MATERIALS

My love for natural fibers and quality durable fabrics comes through when designing bags. Read below to find out more about my carefully sourced materials. 

 
Screenprinted fabric

Screenprinted fabric

Many of our bags incorporate screen printed fabrics. These are all designed and hand printed in our Vermont studios. Inks are head set and made to last. 

Waxed Canvas

Waxed Canvas

Waxed canvas is a wonderful natural fiber. Cotton canvas is embedded with wax that makes the fabric much more durable and long lasting. It is water and dirt repellent and has a wonderful 'crinkle' texture that wears down to a smooth color with age. 

Recycled hemp/ Organic cotton

Recycled hemp/ Organic cotton

One of my favorite fabrics to print is a lovely heavyweight duck cloth made of recycled hemp fibers and organic cotton. It has flecks of color woven in that show its recycled past. 

Leather

I choose leather accents and straps for its strength and beauty as well as how well it wears and ages. 

Recycled Polyester/Organic cotton twill

Recycled Polyester/Organic cotton twill

Most of my bags are lined in a Recycled Polyester (PET) and organic cotton blend twill. The weave of this fabric makes it strong and able to take a beating. Each yard of this fabric recycles 10+ plastic bottles!
