What we love this week // Bring your love of two wheels into your kitchen & closet with Vital Industrires hand screen printed glasses and shirts
Are you an Etsy fiend like me? If you aren’t familiar with Etsy.com, it is an online community that enables individuals or small companies to sell their handmade or craft items from an online ‘store.’ It makes it easy for you and me to have access to unique, one-of-a-kind items from people who craft in their spare time or have a full-blown start-up like Vital Industries.
Vital Industries, a Denver based company run by creative duo, Brett & Crystal, has a bike themed shop on Etsy that I stumbled across last summer. I saw these lovely tumblers with a tandem bike screen printed on them and could not resist. It was one of those act-before-you-second-guess-yourself moments and I’m glad I purchased! They are absolutely awesome and they get a lot of use around my kitchen. Vital has various designs of bikes on several different glasses and color options.
In addition, they have some fabulous screen-printed tees for men and women, and even some for the toddlers. I purchased one of these as well for a birthday gift, and again was impressed with the craftmanship.And for those of you in the Twin Cities area… this should be a closet staple.
