I have two really cool friends, Isabelle McAllister a Jenny Brandt. They are both ridiculously talented at what they do, Isabelle is a designer/decorator/motivational speaker and many other things, Jenny is a genius photographer. These two girls have a blog together, www.dosfamily.com. I recommend everyone to check it out. If you do a search on me on their page you will find a few different things we have done together.
Anyway, Isabelle, wrote this incredibly nice blog post about Bag-all, my family and me . She had put together old and new photos (trust me this takes a lot of effort). It is just so great I wanted to share the whole thing with you below:
Jennifer is such an inspiration to me or her whole family. They’re such a go getters in a great way. We got to know eachother in New York maybe 6 years ago. I had heard so much about her and seen her fantastic interior work. Then they moved to New York and me and my family was there for a couple of months so we hooked up and the became friends. I love how nearly nothing seems impossibly for this lady and her brood. They been working really hard to make everything work in New York and I’m so happy for her new shop.
Her idea is to make great looking fabric bags. That you can recycle and reuse instead of paper when you give gifts but also nice looking bags for storing your stuff. Like me I always use her bags for everything from camera equipment, earphones, make up to toys, pens and underwear. You can see her whole range right here and buy it straight from the web or find a store (all over the world) that carries the bags.
Images from the new store! Jennifer is one of those who have impeccable taste and always looks a million buck even though she’s wearing some old kaftan dress and clogs or whatever idea she’s have at the moment. Read more about her on this (very inspiring kind of new site/web -magazine The Way We Play)
Above you see images from the new store. Read about it on Jennifers Blog!
Jennifers daughter Celeste and hubby Micke at theis summerhouse. Watch that home tour that Jenny made right on this link.
The whole Jansch family! Cute! I do hope the bags will fly out of the store! And if you live in Sweden – visit Jennifers sister Stephanie who just opened a new shop as well – called Makeri 14 at Köpmangatan 14 in Gamla Stan (Old Town), She sells the Bag- All bags there and great knitting kits and other cools stuff. Check it out here.
I also love Jennifers Instagram @bag_all
It’s so much fun seeing a friend really trying and going for it! On her blog you can also read a lot about the journey of making the Bag- All happen! I do hope you think it’s as inspirational as I do!
The Bag-all Asia Tour is soon coming to an end. We are filled with energy and impressions from this beautiful continent. After meeting so many nice people and seeing amazing places, this trip has left us feeling extremely inspired.
Tokyo has been particularly inspiring and its with a long list of new product ideas that we will be heading back to New York. So stay tuned for new, upcoming favorites to our collections!
No rest for the wicked! We started off this year by traveling to Asia, where we've been visiting suppliers, customers and fabric markets in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai.
Now it's time to keep on moving and our next destination is Japan. We're very excited, especially about visiting Bag-all Travel Pop-up stores in Tokyo.
