Forestbound

Forestbound was started by Alice Saunders in 2007 and is a small operation based in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Alice and her team find and salvage textiles to create a unique line of tote bags and carryalls, in the hopes of bringing a piece of history back into the spotlight with each item. Many hours are spent scouring the Northeast for the storied textiles that they use, and more hours are dedicated to thoughtfully and carefully reworking these materials into something new you can use every single day.

We’re proud to be stocking Alice’s ESCAPE Canvas Utility Bag, which was inspired by the many perfectly worn-in, vintage canvas tool bags she uncovered at flea markets over the years.
