Knitted by hand in upstate New York and finished in Brooklyn, these fingerless gloves offer a level of craftsmanship and utility we've been searching for. The Ragg wool blend provides moisture-wicking properties while keeping hands warm, and a bit of nylon weaved in with the wool provides durability. Cuff hems are serged with an elastic thread to help retain cuff shape. A 2.5-ounce deerskin palm patch, sewn on with a century-old Singer chain-stitch machine, offers just enough grip for daily usage. The Upstate Stock label is tacked on lightly and can either be removed or kept on. And of course the fingerless gloves are perfect for our device-obsessed world.
Content: 85% wool, 15% nylon / Washing: Hand wash with a soft detergent such as Woolite.
For those that grew up in late '70s and '80s, the graphic designs of NASA are some of the most memorable of the period, appearing on everything from hats to the Space Shuttle. This reprinting of the NASA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this outstanding identity system, which was used from 1975 to 1992. Recreated for public use for the first time from the personal copies of the original designers, Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn, it covers the logo, placement, color schemes, and other design standards that helped capture the imagination of a generation and make the American space agency a lasting, iconic part of our legacy of exploration. Included are scans of Danne's personal copy of the original manual, a forward from Danne, an essay by Christopher Bonanos, reproductions of the original NASA 35mm slide presentation, and scans of the 'Managers Guide', a follow up booklet distributed by NASA. Each copy is individually wrapped in a foil static shield, adding even more nostalgic rocket-age flair to this iconic design reference.

Most of Jacobsen's sea salt is hand-harvested from Oregon's Netarts Bay but for this specialty blend, they sourced it straight from the Hawaiian islands. The Black Lava Sea Salt uses crystals from the Pacific Ocean and infuses them with activated charcoal, offering a unique, briny flavor and dramatic color. Sprinkle it whole for a crunchy texture or grind it for a mineral-rich finish to steak, vegetables, or seafood.
