Do not machine wash.  Spot clean with damp cloth.

We apply a Polyurethane Coating to the inside of the fabric to protect your goods from a sudden downpour. We do not apply a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Coating.  These coatings are fluorocarbon-based, generating by-products that are toxic and persist in the environment.  We prefer a slightly dirty bag to a dirty planet.

Designed in Portland, Oregon.  Made in China.

We designed this bag with reading in mind - and the incredible opportunities it provides us to use our imagination to step into the lives of characters and settings.  It is through the exercise of reading that our imagination becomes strong and vibrant, facilitating our capacity to understand others despite our differences.

Grab a book. Grab your e-reader.  Grab a paper. Let yourself imagine.  It is a step well worth taking.
