We love our new Portland canvas bags from Maptote.  Here is their story.

After a trip to Europe, Rachel Rheingold (a fashion stylist) and Michael Berick (a cartographer) wanted to create something they could do together.  Combining their love and passion for travel, maps and design – MAPTOTE was born in the Fall of 2006.

The simple cotton totes are silk screened with fun schematic maps of various cities featuring their neighborhoods, city icons and landmarks. All designs are created by Maptote.  The bags are something both a visitor or a local can appreciate and enjoy.  Great for many purposes, the bags have a variety of uses from carrying groceries to a cute gift to everyday use.  All of their products are made in the US with the majority of products made in Brooklyn, NY.

We have so many amazing holiday gifts.  Hope we can catch up with you soon.  We will be at the shop on Christmas Eve until 4 or 5 pm.  Ring us to make sure that we are still there on Friday, 503 477 6818.  Cheers everyone.
