I’m continually drawn to simple, well-designed utilitarian items. Inklore offers a plethora of said goods. The everywhere tote is a timeless carryall (and charming in grey and white), and I think the Horizon clutch would be the perfect grab-and-go essentials bag.
Inklore’s designer, Sam Hirst, is also affiliated with online (and Los Gatos!) shop Post 61 Collective. It too is full of simple, useful things (including items from Fog Linen Work). My current favorite is the wooden gift box: customizable with a “No. 61″, “Love You”, or “Merci” label, I think it would be ideal for stowing business cards accumulated while traveling, whether to Los Gatos or Paris :) You can see more at the Inklore and Post 61 online shops.
