I was back in the old hood for a day and was delighted to see these trays we made for @elmcoffeeroasters are still kicking. These have to be 5+ years at this point. Very pleased that they’ve not only held up but have aged amazingly as well! We made some smaller valet tray sized versions of this when we had our subscription program going but this has me thinking about doing another run at some point 🤔
Elliot’s pack. The last pack I made for the boys and probably my favorite. 1000D Cordura outer with 420D Robic ripstop liner, YKK Aquaguard zips, leather bottom/detailing. I tried a little elastic cord stash thingy for random loose things like sweatshirts that he always seems to be dragging around. I also tried putting a pull tab on the corner since you always seem to need something to pull against going around corners. It actually works pretty well (but I already have ideas of how to do it better). By far the thing I’m most stoked on is the leather binding on the shoulder straps. I’ve always wanted to try that and the @horween leather I had was thin and supple enough to feed through my binding attachment. Pretty jazzed on how that looks. Oh, and he went for the local team @lafc for his custom patch.
I made my other two boys packs for Christmas. Here’s Miles’ pack. 1000D Cordura outer, 420D Robic ripstop nylon interior, suede bottom/detailing, YKK Aquaguard zips. Similar in basic design as Oliver’s but with some different details, per his design. I experimented with the welt pocket on the front with a one-piece storm flap/pull tab sorta thing—maybe my favorite detail. I included the same hidden-in-seam device pocket that I did for Oliver (my favorite detail from his pack) and custom patch on the inside pocket with his favorite soccer team—@spursofficial.
Thinking about the Vashon days...when I did this full time for a living, had close to 1000 sq ft of studio space, had friends (@michael.armendariz @antolech) to bounce ideas around with, and lived and worked in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Very very grateful for that time ❤️
I never got a chance to post this before these sold out but for the sake of it, here it is - Sakura stamped Oxblood Eno.
Range of current Key Clip offerings.
PSA - There’s a few of these Venture LT’s in Adobe made and ready to ship now. These will definitely be the only packs I have available for the holidays and probably for the next few months. Make sure to snatch one up if you’ve been sizing one up!
I made these braided key fobs once before and have a had a good amount of requests since. Here’s another go at them, this time available in Oxblood Chromexcel and Natural Harness. Available and ready to ship now!
I added a handful of smaller pieces to the site so I pooled them all together in an “under $50” collection to help you out if you’re looking for some more affordable offerings 🤙. Link in bio.
