This handmade tote bag is a collaborative effort between Jenna Vanden Brink Ceramics, Moop, Abbie Adams Studio, and Clockwise, all small, mighty, creative Pittsburgh businesses. Illustrations by JVB, design work by Abbie Adams, bags stitched by Moop, and printing by Clockwise--what a team effort!
Perfect for picnics and beach days and trips to the farmer’s market, this bag was thoughtfully designed and carefully handcrafted in Pittsburgh, PA. The canvas is a natural cotton cream color and the asparagus are printed in dark green ink. Tag is a dark green, coordinating handsomely with the dapper stalks. Playful, ethically made, high quality craftsmanship--really a stellar tote we’ve got here! Oh, and did you see the dark green contrasting bar tack detail on the side?
