fun doing it. That’s why we keep it local. This limited edition canvas tote bag was designed by a San Francisco graphic designer, printed 20 minutes from our store, and sewn in the Dogpatch. We paid a little visit to the printer last week, and had way more fun than expected.
