Jared DeSimio of Dapper Monkey reached out to me a couple months ago to introduce me to his friends’ brand Ktaadn (which you can read about on the blog here). Being a modest man, it wasn’t to market his own very cool collection of bags handmade from s vintage, salvaged, scavenged, and found materials. I love the colors and materials he uses. Whether in more drab olives and tans or fun washed out summers pastels, the bags are fun and versatile. Check out his Etsy shop (which is also filled with clutch vintage finds) and if you’re in Portland for PICNIC, he and the folks of Ktaadn will have a booth set up so be sure to swing by it.
