Irene and I became fast friends with Pam McCann this past winter and have been photographing a line of yoga bags called JoBird Yoga Carryalls that she and her partner, Jake Nadler have been developing since last year.

Several things about these bags are noteworthy:

  • They are made entirely in the U.S.A.
  • The exterior fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles
  • You can roll any size yoga mat into the integrated Velcro sleeve designed for easy and secure transport
  • They have created a line of “Brushworks” bags that feature artwork by local artists

This last item is the one I love the most.

This last Saturday, July 27, Irene and I had the privilege of photographing the second Champagne Reception, Launch, and Signing for their Brushworks line featuring artists Souby Boski and Elizabeth MacDonald.  A bonus for Irene and me?  The other two artists for the Brushworks line were also present:  Jennifer Sabella and Joan Morosani.
