Their new Workday Recovery Kit includes a remedy booklet, a bracelet, affirmation cards, bandages, metal charm and certificate of recovery. And, according to Knock Knock, the kit “soothes malaise and restores purpose”. Sold!

In the spirit of the Makr Farm Ruck Sack, I found a few more back-to-school items for my must-have list. Get some “school spirit” with these cute Etsy finds.

How great is this poster by Jude Landry?! Created to promote a lecture by the amazing Jessica Hische, it does a wonderful job paying homage to Jessica’s Daily Drop Cap. I love the silver on brown and understated typography, to die for!

Makr Carry Goods

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

One of my favorite things growing up was back-to-school shopping! Though well out of school now, I think it’s a tradition I should bring back. For starters, I’d buy this classically simple canvas Farm Ruck Sack from Makr Carry Goods. The contrast between the leather and white cotton is so elegant but I also love the vintage shape to the tote.

This shop is full of beautifully designed goods ranging from leather key rings to bags. Made by hand and manufactured in the United States, Makr Carry Goods takes their craft seriously and it shows in their outstanding pieces. Be sure to check it out!
