“I believe in supporting a local economy to build community and our relationship with the environment. A lot of my creative decisions are driven by these values.”

When it comes to Patti's handsomely crafted canvas bags, her goal is simple — to ensure that whatever it is you're toting around is transported in the sturdiest of ways. Her bags are made from local repurposed material and masterfully reinforced where more stress is applied. More than just a dapper-lookin' bag, these carry-alls are designed to stay looking cool after trekking through forests, mountains or swamps. She even crafts many of them with waxed canvas for an extra water-resistant touch — just the thing for all those swamps we were talking about.
