When we saw your bags at a local show, we immediately knew they would make a perfect wedding gift and we were lucky enough to need one right away! The Newlyweds loved it so much, they used it the day after receiving it in the mail. And since seeing you, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them and have put one on my personal gift list!

Love my @millielottietotes sx-large Etta Tote for delicate produce. The cutting board on the bottom keeps everything straight and I love supporting local women-run business that also manufacture in San Francisco.

Local Production

I am proud to be a part of SFMade and Bay Area Made, joining other makers committed to keeping the vibrant manufacturing industry alive in San Francisco.

An essential part of my team is my sewer. She used to have a factory, then down-sized to a store front, and currently  works in a storeroom in the back of a shop. This year, I added more manufacturing steps in-house after loosing a contractor who lost  his space to the current real estate market, after being in business since 1948. 

I feel strongly that the fabric of our city needs diversity of industry.
