We haven't checked in with the work of Caroline Hwang in quite some time, and we just noticed she has been creating these fantastic embroidery illustrations recently. The Brooklyn-based artist has been doing work for the NY Times, New York Magazine, RVCA, and Starbucks in Taiwan... which means that Starbucks in Taiwan is up to some good stuff.

In our October issue, out now on newsstands, we documented our recent trip to the Filson Factory in Seattle, where the great team took us around the factory floor and showed us how their heritage and artisan bags are constructed. We also got some sneak peeks into their new Seattle Life collection, some classic apparel and Filson advertising, and of course, some of the most beautifully made luggage and day bags being created today. Or 100 years ago.
