Announcement    Important Update:

HI ya'll, we are still shipping! But I am working solo to follow all CDC regulations for social distancing so my crew of 7 are not here to help me... so please be patient and bare with me :) I assure you that your items are still going to come but I need the full two weeks to keep up! Thank ya'll so much and stay healthy out there! Also your purchase of a bag from In Blue Handmade gives 50 meals to folks in need within the United States. Right now, more than ever, we are dealing with a food crisis of unprecedented proportions. With the necessary cancellation of schools and massive loss of jobs here in the USA, we feel our best move is to help people access meals. At In Blue, we believe that food is a human right. Every day, we will donate 50 meals per bag sold to a network of 60,000 food banks nationwide to provide lunches to children who are missing out on their current school lunch programs, and to help families put food on the table in these uncertain times. No action is needed on your part, just purchasing the bag guarantees the food banks get part of your sale. If you cannot purchase from us at this time, please consider donating to Feeding America to help continue these efforts to keep America food secure. If you are in need of food currently, please reach out to Feeding America or shoot us a message and we can help connect you to your local food bank!

About inblue

Sales 71,794
On Etsy since 2008

in blue handmade. Special totes for special folks!

In Blue started in 2008, after a relocation from bustling Chicago to a small farm in Southern Illinois. I bought a sewing machine on the way down, learned how to work it, and never looked back. Going from "I" to "we" with a team of leather working magicians and 50,000 + sale, In Blue has gone from one brick and mortar shop to a studio that we call home.

Now located in Asheville, NC, In Blue resides in a converted warehouse studio space. Together we make each piece by hand every day. We start with top grain cowhides, trace and cut our pattern pieces, sew 'em up, assemble them, and ship them to your door.

It has been our pleasure to take our wares on the road, attending and vending many major music and arts festivals, including (but not limited to) Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Merle Fest, Pitchfork Music Festival, and the Newport Folk Festival.

It has been an honor to be featured in British Vogue magazine, Bicycling magazine, MSN, Mountain Xpress, Try Handmade, Southern Lady, Southern Living, Outside, and many, many more press outlets. Most importantly, we love what we do, and it means the world to the In Blue team to be able to bring you a personalized craft and a unique way to express yourself. Thank you for shopping handmade, we think you have made an excellent decision! :)
