Today I wanted to share with you a new shop that I love, Sword and Plough, founded in 2012. This company was launched by two sisters that affectionately call themselves Army Brats, after growing up on post at West Point, where their father spent most of his life. Emily, one of the sisters even become an officer in the U.S. Army and after many tours headed back to the states and started this company with her sister, Betsy. A little blurb from their site says, "The Nunez sisters wanted to create something that would emotionally and physically touch civilians in their everyday lives and remind them, in a beautiful way, of the challenges our country and servicemen face, and the power that every person has to help. Most individuals use a bag of some form throughout their day. By recycling and repurposing military gear with a fashionable touch, and working with veterans, we create sturdy and sophisticated products, whose sale will empower veteran employment, reduce waste and strengthen civil-military understanding. In this way, our bags are rugged, refined and relevant."
Today, I thought I would share with you a few of my favorites. These would make great gifts - or even a nice investment for yourself!
Purchase a bag or read more of their story on their website, Sword & Plough.
Happy Wednesday Friends!
