Sporty Vegan Bags

I’ve been working on a new batch of bags just in time for Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason Center on July 18 & 19.

Here’s the low down:

The bags are made of nylon pack cloth, so they are lightweight, water resistant and sturdy.  The interior and pocket linings feature a recycled nylon fabric made entirely from post-consumer materials.

There are two zippered pockets – one on the flap for easy access without having to open the bag and one interior lining pocket.  The adjustable strap can be worn crossbody or over one shoulder.

Magnetic snap closure

The flap closes with a magnetic snap.  Flap fronts come in solids and stripes.  As an added bonus, the small pieces that make up the stripes give me a way to use scrap pieces of fabric left over from other projects.

There are two sizes.  The small version is approximately 7″ X 10″ X 1.5″.  The standard version version is approximately 9″ X 12″ X 3″.

Come see them (and me!) in person July 18 & 19 at the Renegade Craft Fair.  The .retool. booth will be in the Herbst Pavilion.

Getting ready for a show! – Urban Air Market, Dogpatch (Aug. 17)

Urban Air Market is in Dogpatch (Esprit Park) on Sunday in SF and that means that there’s been an additional buzz of excitement chez .retool. We’re excited to present a few new items, some of which are pictured here to whet your appetite! UAM focuses on sustainable design, which we really appreciate. We’ll be participating in their Lower Haight show on October 11!

As much as we love creating and presenting new items that we hope you’d like to make your very own, we are equally engaged in an evergreen process of making our booth and tables an inviting and visually appealing place for you to peruse our wares. 

So come by and check us out! (Booth #37, on 19th St, near Indiana) Sunday Aug 17,  Minnesota Free to attend.
