Product Description:
My favorite stories always involve a buddy taking matters into their own hands and creating their own way. Or brand, band, product, store, movement or whatever. Basically, the scariest of territories where you embark into the unknown, with only your handiwork to guide the whole thing. And Portland’s Wood&Faulk is one of my favorites here in this exciting category of “buddies doing things on their own terms.”

I met Matt Pierce from Wood&Faulk about five years back. He was partnering with Greg Hennes on The Portland Bazaar and each year when we were setting up, I’d get to check out his latest bag designs and accessories. And each season, he’d have a couple new things. I loved the detail, function, durability, timelessness and confidence in his products.

From the rustic simplicity of their “Camp Stool” to that ballistic “Carpenter Bag”, the pieces were so impressive to me. And of course, their growing line of accessories and cool stuff. I’m blown away each time I hit the site to see what they’ve been cooking up. This stuff is special. It’s not like this is some big, lumbering company. Every detail is fretted over, and there’s something really special about that.

I was doing some work for The Jennings Hotel for Greg Hennes, and made a graphic for a tote bag made by Wood&Faulk. That was one bad-ass tote bag. I simply hit Matt up and begged him to make me an orange version. We worked out the colors, leather and canvas weights and in no time I had a run of 50 bags on deck! And that’s what you are seeing here. Introducing the DDC Brand “Orange Tote Bag” by Wood & Faulk. Item number “DDC-147” in our proud roster of spirited merch items.

This is the nicest piece of merch we’ve made to date. These things will GO THE DISTANCE. I’ve been beating mine to shit on the road and around the shop, and it’s as tough as it was on day one. Thanks, Matt. I love these tote bags!
