Meanwhile Back on the Farm
Today’s Monday Maker is about Meanwhile Back on the Farm based out of Virginia and created by a husband and wife team, Bobby and Heather.
Meanwhile Back on the Farm
Meanwhile Back on the Farm started in 2015 as a way for Heather and Bobby to share with other’s parts of their lifestyle. All of their products are hand sewn from organic materials: vegetable tanned leather, waxed canvas and Liberty of London fabric. Their products remind us of their “home grown” aesthetic that Heather and Bobby want to share with everyone that comes in contact with their products.
