WORKSHOP 28

OWNER: Melodie Yoshida

TOP SELLERS: coasters, keychains, totes
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE COMPANY: positivity, aloha, inspiration

TALKING POINTS
Workshop 28 coasters are the perfect gift to send off to cousins in the mainland, your co-worker who’s moving away, or your BFF and her new hubby on their wedding day. They’re light, customizable, and functional. Coasters are made from 100% natural cork.

W28 Totes? AMAZING! They hold so much but still look super chic. They have punny Hawaii sayings and are eco-friendly, made from 100% natural canvas! Her new denim line has been a nice addition to her tote collection.

HOW TO CARE
- Spot clean totes and don’t throw in the dryer.

JANA LAM

OWNER: Jana Lam
WEB: janalam.com
IG: @janalam
TOP SELLERS: The Slouchy, the mini slouchy, and then the Slim Zipper Cross-body
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE COMPANY: Whimsical, colorful, joyful.

TALKING POINTS
- Each piece is one of kind, and it's not something you can just find anywhere-- because the fabric is not mass-produced. Most people who design their own fabric don't create pieces on the micro scale that we do.

- Every piece is hand-drawn, hand-printed and hand-sewn.  

- All Jana Lam Handmade in Hawaii textiles are silk-screened by hand on cotton fabrics with water-based inks. Fabrics vary from a lightweight cotton twill fabric, a loose weave natural osnaburg, and a light-weight soft white cotton.

HOW TO CARE
- All products are machine washable on delicate. You can even dry them on delicate.
- When washing, if the straps can be taken off, they should, and the leather patch may show a little bit of wear, but it's fine. It gives each piece more character and refinery.
