We here at Joshu+Vela have often told you our bags are meant for everyone, everywhere; but it's not enough to write this to you from our San Francisco Studio. That's why we invite you to join us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest to discover how we fall in love with our bags and small goods from places near and far. 

 

Whether we jet set  to our paradisiacal home or take a weekend getaway for some sun and live music, our snapshots prove how much a great bag elicits great adventures. 

 

But let's not stop there. Tag us and share your favorite #Joshuvela piece with everyone. Be a part of a brand that loves to make sure your day– whether at home, work, or abroad– is dependably covered.  

 

 

Introducing the Snap Passport Wallet and Snap Card Case

Aug 23, 2016

Jessica Mejia

We’re pleased to introduce the Snap Passport Wallet and Snap Card Case, available in tan and natural leather. Toting your passport and other travel centric small items should be easy, and the dedicated passport pocket and leather dividers make organizing your time away from home a breeze.

Use the Snap Card Case as a small pocket-sized wallet to store your cards, cash, and coins, or use them together for ultimate organization.

A savvy traveler prepares themselves sensibly for their desirous time abroad, but may find themselves with their hands full of little essentials. Passport, phone, keys, currencies, pocket notebook— all of these are needed but shouldn’t bog down a trip with worries on how to carry all the necessities. Now you won’t have to.

Revisit this season's nine releases 
It’s been a very busy season at Joshu+Vela. In the last three months alone, we’ve released nine new items to our family. From long awaited edits to collaborations and new colors, we’ve loved what we added in store for you and can’t wait to share what lies ahead. As the Bay Area approaches Indian Summer, let’s take a look back at the releases that warmed even the foggiest of days.

Hello, neighbor

Aug 10, 2016

Visitors to our studio and the Mission often ask where they should explore next, so last year we decided to make shopping maps showcasing our favorite spots. But sometimes even we forget to take in our dear neighborhood.

 

We’ve decided to show you a few of the places that remind us why we love this vibrant district. In the end, what started as a photographic tour turned into a reminder that we not only love these spaces, but the people who brighten them as well.

    Curiosities indeed. Cheeky books, bones, and botanical supplies galore. Everything from the helpful staff to the moody atmosphere intrigues first-time and regular customers alike.

    Nestled under cool trees, this store invitingly draws you in with its colorful community-embracing art, gifts, and carefully curated clothing. We had a chance to check in with Holly and found we aren’t the only ones who seek pupusas after a night out.

    The store does not leave want for good light nor goods delightful to the eye. Come say hello to Hannah, who’s more than happy to show you cute baby photos or tell you where to lunch like a king when you’re on a budget. The store itself showcases beautiful print goods, ceramics, jewelry and more, all made by talented artists and designers.

    Located on the vibrant 24th street corridor, no one leaves this spot unhappy as they walk away with a scoop or two (or three) of their adventurous flavors. And while we stopped in on a sunny day, eve the worst weather couldn’t keep   us away from a scoop of scintillating Tahitian Vanilla or Earl Grey Plum ice cream.

    The ultimate selvedge denim and menswear cave. But if you’re not shopping, stop by and say hello to some of the dudes like Eugene and Young, who will more than likely have awesome music playing and a story to tell.

No excuses : The Utility Tote is for everyone

Our classic Utility Tote, resized to fit you just right.

  • More

    Recently, a small and sprightly customer dropped by our Studio, eager to try on and walk away with one of our highly-coveted Utility Totes.  To everyone’s amusement, the tote looked too large on her, at least as an everyday bag. So we took her measurements, and reconstructed the trusted Utility Tote to compliment her slighter frame.

    This led us to an interesting discovery: the Utility Tote in Small is not exclusive to the diminutive shopper. Those who’d prefer a smaller, daily carryall can enjoy this resized edit, too. With all of the same pockets, dependably durable canvas, and rich leather found in our classic sized tote, the Utility Tote in Small offers everything you love about us and our bags in a size that fits you and your lifestyle just right.
