I'm blown away each time I hit the site to see what they've been cooking up. I was doing some work for The Jennings Hotel for Greg Hennes, and made a graphic for a tote bag made by Wood&Faulk. I simply hit Matt up and begged him to make me an orange version. Inner pocket for Field Notes, car keys or a wallet. Cool car keys/key chain leather thingie that tucks into the inner pocket.
We worked out the colors, leather and canvas weights and in no time I had a run of 50 bags on deck! Introducing the DDC Brand "Orange Tote Bag" by Wood & Faulk. Proudly manufactured right here in Portland, Oregon by our buddies at Wood&Faulk. The "As Orange As Possible" canvas is from Fairfield Textile in New Jersey.
