A few photos from our weekend away at a super cozy cabin in the Berkshires. I'm working on a new travel blog where I can better document all these cabins and getaways, so stay tuned!

I was honored to create a collection of one of a kind bags for select cast & crew of the new WWII movie Allied using WWII era materials that were all very thoughtfully chosen to correlate to the movie's time period. This was an incredibly fun project to work on and I feel very fortunate that I got to put all my old canvas nerdiness to use. And be sure to go see the movie, it's brilliant!

This holiday season you can find Forestbound bags at two great local shops. A selection of Forestbound Originals are at Olives & Grace in the South End (if you haven't been there yet go immediately! Trust me, you'll want to/need to buy everything). 

And you can find ESCAPE Bags at Loyal Supply Co. in Union SQ Somerville (right around the corner from the Forestbound studio!). 

I've decided to not do any in person events this year and instead just focus all my efforts on the online shop. So if you need a few last minute Forestbound gifts in Boston check out these two great shops!

I holed up in this secluded cabin for two days earlier this week. It was the perfect bit of calm after a month of taking zero days off and before another month of zero days off. I love what I do, but jeeze the months leading up to Christmas are just so so busy. A good book (The Nightingale - have you read it?! I can't put it down), a nice bottle of wine, and long mornings in bed were just what I needed to power back up and get ready for the holiday madness that is now upon us. 

Speaking of holiday - the 2016 Black Friday totes sold out in 2.5 hours! I think that may be a new record. Thank you so much! 

Right now I'm offering free shipping on all orders over $125 and stay tuned for lots of other fun sales over the next few days and weeks. I feel so so so thankful to have all of you out there as customers, followers, friends and family. Hope you had the best Thanksgiving.

2016 $50 TOTE BAG

Hard to believe it's already the holidays! But that means our annual $50 Black Friday tote bag sale is only a few days away and here's the design I made for this year. Doing my best to put as much peace and kindness out there into the world, and since making bags is what I do it seemed appropriate to put that message on our 2016 tote. Hope you love it!

The bags will be available starting at 7am EST on Friday morning on our website. Like always, we only make a limited quantity of them, so act quick! They normally sell out in a few hours. 

I'll be running a few other sales over the weekend as well, so make sure to sign up for our mailing list to get all the details!
