I’ve always held a soft spot for small business. Nothing is more inspiring to me than a person with a dream and the courage to pursue it. If only we could all be so brave. Enter Tim Eads, an artist and fashion designer from Denver City, Texas who now lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Eads finds motivation in his desire to help people reconnect with our natural sense of wonder. Something I would say he’s accomplished quite masterfully. His work includes a line of tote bags that can be described as nothing short of a treat for the eye. Every bag boasts a high contrast color scheme and thrilling pattern that encourages fashion experimentation. They are big, they are tough, and they are beautiful. Great to take with you on a day or weekend trip or just to drag your laptop to and from
work. Bottom line, Tim Eads does not make bags for boring girls. In addition to his totes he also makes smaller pieces suitable to be used as change purses, pencil cases, or whatever innovative purpose a fashion forward person could think of. Every bag is hand sewn in Philadelphia USA from different sections of a giant fabric swatch, ensuring that every single bag is completely unique. Nothing is mass produced and he changes up his color schemes and patterns regularly so each bag is part of a limited edition series. While you’re on the site shopping for yourself, you can also grab one of the men’s graphic tee’s available for a man in your life that needs to shake up his day to day routine. You would think that since every product is made in America in small batches from high quality materials that to own an Eads would cost a fortune, but he offers up these little pieces of his heart to the public for less than $100. A price that I personally guarantee is an absolute steal. Go ahead and brighten up your closet while letting Mr. Eads help you reconnect with you sense of wonder.
