Northwesterner Series


Back when I started Wood&Faulk, its only real purpose was to ever be a blog. I wanted to share some house projects, furniture finds, and some general experiments. I added a store just to make a little scratch to pay for hosting and materials for projects for posts – but things are kind-of evolving already. I’m still keeping the blog format as you know it, and the current style of content won’t change. I’ll always want to share interesting projects and experiments like I’ve always done. The one thing that will be evolving is the store. As the books, notepads and miscellany sell off, they won’t be replaced and I’ll be converting the store content to more hardgoods and the like. I’m excited to have new bags in there, and will be putting belts and camera straps in the store this week as well. Hopefully this won’t affect anyone much, for the little bits never seemed to sell that fast anyway.

To start the store transition, I’m happy to release a new series of bags that I’m really excited about – the Northwesterner Series. Made with Martexin Original Waxed water-repellant canvas and fine leathers – they are sturdy as ever, and sure to last long enough for even the next generation to enjoy. I was inspired by the colors and the climate of the Pacific Northwest, but I feel the classic styling is perfect to fit any situation. Available in 16” sizes now, and in the larger 20” coming soon. All of them come with matching straps. Many thanks to Lisa Warninger for the brilliant-as-always photography.

Also, thank you to everyone who’s been such a loyal reader and customer so far. I’m amazed everyday to hear from old and new readers. It’s been a busy time for me lately, and I know the frequency of posts has dipped – just know that I miss creating and sharing things with you guys when I’m tied up. You are all such patient and kind friends!

    Wowzer. These are beautiful.

    Congratulations. It is really nice to see creative people who are really thoughtful in the way that they make things turning their passion into a living. There are so many horrible, mass-produced, throwaway goods out there – I think that many people want more than that. When we need a bag we want to buy one that is made with love and will last a lifetime.

    Wow that bag sure is purdy and it looks like it could store a pretty decent tool kit too eh? You inspired me to try and sell some of my own creations and I’ll never get tired of reading about a fellow craftsman and his cool experiments.
