New release: Lunch Bear eco-friendly lunch bags

Say “Hello!” to your new BFF. It’s Lunch Bear!

Introducing the first design in our new line of eco-conscious goods, Lunch Bear is  silkscreen printed with eco-friendly inks and made from 100% recycled cotton canvas using certified Fair Trade and Fair Labor practices in a lovely natural and unbleached cotton.

These fully machine washable reusable canvas lunch bags are super roomy and will hold anything from a substantial snack to a large lunch. No really!

– Size: 7″ wide x 10.5″ tall with a 4.5″ flat bottom gusset. Featuring a Velco-like self sealing and snug top for snack-time safety.

Not only does Lunch Bear give hugs, he gives help! A portion of the proceeds from each sale of our Lunch Bear lunch bags goes to the anti-bullying organization Pacer. To learn more about Pacer and the anti-bullying movement visit them here.

With Lunch Bear you’ll never eat alone again. Lunch Bear lunch bags are now available in our shop here.

strawberryluna Interview + Studio Tour by Steeltown Anthem

Take a peek into the inner workings of strawberryluna with this interview & studio tour put together by our friends and Pittsburgh art & design blogger Dane from Steeltown Anthem and photographer Kristy of Burning Bright Studios.

We’ve been trying to set a date to do a studio tour with Dane for over a year, and hooray! It finally happened. Between all of our busy travel and work schedules it seemed like a Herculean feat, but in the meantime we’ve all gotten to know each other and become friends. And that always makes an interview so much easier.

Learn a little more about our handmade process of silkscreening prints and posters, how we got started, what our inspirations are, what we’re working on now, see where we do our print work and much more.

See the entire interview and tons of photos over here at Steeltown Anthem. We hope that you enjoy!
