Moose + Pine

A couple months ago, when I was compiling my list of favorite men's wallets, I came across Moose + Pine, an online shop based in Dallas, Texas. I quickly fell for the colorful, tasteful collection and knew it would make a nice fit for Sweet Peach...

Mari Forssell was born in Helsinki, Finland, spent six years in the UK and is now in the good 'ol USA. She took up residence in Dallas and in 2007 began handcrafting laptop messnger bags, camera bags- then wallets, iPad sleeves, Kindle carriers, Smartphone and iPhone cases. A Scandinavian design influence is evident in her simple style and choice of pretty patterns. Oh, how I hope to visit Scandinavia soon...

Above is one of her lovely handmade iPad cases in gray and green wool plaid. Each case offered (she has over 20 iPad covers to choose from) is lined with a sturdy canvas and rivet reinforced straps with snap enclosures. 

I like the idea of having a stylish fabric pouch for my iPhone. I hadn't thought much of it before but when I saw all of these amazing options, I started to think about buying lots of them to match different outfits (if only). On the back of each is an eyelet to allow for your ear bud plug. Adorbs...

These men's wallets are stellar. They're for the guy who embraces a bit of color and is open to something other than all leather. Made of tweed and cotton canvas, these are the kind of wallets that stop me in my tracks to ask, "Where did you get that?" Mari would be happy to make these in any color combination of your choosing. Check out the Moose + Pine site for more info. And here's to Scandinavian simplicity, with an added touch of Southern soul....
