Hot off the Presses

If you haven’t been to our Etsy shop as of late or seen us out and about in person, our line has expanded considerably over the past few months.  Part of this included a one-off creation of men’s dopp kits (ie. toiletry bags) from excess charcoal gray, olive green and navy blue military blankets originally bought for our city pillows. These bags sold out completely at their first showing in D.C. at the incredible Crafty Bastards and ended up being THE hot item for the holidays.  Who knew, right?

So, with so many people getting tablets for gifts, the military blankets are taking another incarnation into iPad and iPad mini sleeves (don’t worry, the dopp kits aren’t going anywhere!).  The idea had been kicking around in my head for a while and the “when I get time” turned into “right now” when an Etsy customer requested one last week.  Like all our device sleeves, they’re padded and these are lined in the same soft cotton seersucker in corresponding colors as the dopp kits.  So, without further ado, here they are, hot off the presses:

I should note that I only have iPad mini sleeves listed in the shop right now.  However, if you message me, I will happily create a custom listing for you for your iPad – or any other tablet for that matter.

Thanks guys!  Gotta get back to it!
