New Fabric: Modern Brown and White Chain Link Canvas

We have discovered a few new delicious fabrics and wanted to introduce them to you before they launched on the site! Meet one of my personal favorites, one I like to call “Modern Chain Link” because the pattern reminds me a bit of a chain link fence (in the most fashionable way of course.) This fabric is brand new and already sold out – we had to buy more! The deep brown background complements the white highlights and the canvas fabric is quite soft. We love to add anything red to the design – lining, handle, zipper – to give a lovely accent. If you like this fabric, you can design any of our bags with it before it’s launched on the site! Contact emily@elementalthreads.com and tell her you want your new bag in this fabulous new fabric!

New Fabric: Black and Ivory Woven Etches

We have found some delicious new fabrics that will be debuting soon on our website. In the meantime, we’ll introduce them to you on the Blog! Our first, and one of my favorites, is this great woven black and ivory fabric that looks etched and feels wonderfully textured. One of the best parts – you can reverse this fabric for very versatile, complementary looks. For example, in the Ruffle Tote below, the body is made with the black side of the fabric and the handles and pull ties are made with the white side of the fabric! If you like this fabric, you can design any of our bags with it before it’s on our website! Contact emily@elementalthreads.com and say you want your new bag in this fabulous new fabric!

Ruffle Tote: Red and White Paisley Woven Texture

This fabulous new design features drawstring ties on each side of the bag, so you can cinch it small or expand the bag to a massive 22″. There are two secure interior pockets and a loop to clip your keys. The padded handles are 27″ long and anchored by 4 grommets. Take this bag for a day of shopping, a trip into the city, a beach excursion, or use in your daily grind to fit in everything you need — books, bags, jackets, shoes, the kitchen sink — whatever!


This is a rich red and cream paisley fabric that has a fabulous woven texture.  The drawstring ties are made with the opposite side of the fabric as the body and handle — so it’s a little different and coordinates superbly.  The gray cotton lining lends an understated touch to this eye-catching print.

New Bag Design: The Ruffle Tote


Meet a new design in our family — the Ruffle Tote!  This fabulous bag features drawstring ties on each side of the bag, so you can cinch it small or expand the bag to a massive 22″.  There are two secure interior pockets and a loop to clip your keys.  The padded handles are 27″ long and anchored by 4 grommets. Take this bag for a day of shopping, a trip into the city, a beach excursion, or use in your daily grind to fit in everything you need — books, bags, jackets, the kitchen sink — whatever!

I road-tested this new design on a recent trip to L.A. and loved it. It carried everything I needed to go from day to night — jacket, sweater, scarf, book, notebook, flat shoes — PLUS all my usual stuff — several pouches for my wallet, camera, purse oddities, etc… On the days I carried less stuff, I just cinched the tote smaller and it looked like a cute little bag!

You’ll be able to design your own Ruffle Tote by Summer 2010. Can’t wait until then? We understand. There are samples for sale in the Blog Shop or design your own; contact emily@elementalthreads.com for more details.

New Product Design: The Card Wallet

We are renovating Elemental Threads in 2010 by improving the website, expanding our product line, revamping old designs, and introducing new custom-made bags!  Meet the newest design in our family — the Card Wallet.  This case measures 3″x4″ and was designed to hold your entire wallet in a small compartment.  It features six pockets made of durable rip-stop nylon and an elastic to keep the case securely closed.  I love the Card Wallet because it expands to hold a lot — I stuffed FORTY cards plus cash into the wallet and still had room — and the elastic still keeps the case securely closed.  Every other wallet I’ve used closes with a zipper or snap, and that limits the amount of stuff you can hold in the wallet.  I’ve seen too many ladies with over-stuffed wallets they couldn’t close and we wanted to fix this in the slimmest way possible.


Pair the Card Wallet with a Key Ring Pouch and you’ve got all of your essentials tucked into one secure package.  I’ve been using my Card Wallet and Key Ring Pouch for the last few weeks and it has really simplified things.  I sent samples to my friend Heather who asked me months ago to design a cell phone pouch. She was excited with the bags: “I love it!!! It fits my phone plus a few other things and I love that it has the removable wristlet.  I love the matching card holder too. It’s perfect for when you are heading out and don’t need everything you normally carry. The fabric is great too.” *UPDATE* Heather just sent further praises: “I’m a big fan of the bag and wallet that you sent me a few months back. I even detached the strap and used it when I went snowbaording. I just kept my phone and the wallet in the bag and put it in my jacket and it was awesome. Didn’t get wet or anything. I love it!!”

You’ll be able to design your own Card Wallet and Key Ring Pouch on www.elementalthreads.com by April 1, 2010.  Can’t wait?  We have a few for sale in our Blog Shop or you can contact us to design your own.  Send an email to emily@elementalthreads.com for more info.
