Breaking News: Our Limited Edition Collaboration!

We are so excited to announce our Limited Edition collaboration with Overseasoned Amy!

A message about the design:

This is a very special collaboration with the talented calligrapher Kristen of Left With Love Lettering to honor our dear friend Jen’s sister Meredith who passed away in January 2021. Meredith struggled with addiction and mental illness but she also cared deeply about helping others, especially other women who suffered from similar struggles. 

This design was generously donated to CHOW to support mental health, recovery and wellness resources in the hospitality industry.

💚 Each 100% cotton/canvas tote features calligraphy by Kristen Espinola of Left with Love designs and illustration by Amy of Overseasoned.

💚 Totes are machine washable, tumble dry, iron as needed, but bleaching is not recommended.
