At 111 Minna, this last Saturday, there was an amazing exhibit of makers from across the country. A collection of American craft, value and fashionable goods called Northern Grade. I work with and for Juniper Ridge – we were represented in a collaborative Dopp kit, having parterned with Winter Session for a Fathers’ Day offering. The Dopp Kit, available here at the Winter Session website, could very well be the perfect gift for dear old dad; it includes our Trail Crew Soap and our Backpacker’s Cologne, and is presented as either a Forest or a Desert collection.

The Fathers’ Day, Limited-edition Dopp Kit by Juniper Ridge & Winter Session. Peering into the bag – you see there is plenty of room for Dad’s other bathroom junk:

Here I am (obi@juniperridge.com), at right, with our friends from Colorado: Winter Session’s Roy & Tanya. Their amazing goods are entirely covetable – check out these amazing roll up pencil/tool cases.

Here are some of the other wonderful brands representing at Northern Grade. This show is indicative of the real, new, American economy: stuff made by hand, made here, beautiful designed, and elegant in both form and delivery. Sign me up. Sign me up for good.
