Officially moved out of Teranishi Studio V4. Onwards and upwards. My back hurts.
Yup, moving...again. I’ll be at a fairly reduced capacity for the next couple weeks while I pack, move, unpack and reset the studio back up but I’ll still be taking orders and shipping. There will be a couple days in there where I can’t ship but I’ll make sure to announce that. I have some restocks and even some new styles I’m sitting on that I just haven’t had time to photograph and put up on the site. If I end up with some spare time I’ll get those up and post here. As always, thanks for the continued support. I’m always blown away by how loyal my customers are, even throughout this crazy rollercoaster ride I’ve taken this brand through the last few years. And yes, I reposted an image from 4 years ago. Laziness? Efficiency? 🤷🏻♂️

Arc and 5 Pocket wallets in Havana available now. If you were following along in the stories last week, this is what I was working on.
A little peek at something I’ve been messing with. I had some ideas for caps so I gave it a go. I’ve never made a ball cap so I was pleasantly surprised when it worked out. Verdict is still out but I’m pretty psyched on them as of now. Back in the Vashon days, @rucksack_village and I started setting Fridays aside as “Friday Funday” to carve out time from production work to chase ideas like this. This practice continued for a few years and was the root of our Explorations projects and our short lived Subscription program. Gotta keep chasing ideas to stoke the stoke!
Venture LT’s are up and available as well! Along with the original Venture, the LT has seen some updates/improvements. Perhaps most notable is the omission of zippers. This might seem unexpected, but the roll-top was always meant to be the primary means of access and it was a top priority to employ a system that would be convenient to access/close. The side zip was added as a luxury when designing the original Venture. In light of the LT’s foundational intent of bare minimalism, it only made sense to eliminate as many complications and potential points of failure as possible while still maintaining full functionality. It also has the added benefit of bringing the price down even more, which was another main idea behind the pack’s mission statement. Less is quite often more!
The (OG) Venture is back! It’s been a solid few years of just the LT version but it felt like it was time to bring the full deal back. This is my personal favorite pack. It’s what I use (and have used for years) daily. There’s been some subtle improvements/updates this time ‘round. Navigate over to the site for more info. Oh, and fair warning: I only made a small handful so you might want to pull the trigger sooner than later if you’ve been waiting for this.
Another recent addition to the available stock list - Arc in Oxblood.
