Yesterday we had the pleasure to visit our buddy Max of @madesolidinla studio to see some of his amazing leather work! Really excited and inspired by all of the amazing goods he has coming out!

Last week we received a few unexpected inquiries regarding some of the postcards we’ve created in the past - so we decided to restock two of them and they’ll both be available online for your “note sending” needs very soon! ✒️📜📬

It’s so cool to see a kids interpretation on our designs. We admire the young visionaries!

We have so many random lil’ sketches lying around - we figured its time to make use of them…in the form of a: tote, postcard, wall art, zine, etc. What are your thoughts?

Let’s throw it back to the time when @bethanynauert came and photographed our space for @apartmenttheraphy! It’s kinda cool that people are still discovering our brand from our feature 7 months ago!


Thanks again Bethany for your continuous support!
