We couldn't be more proud than to represent Louisiana in the Alliance of American Manufacturing's state by state Instagram Made in America Holiday Gift Guide. "We've got our eye on the Tchoup Industries Insulated Drink Holder, pictured above, which is made of recycled fabric, water resistant, and durable - and will keep those holiday beverages cold." See their entire list of suggested gifts by category on their blog.
Recycled Banner Tote Set - $65
Earlier this year, the owner of Vintage Green Review - a package free retail shop on Magazine Street - helped divert a trunk-full of Magazine Street vinyl event banners from the landfill. She brought them to us to make into totes and zip pouches which in turn are sold in her shop and on our site. This bundled tote and zip pouch set is a value of $78 but selling for $65. Give the gift of Magazine Street history!
The Sazerac House loved our best selling Slim Fanny Pack so much they decided to sell a co-branded version in their Cocktail Museum gift shop. You have the choice to shop their gift collection for the version with our special collab leather logo (pictured above), or purchase the original classic right here.
New Orleans Magazine selected our recently launched Lionfish Collection for the fashionista in their local online holiday gift guide. "Lionfish leather is sustainable, local, durable, and visually appealing, making for the perfect crossbody bag or fanny pack." Read more about why we use the leather from this invasive fish.
Travel Roulez Satchel - $325
Also currently available at The Sazerac House Cocktail Museum gift shop is the newest upgrade of our Roulez Satchel style. This special collab has travel-friendly features such as two easy access front pockets and the Joey power system which helps you stay charged up and secure on the go. You can read more about the benefits of the Joey power system here.
Last but not least, Saint Charles Avenue selected a true star of our collection for their Avenue's December issue 2022 All Wrapped Up Holiday Gift Guide. "The briefcase for modern men, sling on a Roulez backpack when heading out for a day of demands. Comfortably padded for long wear and durability, the handsome bag is fashioned from oak canvas with chocolate brown genuine Louisiana alligator leather from Lafayette. Unexpected assets like a handwoven key loop and built-in bottle opener put this design over the top." Take our insider tip to purchase this one well in advance of gifting as it is made to order!
