Made-to-Last-Vanessa-Murray

We’ve long prized gear built by hand. Our shop is full of products created the old-fashioned way, with a helping of sweat. That’s why we’re big fans of the new release from Hardie Grant and author Vanessa Murray. Made to Last: A Compendium of Artisans, Trades & Projects takes you inside the studios of some passionate craftsmen. You’ll learn how Iain Hamilton makes desirable chef’s knives. You’ll discover how Gaslight Electric makes neon signs everyone wants. You’ll read up on how small workshops turn out next-level gin, chorizo, and fire cider. Not only that, the 272-page book also includes step-by-step instructions so you too can make a few of the items featured. If you’re a weekend DIYer, or you just appreciate well-made gear, this coffee table book is calling your name.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
