NAITO MAKERS SAY

"[My Naito] is chic and rugged and adventure-y (Indiana Jones meets on-the-go maker!?). It’s SUPER roomy with tons of pockets meaning I can fit everything I need and still look put together. Proof that you too can be a sleep deprived mom of a 5-month-old and still sew a high quality bespoke bag on a very basic home sewing machine in a single afternoon."

—@rachelbeckman

“I was excited to make the Naito specifically because of the cute bucket shape and strap design–something a little different from my giant collection of totes. The design and instructions are well made and an optional free extended strap is available if you want it.

—@sew.smalls

NAITO MAKERS SAY

“Oooh this bag itched something I didn’t know I needed to scratch. The Slabtown Backpack by Klum House isn’t just a bag pattern, it isn’t just a kit, it isn’t just an online course, but rather a full-on, comprehensive, beautifully curated making experience.” 

—@sewnorth

“The Slabtown workshop was ideally sized, well-timed, the project was excellent, and all of the students experienced a high rate of success and left with a completed project they loved. The instruction was top-notch, both in terms of step-by-step instructions for completing the backpack, and by teaching us pro tips and helping us understand the logic behind the sewing instructions.”
