I am not sure how I first stumbled upon A Two Pipe Problem Letterpress, but once I did I immediately loved everything I saw.
I had been eyeing the tote bags he makes for sometime and finally contacted Stephen Kenny (who runs the press) to order one. I am so glad I did because it is even more amazing in person! I love the description he has on the site for the totes:
Each bag is hand made to a very high standard and is based on American 1940s and 1950s post bags. There are 6 designs in this collection, each bag features the name and address of a British type foundry and the dates they were in business. So, a little bit of history with each bag.
How could I resist, right? Next on my wishlist is this print - because the sea does speak to my soul like nothing else.
Millie was pretty happy with the bag as well, as you can see in this instagram photo I snapped:
P.S. check out Stephen's blog HERE. I wish I lived close (across the pond) so I could take a workshop, but seeing his posts when others do will have to be enough.
