"Cotton Love are an independent online clothing store, selling a compatible mix of original archive and fashion forward vintage pieces. We developed an identity which would convey their love of stripped back functionality, reducing the neighbouring T’s of Cotton down to a more economical form, creating something both abstract and recognizable."

Founded is a graphic design studio producing creative responses for a varied and international client base. Our work is multifaceted. We create thoughtful, well crafted design for printed and digital use, develop brands and get excited about environmental graphics and product design.

Shop Hunting Tuesdays: Sketchbook

Sketchbook   |  http://sketchbookcrafts.com  |  http://ambermjensen.com

Durable, Unique, Functionally Crafted Goods.

Sketchbook was created by Amber M. Jensen, as a response to the love of adventure and exploration of the outdoors. A keen eye, a passion for art, and the skill of two hands goes into each creation.

Amber Jensen was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1982 and currently lives in Eugene, Oregon. She received a BFA in drawing from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2004. Since then, she has traveled to New Zealand to work on a bucolic sheep farm, inspiring the creation of her own line of bespoke wool, waxed canvas and leather knapsacks.

Each piece has been designed and sewn into prototypes, then modified in order to find a perfect balance of durability, style and functionality. Every pack is handmade with very fine attention to detail using quality materials. Drawing inspiration from 1800’s and early 1900’s mountaineering gear, owning a Sketchbook pack is like taking a step back to a simpler time.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of this awesome products proceed to the website or facebook page.

Quote of the week (16. - 23.12.)

76 Garments   |   http://76garments.com

76 Garments is a new company with old roots. Consider the following:

Do it the Hard Way.
Embrace the Truth.
Be Authentic.
Observe our Past.
Create your Future.

Doing it the hard way means doing it right. Our shirts are made and printed in the United States, because sometimes shortcuts just don’t cut it. We would rather support American industry and pay honest wages than save a few bucks. Embracing the truth means wearing it on your sleeve, chest, or wherever our shirts are emblazoned with uncompromising principles. Embracing the truth means rising above the politics and the status quo to sink your teeth into the heart of an issue.
