Because every once in a while it is fun to just be silly.

first chair by Pennyroyal Design

07/27/2012 § Leave a comment

One of two chairs I recently finished here at Pennyroyal Design.  I think it turned out rather well.  The next project involves a beautiful teak mid-century modern couch.  I will be hand dying and stitching the fabric for all 6 cushions.  Slightly more ambitious, I would say.

On a different note…one of the things we strive for here at Pennyroyal is to have our raw products be as natural as possible with the smallest carbon footprint possible.  That being said, it has been extremely difficult to find fabrics made here in the US.  The majority of it coming from China.  After much hunting and some dismay over the loss not only our farms but our mills, I finally found a source not only for US grown, spun and milled organic cotton but also organic wool Melton!  Yeah!  I have some on order already and am really excited to begin working with it!

You can – as of right now – find Pennyroyal Design bags and home accessories at Loft 1513 @ 3927 24th Street, San Francisco.
“High fashion indie design house and brick and mortar store LOFT 1513 dazzles in their new San Francisco location, bringing the best independent local designers right to city fashionistas.  A perfectly curated collection of one-of-a kind sustainable apparel and repurposed designs; LOFT 1513 is a favorite spot for that special something you can’t find anywhere else.” – IndieMade
Loft 1513 feels like a very well curated fashion gallery.  And, I have to say, I am feeling very happy right now.  I may even eat cake!

 hemp cotton blend infinity scarf naturally hand dyed with indigo and held together with a little leather tie – here.

and another one – here.

another large tote bag in a dark woolen plaid.  This one has a really beautiful fringe.  Here.

and my favorite fabric in a very sweet tote.  Here.

Some more goods in the gallery.  Now…if I could just find an easy way to get the shop up and running!!!  To say that the process is frustrating would be putting it mildly.  However, as of tomorrow you will be able to find my goods at an actual brick and mortar store in Noe Valley, San Francisco.  Details…tomorrow.

Be well.  xoxo

back in the land of the living

It has been very, very busy around here, therefore, no blogging.  Getting ready for the UniqueSF show was a lot-lot-lot of work.  But, I did it.  And I had a great time.  It was, I would have to say, a success.  One of my bags was even featured in the Unique ad they ran in the SF Weekly.  So that felt pretty good.  I have enjoyed a couple weeks off with the wee ones playing in the beautiful California sun shine and now…back to work.  Starting on the 20th of this month you will be able to find my bags and some home furnishings at Loft1513 in Noe Valley, San Francisco.  And the new site with online shop will be up and running in a couple of weeks.  The online shop will be filled with lots of new designs and some brand new products which I am very happy with.  But, today, I am going to share some snap shots from around our home.  Enjoy the sunshine, wherever you are.

A new chair I have been working on for a while and a large stack of beautiful, over-sized floor pillows with leather handles – one of the new items that will be available in the shop.

Where Am I?
