Colorway 2 of 2. Reissue of the OG colorway of the 5 panel cap, except with the new pleated pattern. Woo!
Teranishi + Ebbets pleat panel cap. We shook things up a bit this time and strayed from the 5 panel pattern we’ve done since the beginning. Colorway 1 of 2. Up now!
Made this one for my good friend @andrew3sixteen. Natural indigo dyed (in-house) linen thread on Veg Tan, Chestnut English Bridle lining/facing. Check Andrew’s page for more pics. I have a lot of people asking about these sashiko pieces - this process takes a crazy amount of time so I’ll make one once in a blue moon, but yes, they will be sparsely available from time to time. ✌️
Here’s a new little idea - hand etched pattern, obviously based off the same sashiko pattern I’ve stitched in the past. This is on a leftover indigo dyed piece from the last batch. I’ll have this one up for sale on the site soon. Just need to shoot it and get it up there. Stay tuned…
Here’s my prototype pack in real life application. Stash pocket and pen slots in use (plus everything else in there). One of my favorite things about the pack is that you can stash a jacket, blanket, etc under the straps at the top (reference a few pics back).
Last one of the new collection of canvas pieces. Probably the crowning achievement of the bunch. Where do I start…roll top with self cinching closure (via shoulder straps), leather straps with mil spec webbing/hardware, powder coated hardware, floating cordura liner, fully padded back, side access zip, large open “magazine” stash pocket w/subtle pen slots, vest pocket inspired front pocket, padded laptop sleeve…I think that about covers it. Phew! Pretty jazzed about this one. 🎷🎶
Moving along…a lil sling guy (fanny pack? 😳). I use my proto as a cross body bag and it has been a daily user. Zipper closure + leather flap, mil-spec webbing/mil-spec ladder lock for super quick adjustment, small pocket in front, large zippered pocket in back, padded back that’s quilted for mobility so it conforms and contours with your back, storm flap over zip that double as an expandable gusset. Maybe the most practical bag I’ve made. Would be great for cyclists. Stoked!
You might remember this one - It was a one-off we did a few months back. It’s pretty much the same exact pattern but with an added side zip access and a floating cordura liner. Floating, meaning the seams (except at the zip and hem) are independent of each other for added water resistance. Will hit the website soon.
I was planning on unveiling some new pieces here over the last couple days but that obviously didn’t happen. Better late than never, right? Here’s the final draft of the cloth Day Tripper. Waxed canvas outer, fully cordura lined, cordura true double bottom, mil-spec webbing supports up the side to help disperse the weight on the body, adjustable handles, adjustable roll keepers, interior and exterior pockets. Unlike the leather version, this can be expanded as needed all the way up to being a giant tote. Phew! That was a lot of info…be up on the site and available soon!
Sorta last minute but I’ll be hanging out at the upcoming @libertyfairs show in NYC. Shows weren’t really ever on the agenda but the opportunity came up so here we are. If you happen to be attending, stop on by and say hello! I’ll have a few new goodies with me that I’m pretty stoked about ✌️
Pins are up on the site. Get at ‘em!
Heyo. Who’s this dummy that showed up on my dashboard?
A Passion turned Full-Time Vocation: Teppei Teranishi, Vashon Island
What’s particularly inspiring about Teppei Teranishi is how the natural influences of his varied, interdisciplinary past have given him a unique design sensibility, evident in his unique leather creations.
Peek inside his small studio space on Vashon Island – a 37-square-foot island 16 miles west of Seattle – on Freunde von Freunden.
This is the first in a series of Making Of videos we’ll be doing that will breeze through the production process of particular pieces. This first one condenses the many hours it takes to make a Day Tripper into 5 mins. Woot!
