    We created another wild set full of paper mache goodies This time it's a beach party! And a boat trip to COOL GIRL ISLAND where our beautiful model Petra finds a treasure chest full of Falconwright bags.

    Big thanks to Petra for being such a beauty. Thanks to Jason and Tim for helping us take such fun photos. Thanks to Rob, Lee, Shayna, Tim, Mike, Kieran, Corrie, and Tallulah for helping us do some beachy paper mache. We couldn't have done it without you guys!

And of course we've got a whole slew of BRAND NEW patterns for you to check out along with some old favourites: Leaves! Grass! Cacti! Reversible Bags! Sprinkles! Eyes! Pineapples! And more.

  • 2013: A GREAT YEAR. THANK YOU!

    Hi Guys! I hope this colourful array of emoticons properly conveys my FEELINGS about this past year. Love, love, love! Dancing. Pineapples. Beers. Stars. And a little Santa for good measure.


    It has been a truly incredible year. In 2013 Danielle and I got to do a TON of work that we're really proud of. We were able to develop and maintain relationships with a lot of amazing retailers we admire. We've had the opportunity to meet a bunch of amazing new friends via our work and the Internet in general. And we had the pleasure of sending our bags all over the world to the most supportive, enthusiastic customers two girls could hope for. It's truly mind blowing to think about how many people have a little piece of Falconwright in their lives :)

    We continue being so inspired by our community of talented makers. Hats off to all the small biz people out there putting in hours and making amazing things with their hands.

    A big huge THANK YOU to everyone for your support this year. We couldn't continue to do this without you, and we're both getting pumped for an equally awesome (and snack filled) 2014.

    Happy Holidays!
    XOXO
    Sandi & Danielle

  • NICE TO MEET YOU: FIELDGUIDED X FALCONWRIGHT


    News: We'll be at the One Of A Kind Show this year! It will run November 28th - December 8th in Toronto at The Direct Energy Centre. 

    Anabela recently took some pics and interviewed us for the One Of A Kind Nice To Meet You series. Check out the photo and interview. We talk about spirit animals and how much Kanye West we listen to. The photo above was taken outside of Fanny Chadwick's - home of our favourite ceasar salad in all the land. Anabela answered some questions too! As you can see from the past number of blog posts, we've been doing a bunch of things with Anabela lately ;) Good times!

  • FALL / WINTER COLLECTION: SPIRIT ANIMALS!




    Today is the day! Our fall / winter collection is officially OUT! We're so excited to share our weird lookbook with you, shot by our super talented pal Anabela Piersol. It's called SPIRIT ANIMALS. 


    This season's collection is all about animal and nature inspired prints. Birch bark, snakeskin, leopard prints, pomegranates, seeds, shapes, space, and eyeballs. Check everything out in our shop here! 


    Danielle and I had so much fun playing with paper mache for this lookbook.
    Fun fact: Danielle is a pro paper mache artist.
    Also? We might be addicted to making snakes...
    Full collection of lookbook photos here!


    Black outfits & black snaps!

     

    We  recruited lookbook model alumni and buddy Caitlyn Murphy to wear a mask for us too.
    We covered up her beautiful face with a snake mask. Sssssssssss!




    This leopard might look concerned, but the only real concern she faces is what clutch to wear the party. Meow.


     Red zip ties & red tongues!

    And a closer look at all the bags! Some of the bags have fun coloured zippers too (as seen in the product descriptions in our shop). We are both SO happy with this collection - we hope you like it too!

  • STUDIO TOUR by DEBBIE CARLOS.


     



    Danielle and I had the pleasure of meeting awesome photographer woman and coffee lover Debbie Carlos last year when she came to visit Toronto. We had both been fans of her work before she contacted us about doing a studio tour (in fact, there is a Debbie Carlos print IN our studio!), so we jumped at the opportunity. Our studio, at this time, was very tidy because we had just had a studio sale. We can assure you, it is generally a pretty huge disaster zone, ha!

    Head over to Debbie's site to see more pics! And check out all her other studio tours too. She's got a really impressive list of talented makers up there and we are honoured to be included in the mix.

    Also, isn't this fireworks print of hers the greatest? Don't you want it so bad?
