Introducing: the Joshu+Vela Mission Tradeshop. For those outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, talented local photographer Mariko Reed has documented our new space in a series of beautiful photos. The Tradeshop includes room for both a full factory suited to our unique type of short-run production and ample showroom to showcase our entire lineup of bags and other goods. Highlights include airy 16-foot windows, restored Doug fir floors from 1910, custom Heath ceramic tiling in the entryway and dedicated leather and sewing bays in the factory.


We're located at 3042 16th Street between Mission and Valencia Streets. Come say hi!

Space flows seamlessly from showroom to work area. At center, our two-section cutting table in custom white.

Custom made for us, Italian white marble tables float on sturdy American steel.

Designed for small runs and high quality, the sewing bay enables tailors to custom reconfigure their workspace for each project.
