Stockist Spotlight: DEFEND NEW ORLEANS
By: Rachael Wingate
Defend New Orleans, located in NOLA’s Lower Garden District on Magazine Street, has been dedicated to celebrating and preserving New Orleans’ unique culture since 2003. Spend a day in the Crescent City and you will most likely spot a passerby, or even a celebrity, wearing their popular logo with pride. Proceeds from DNO merchandise sales has aided local nonprofits including: Team Gleason, Gulf Restoration Network, and Roots of Music – so this is a community-driven store that you can feel good shopping in.
DNO carries our Tchoup Flap Packs ($150), Mini Flap Packs ($80), Fanny Packs ($60), Trace Satchels ($55), Ditty Bags ($35), all made from waxed canvas and handmade in New Orleans. We recommend calling DNO ahead of time to check for their current availability.
