There are a lot of hands that go into making a tote, but the first hands are those that make the fabric. Some countries hand-weave their fabric, and others hand-stamp it...but either way, we can’t keep our hands off it!
Here’s a handful of our hand-stamped fabrics from Indonesia...
And here’s our Indonesian pal, Pak Anis, who knows hand-stamped fabric like the back of his hand...
He’s a handy guy to know and we have to hand it to him—he hand-makes the craziest cottons this world has to offer. Hands down!
So here’s to putting our hands together for this hand-stamping maniac, and to feeling good—'cause after all, it's Friday!
