I spent the day yesterday at the National Stationery Show in NYC. Typically, I spend most of my time at Surtex...an internatinal market featuring artists, designers, and reps who sell their artwork to manufacturers of gift product, bedding, wallpaper...you name it! We purchased a TON of amazing art...and I'm on my way there soon to continue! The amount of creative talent housed in the Javits Center during this show is amazing. I look through thousands of pieces of art to look for the latest trends, and unique designs that will go on journals, notecards, holiday cards, gift books, pens...things that you will find a year from now in Barnes and Noble, and Borders! I'll post some of my great finds in the next few days!
While looking through some of the vendor booths yesterday, I came across these great looking totes from Emile Sloan Seattle. They are made from cotton-laminated fabric that has a rain-proof exterior. I wish I'd had one with me yesterday so I could have carried all my things in cute style!
