What’s black and grey and cool all over?

The Caribou Duffle by Cook & Gates as featured on Of a Kind.

Caribou DuffleI don’t consider myself a sporty chick but I do have a thing for a duffle with a twist and couldn’t resist adding this artful piece to my collection. This hand dyed beauty is made in NYC and successfully marries a beach vibe with a city aesthetic. It’s made of a heavyweight cotton, has a comfy strap and is accented by a brass zipper.

Of a Kind sells all their editions in limited quantities so unfortunately the Caribou Duffle is now sold out. I do encourage you to swing by Of a Kind and read about the designer, Cook & Gates. They make gorgeous tote bags too! You could also sign up for the wait list and cross your fingers (and toes).

Signing up for email updates with Of a Kind gives you front row access to new releases. Of a Kind supports emerging designers and many of the collections are made in the US. I always enjoy owning unique objects that I know a bit more about its creators and Of a Kind is all about sharing the backstory. I’m so enamored with their concept, I’ve written about them before.

Great pick from their store! I am signed up for their emails but haven’t seen anything that is a must-have, especially at those prices (I know quality counts for a lot, but it’s still $$).

I hear ya! In my dream world I want almost everything they feature, especially after reading about the designers/artisans who are all amazing. But in reality, I order a piece maybe once a quarter. I think the prices are for quality but also due to the items are made in the US and many are handcrafted.

I did really want that brass bracelet with the little dots on it that was featured recently too but it sold out in maybe a day! I found I make very good use of anything brass and it still looks good after sitting around a bit (unlike some of the silver and gold filled stuff).
