Past Collections » Spring 2012

Gravel & Gold, the shop, opened its doors in 2008. Since 2012, we have produced clothing, accessories, and home goods with an emphasis on handmade print designs. Everything (almost) is made in San Francisco, California. We've also had the pleasure of collaborating with a host of inspiring producers and artists in the Bay Area and further afield. We are honored to do this work we love with people of such excellent-high standard! Please enjoy exploring our archive!

Spring 2012

We made our first collection ourselves. Well, Zoo-Ink printed the fabric and Holly Samuelsen sewed it while at the same time she taught us how to print and sew. We began with one print, "Panda Face," and two solid fabrics which we sewed into a tank top, a tank dress, the Gemini Dress, the Gemini Top, and two different bag designs. We learned a lot, quick! 

For one week, we participated in a residency at Gospel Flat Farm in Bolinas, California, where we pinned, ironed, sewed, and ironed some more with the help a range of wonderful volunteers. We really pumped up the volume that week. Thanks Bronie & Mickey!  

For our vibrational photo shoot, we loaded another group of sweet friends and their bikes onto the ferry for a classic foggy-sunny ramble around Angel Island. Em Gift did the bulk of the organizing that day and Cass took the pictures. O salad days!
