Tiff Manuell 09.09.2014

We think we might’ve just found our creative soulmate! Seriously though, we LOVE everything about Tiff Manuell’s crazy fun explosion of color using organic shapes and painterly, drippy brush strokes!

In her own words about this little business adventure: “I want it to be spontaneous and to move quickly, for it not to be restrained by typical industry formats but more organic in its evolution.” We say, mission accomplished!

Check out her range of  bags, fashion, accessories and art at! We’re partial to the bags ourselves. You can just never have too many!

We heart Kansas City: Prairie Goods 06.03.2013

We are super-excited to introduce you to our new obsession… Kansas City’s own Prairie Goods. Several weeks ago, we learned of the gorgeous leather goodness our W studio mate, Jason Domingues, was making, together with his wife, Allison, in his spare time and we have been dying to share ever since. We’ve known Jason as an amazing photographer, and it almost doesn’t seem fair that he has a whole other crazy talent for handcrafting belts, wallets, and other accessories. We have been following along as each new color and style gets perfected and now we can all order them! Every piece is created just for you after you order it. The belts are even cut specifically to your waist size. How cool is that?! The greatest thing about Prairie Goods in our opinion… great gift possibilities. Guys are so hard to buy for and we are thrilled to have belts and wallets that we would be so proud to give the men in our lives (and the ladies, too, for that matter)! So, you better jump on it for Father’s Day!
