When someone from La Scuola International Italian School contacted us for some custom bags, we were intrigued. Instead of simply getting their logo put on our bags, they wanted to feature their student's artwork. "How cool!" we thought to ourselves, then clicked reply.

SF Etsy Pop Up at Rickshaw Bagworks

The Maker Spirit is alive and well at Rickshaw Bagworks, as evidenced by the fantastic turnout for our SF Etsy Pop-Up event last weekend. Rickshaw has been collaborating with the SF Etsy Street Team for two years now in an annual “craft your own” messenger bag project. SF Etsy members create their own “flap” designs, and Rickshaw assembles them into one-of-a-kind messenger bags. The latest round of bags are on display at the Rickshaw Factory Store in Dogpatch through August 15. The project is coordinated by Rebecca Saylor, founder of OodleBaDoodle and team captain of the SF Etsy Street Team. Rebecca is also one of the participants in the custom messenger bag project. I had a quick chat with Rebecca to learn more about her maker spirit.
