WRAPPING UP HUNGER

As founder of Millie Lottie, I strive to do my part in ending food insecurity and realize that my Heirloom Wraps and discontinued items. I proudly launch WRAPPING UP HUNGER where 20% of my proceeds of each sale will go to support programs that are working to end food insecurity.  I love nothing more than to write that check at the end of the quarter to support amazing organizations that are dedicated to this cause. There are currently FIVE, mainly local organizations to choose from:  Food Runners SFSF Marins Food Bank Black Earth Farms , Leah's Pantry, and one national program, Feeding America. The list will remain fluid and may shift as I listen to what is important and needed.

Object of Desire: Multipurpose Insulated Picnic Totes by Millie Lottie - they are multipurpose and not just for picnics (take the cutting board out and use it as a market bag, beach bag, overnight bag, or in my case, a sports bag)

Fan WinstonRemodelista Editor

I stepped up my bag game when I found Millie Lottie bags. Made of durable canvas, a scorch-proof:wipeable lining, they are perfect for carrying a hot-out-of-the-oven casserole to Thanksgiving dinner, bringing appetizers to the Hollywood Bowl or a picnic lunch on the beach. They come with a beautiful cutting board that fits perfectly into the bottom and is great for stability, elastic pockets for wine bottles or salad dressing. My favorite part is that they are stylish and made in San Francisco by a women-run company.

“My Millie Lottie tote makes an ideal beach bag since it has an insulated liner along the bottom that helps keep foods and drinks cold and protects the bag from wet towels and suits.

Sustainable

 It is quite easy to be ZERO-WASTE when you are consciously involved in and control the production carefully. Sustainability informs my personal food choices, design decisions, production process and the very nature of my reusable products. I consciously source materials in the U.S.; work with team members within two miles from my studio; and patterns are designed and fabric cut for minimal waste. No part of a leather hide is wasted, leftovers inspire new designs. I am never satisfied; always looking for new ways to improve. 

Tools of the Trade

“I love branding my totes—it signifies they are ready to leave me and go out into the world and begin carrying and sharing food. I remember the first set of totes I branded: I practiced so many times prior to setting the iron on each finished tote. When I first felt the iron making its way in to the leather, leaving its mark, I was hooked. Seeing the name on the products is the final step in production and it’s as if my mother Mildred and Aunt Lottie have given their final approval. My family made jokes they were all ready for their ‘Millie | Lottie’ tattoo.” -- JAN HAMMOCK, DESIGNER + MAKER

Some Plum Life

"Mom and her plums," is the phrase I've heard uttered more than once over the week.I love plums, esp little Italian and French plums that have ripened on the tree. Having a harvest this year is a highlight of my Spring. In the 20 years living in my home, our plum has only born fruit one other time. Spending more time in my urban back...

My daughter and I decided it was time for a sheltering project. We decided to make a Chicken Paitan Ramen. The recipe was 7 pages including the broth, schmaltz, seasoning and meatballs. (This link take you to lots of casual ramen-process videos in my Instagram stories @millielottietotes)

Sheltering Life

I still am also finding much beauty in the world; community is strong and reassuring. There is much powerful imagery and imagination being shared. However, I am keenly aware that not every moment of this time of insecurity is beautiful.

Plenty

Reflecting on Thanksgiving, I realize that it was much more than a single day of giving thanks but rather a time of gratitude, plenty, healing, love and community on Peace and Plenty Farm and learned a lot about growing and harvesting saffron.
