I’m an old soul. Office products are my thing. For years I tried to find quality craftsmanship, great design, and just really cool stuff but the industry had become dull. The products I currently aspire to find allow you to convey your innermost thoughts, capture your creativity, and inspire you to do great work.
What I keep in my bag are highly functional tools made of durable materials that look smart and keep me going at full speed in my busy day-to-day life. I want to look good, too. I keep it all in the Franklin leather bag, which I designed. It’s casual enough to take to the coffee shop and classic enough to get me to work. I even throw this one over my shoulder to bike to the lake for some me-time. Timeless design, handcrafted in Ohio, adjustable strap and smart inside pockets make this one of my personal faves.
