Discovery of the Week: Cook & Gates

I spend a lot of time in San Francisco at meetings, auditions (I'm an on camera actress) and for work. It's a city that requires a lot of walking and you have to prepared to haul all your stuff everywhere in a simple, practical, efficient, and stylish manner. One way to accomplish that? With a Cook & Gates mini duffel bag. A friend who has one of the line's duffel bags said she constantly gets stopped on the streets about her bag. It's no wonder. Made by design duo Ethan Cooks and Sarah Gates, these striking canvas bags are all hand-dyed. 

The collection seen here is a part of the Of a Kind exclusive offerings where only a small number of bags are made and sold at Of a Kind. Each duffel seen here is $135 and for the kind of wear I'd get out of one of these, I just might have to buy two. 

Discover the line at or see the exclusive collection including the above items at Of a Kind. Also find Cook and Gates bags at Cameron Marks boutique in Santa Cruz, Calif.
