How It's Made
HOW OUR SCREEN PRINTED GOODS ARE MADE:
The printed goods were developed over the course of the last few years with the huge help of our favorite printer Jared Friedman's shop, Econo Graphics. We spent many many hours together to experiment with colors, textures, after wash test etc... for products to look and feel like unique vintage worn out prints and still look amazing as we use them in every day life.
Our customized totes were made by a family owned small factory in Brooklyn, NY and printed zipper pouches were cut & sewn by ourselves until the end of 2015 in our studio, then all the items were carefully inspected by us and shipped to buyers all over the world.
Too many printing sessions, too little space to show in an 1 image above. My dearest Jared & Mandy :)
We have recently expanded our product line, and as a result have moved some production out of state. We were contacted by a family owned and operated factory, after the owner found some of our designs online and shared our interest in vintage feedsacks and design. It just so happened that their capabilities seemed to meet our needs, and after a trip out to visit them, we saw their wonderful facility and met all the great people working there. We were very pleased by this and have worked very closely with the factory to ensure that the quality and consistency of our products is as good or better than ever. While it is more difficult over a longer distance, we stay in constant communication with the factory, adjusting the process as we go just as we always have, to make sure each item is exactly how we imagine it should be! We are very happy to be keeping all production in the U.S.A., and it is a wonderful 'extended family' to be working with.
Beautiful fall afternoon at the factory
