Whenever possible, we try and support companies that still make high quality products here in the States. It's an ethos that we follow ourselves, utilizing local fabricators and manufacturers. It's easy to forget that every object, and every piece of clothing or furniture, has the work of real people behind it. Purchasing products with the knowledge that you are making a decision about what you support is something to keep in mind every now and then.
We recently had the need for a simple but outstanding canvas bag to haul small objects and such around town. The Eena bag from Beckel Canvas Products was exactly what we were looking for. Based out of Portland Oregon, Beckel has been producing a variety of high quality canvas products for over 40 years, and the Eena bag is the perfect mix of timeless design and heavy duty workmanship.
You can find the bag at Canoe, either online or in their store in Portland OR. And for a very well curated list of American made products, check out The American List over at one of our favorite blogs, A Continuous Lean.
