Stop, Shop, Sip, and Sniff Joshu+Vela at The Common


After teaming up with Tartine back in February, SF-born accessory brand Joshu+Vela is proving to be a team player. This time, a fashion twofer. Throughout the summer, craftsman meets craftsman at Common SF where a Joshu+Vela shop-in-shop will house the full range of backpacks and totes in all the colors.

Both born in 2010, the Mission outfitter is a charming complement to the USA grown designs made of woven organic canvas, leathers, and natural dyes. Built to last, and age with grace, Joshu+Vela marries minimalism with folk chic. Kill four birds with one stone and stop, shop, sip on a Four Barrel coffee, and sniff in the woodsy Common ambiance.

The Common, 383 Valencia Street, (415) 322.8773
