The weather is getting warmer and we’re spending more time outside, running errands, taking day trips, and hitting the beaches.  The latest amykathryn design is suited perfectly for these fun little escapades.  Introducing our Grocery Tote:

Handmade using this season’s amykathryn custom fabric, this lightweight tote has heavy-duty handles and is very durable.  Now here’s where it gets fun; you can customize what the bag says by creating your own personal shopping list! How cool is that?  We have a few veggie and fruit Grocery Totes over in our online shop, but the design can be completely customized.  This makes for a great gift, or a good laugh! This is the Grocery Tote Amy is carrying this week!! If you are interested in ordering a custom tote, simply add a Grocery Tote from our online shop into your shopping cart.  When checking out, include your personal grocery list in the comments sections (Step 4).  It’s that easy! If you have any questions or requests, email me (Victoria@amykathryn.com) or Amy (Amy@amykathryn.com).

So what items would you have listed on your Grocery Tote?!

As you may have noticed, amykathryn bags really stand out from any other brand. Most likely, it’s our custom printed textiles that make you notice their unique style. Every season the custom textiles are different. This time around I sprayed on a bit too much of my favorite perfume while I was drawing away. Miranda, from Parfumerie Fragonard in the south of France, inspired me for the print pattern in the Fall 2011 collection. I went to the parfumerie when I was a young, dreamy girl of 10 and then again when I was 15. So not only the scent, but nostalgia played a part in my creation of this pattern.

amykathryn uses organic cotton canvas of upholstery quality. We also use water based inks to screen print the fabric. Each piece of fabric is cut differently from the roll, making each bag unique. I love our soft and ethereal colors this Fall; Apricot, Denim, Olive and Black. What do you think of our fabric this season?
