Some of you may know about my recent move out of designing graphic tees to accessories under the name 19FIFTYTHREE. My focus is canvas bags, collaborative projects and small custom art for the home. I started doing a little research on bag designers and fortunately came across Forestbound Original Bag Company. I went through the site and fell in love! I love the design, the concept behind the brand and that the brandmaker is a woman!
