Poketo is an innovator in artist-designed lifestyle wares and it’s so cool to see their new collaboration, Poketo for Target featuring a new collection of some amazing totes, bags, wallets, umbrellas, and more! I first met Angie Myung and Ted Vadakan from Poketo many years ago while we were all traveling around in the craft fair circuit. The LA based duo started by creating limited-edition artist wallets which were like little pieces of art you could carry around with you. (I am happy to have one of them.) The first run of wallets were very successful, so Angie and Ted continued to make more with new artists each time.
The Poketo for Target collection has been really successful and a lot of items sold out. The good news is that Target is restocking them as we speak so you can still shop for some of your favorites in store or online. Here are a few available Poketo goods: Poketo Birds flight bag ($29.99) and the Poketo Zig Zag Crossbody Hobo ($19.99) pictured at top. You can can see the list of all available Poketo goods on Target.com.
On the Poketo site, you can browse through the entire collection to find out more about each designer and their background, including which pieces from the collection they designed. Pictured above is London based designer Katharina Leuzinger.
Here’s Angie and Ted from Poketo when I first met them at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago from 2007. Congrats to the duo for the amazing collaboration with Target!
