Neighbor Love: Introducing Joshu + Vela

Can we get a hip hip for discovering other San Francisco designers? We know they’re out there, but sometimes things get lonely. So we’re excited to announce our latest independent SF discovery, Joshu + Vela bags! Their heritage-style bags and accessories are made entirely in their San Francisco studio using vegetal tanned leather and hazard-free waxwear from New York.

Indigo and mango leaves are used to dye canvas and brass hardware is the finishing touch. It’s no wonder that their products are so popular in the Bay Area, with their zip backpack being an obvious must-have at select design stores and the kind of thing no one would mind getting caught carrying at Dolores Park or Ocean Beach…

All styles are designed to age with wear from your casual (or glorious) adventures and you can see the progression on their blog! Needless to say, we’re glad to have another sustainable designer in town.
