Collaboration with Gaston Luga

Aaron and I lead a very busy lifestyle. We each have our own business, and both are under two years old; that means plowing pretty much every spare minute straight back into our companies as we work to get them established.


Since we opened Botany Coffee last July, I’ve spent nearly every afternoon there! It’s the most time I get to see Aaron in a day, and it’s also the perfect environment for me to buckle down and get some work done. Whether my to-do list is full of emails, blogging, or working on a new design, I always know that I will have an extra measure of focus while I’m out at a café without the distractions of home to sidetrack me. This comes with its own set of problems, however - since my tasks are so varied, I often have to bring multiple things to Botany with me, and my purse isn’t big enough to hold everything I need.

When Gaston Luga reached out to me with the possibility of a partnership, I knew their product was perfect for me! Gaston Luga creates high-quality, ethically made backpacks that are both beautiful and functional. Their bag is the perfect thing for carting all of my work items between my home office and my second “office”at Botany. 


The bag is just big enough to hold everything I need - my laptop, charging cords, sketchbook, and pens/pencils - without being so big that I’m tempted to include items that I won't use! Gaston Luga backpacks are made with high-quality canvas and vegan leather; I’ve been working towards a wardrobe made up of 100% ethically and sustainably made pieces for the past year and a half, so I’m proud to add this bag to my collection!


If you’re in search of a high-quality, beautiful, minimal backpack, look no further. I’m in love with my black Pråper backpack from Gaston Luga! You can get 15% off a bag of your own with code clarkco15.
