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.
Thanks to Paul Doherty and David Behnke, owners of the beautiful Behnke Doherty Gallery in Washington Depot, we had a lovely space to photograph.
Here’s Irene in action with her results:

Thanks to all for a lovely evening!
