Gift Guide: For The Cyclist
Looking to pick up a gift for someone who's bicycle is their main mode of transportation? Have no fear, below are ways to get that shopping done at this year's Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair.
Fabric Horse designs and hand-sews a line of urban living accessories like their U-lock holster as seen above. Fabric Horse says, "We combine style with function and sustainable business practices, which has made us popular not only with the style conscious, but with cyclists, craftsmen, stylists, photographers, film production crews, gardeners, and anyone who needs a functional solution to their everyday life."
If a bike is your mode of transportation, then keeping your ears and head warm can be difficult when a little bit of wind makes the wind chill feel many degrees lower than the actual temperature. Kozie Prery uses recycled knits to make cycling caps for all seasons.
If messenger bags are what you're looking for then make sure to stop by Vaya Bags this year. They gather old bike tubes from local bike shops and collect canvas scraps from a local sailboat factory to make the messenger bags and accessories. Plus all products are eco-friendly and 100% vegan.
