Case Study: WeMake Tote Bags

Custom tote bags for the design conference, WeMake Celebrates.

Custom tote bags for the design conference, WeMake Celebrates.

For their first design conference, WeMake enlisted our help to develop and produce 300+ custom tote bags for their attendees. The goal was to create locally produced, long-lasting bags that would be a keepsake for years to come. Unlike a lot of conferences who purchase plain tote bags in bulk and have them screen printed, WeMake designed a custom print that was integrated into the construction of the bag. Small details like an inner pocket also took the bags up a notch. Custom woven tags, and a commemorative patch were the final design details that made this bag a memorable piece of craftsmanship. Check out our process photos of the whole experience, and the final results!
