Custom Island Maps!

As we edge into fall we just had to look back on some custom tote locales where summer reigns all year!

Hamilton-Island-Wedding-IMG_7795-BlogThis Grocery Tote was created for a wedding that was held on Hamilton Island, the largest inhabited island of the Whitsunday Islands in Australia!

Key-West-IMG_7783-BlogAnother summery wedding was held in Key West, the southernmost point in the continental US! We included an illustration of the couples’ adorable dog and their personal take on the iconic wayfinder sign in Fort Zachary Taylor beach.


Mallorca-Tote-IMG_7807-BlogThe tote above and coin purse below were complementary pieces created for an event in Mallorca, Spain! The largest island in Spain, Mallorca is a very popular tourist destination with most visitors coming from Germany and the UK.
