William Kroll of Tender Co. has become a good friend of mine over the last couple of years. It's exciting to watch a friends brand both grow and evolve, especially when he has created such uniquely exceptional products.
We've just added some new knits to the shop this week. Aside from the options stocked from London's Heritage Research and DS Dundee, south of the border brands like Columbiaknit and Centralia are equally on top of their game.
Even though Altadena Works could be considered a new brand in the game, all their products are made by experienced and cultivated artisans that have been producing bags for over decades.
Our friends Manabu and his wife have been busy at work on some new products for Southern Field Industries.
The New Year is literally hours away and all I can do is give thanks to 2011. While putting together this kit I began thinking about all of the items I desired this year that eluded me but all that really came to mind was "what would look good on a night out with friends and family?"
Inverallan is one of the last remaining hand knit companies in the Aran district of Scotland, full stop. There has been some talk that they are closing their doors but there are still shops who continue to work with the company.
