Handcraft lifetime leather bags at approachable prices in the US

Brooklyn leather bags

Studio Visit: basäder: The Brooklyn-based duo explains how they handcraft lifetime leather bags at approachable prices

Granted, leather bags are not the same as electronic products, but this start-up faced the same decisions as a US electronic kit business does: Manufacture in China, or make it yourself in the US?

Johansson relates a story that reveals the harsher reality: “My first job was actually for a designer in this building, coincidentally. She was a small designer, just by herself, just like this—but she produced in China. Because that’s the way you think you do it, that’s the way you’re taught in school to do it—that’s why I came with that mindset of ‘This is how you start a business: You make your connections, and you find your sources in China and your factories.'” With their basäder bags, the two designers demonstrate that out-sourcing isn’t the only path to take, and join the movement that’s proving high-quality, made-in-America and durability can all be synonymous with affordability.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
