Cowboy Simplicity

Jan 11, 2014

When it came time to design a wallet, we drew inspiration from the old west. Being in California the desert is always near and the history of the west shows up in everyday things. Cowboys being the ultimate minimalists, would want a wallet that is rugged as well as simple. The leather we use is naturally vegetable-tanned in pennsylvania and is the same leather used in the best american saddles. It’s hand cut and sewn in our san francisco workshop where every stitch counts towards making the wallet last as long as the leather. The ultimate cowboy wallet, its as simple as a billfold can be, and because of that will last for years of use and wear in handsomely.

Canvas Day Pack

Dec 18, 2013

Aysia Stieb

Our newest backpack is in fact an old style. Based on a 1970's nylon outdoor pack made right here in the Bay Area, destined for day hikes in Yosemite. We re-did the backpack in 18oz cotton canvas and cleaned up a few details to make what improvements we could. One creature comfort we added is a laptop sleeve that will fit a 15 or 13 inch Mac Retina Laptop. The other is an outside front pocket thats kept clean with a hidden snap showing just a touch of a leather pull tab to make it easier to open. The military spec alligator clip adjusters will keep the backpack straps in place and are fun to adjust. Comes in three colors.

Nicasio Valley Editorial

Just over the hill from Point Reyes and far enough away from shopping centers of Marin lies Nicasio Valley. A winding road hugging a shrinking reservoir, a town with only a church and a baseball field - Nicasio is the perfect inspiration for simplicity. We came here to bask in the exposure and squint at the sun reflecting off the baked mud. With plenty of space to feel small in, we spent a lovely afternoon feeling the sun on our skin.

Photos by Color

In November we gathered together to take some photos and have fun re-imagining our website. The three of us got to talking about color, and how simple and powerful an impression color can communicate. So we struck on the idea to show a clean start to our work by photographing each color bag that we make on its own complimentary color background. The following is some excerpts, bits and pieces from this experiment.
