Check out the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Rabat Magazine, which has a delightful three page layout dedicated to unique wood products, including our own wood purse from Supplii. The magazine elected to highlight our Bentwood Clutch handbags.
American Link Magazine – which covers creative ideas that are American made – recently focused on Austin for their March 2014 issue. The magazine highlights local businesses electing to keep sourcing, production, and all other operational functions onshore, despite some of the cost-savings and other advantages that might come with offshore vendor relationships.
We are proud to be included in this piece, proud to be part of Austin’s artistic community, and excited to be featured on the cover of a magazine dedicated to local inspiration, community support, and eco-living.
You can download and read American Link Magazine from the iTunes App Store.
Supplii’s Tote wood purse was featured by Pauline on French television in a segment on inventive products. Here’s the full video, with Supplii’s coverage beginning at 3:40. Here’s a brief translation of the opening statement: “For all the girl’s who don’t want to have a dead python or bit of plastic on their arm but want to be eco responsible and they like nature and they like trees but they are a little superficial, here is a handbag made out of wood…(pause) thanks for the applause…” Thanks Pauline!

We had a wonderful time in NYC at the InStyle Independent Designer Handbag Awards – Supplii’s Toolbox Tote was up for Best Green Handbag. Although we didn’t win our category, it was nice to be a top-five finalist and to meet the other designers. Not to mention a chat with Kenneth Cole. Here are a couple pictures from the night:
