Sword & Plough  We work with manufacturers who employ vets, incorporate military surplus fabric into our bag designs & donate 10% of profits to vet orgs. Made in 🇺🇸!

We have been working on some REALLY fun new designs that we can't wait to share with you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We love coming up with new products that will serve new purposes. Our favorite part is finding a new veteran non-profit to partner with when we come up with a new design. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What product would you like to see Sword & Plough come out with next?

"I received the bag yesterday...perfect timing. I cannot thank you enough. My wife’s retirement from the Air Force will be a small gathering, but presenting your bag will make it a special end to a blessed flying career for her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for taking such effort to fulfill one of what I hope will be many orders. I really appreciate it, and will let everyone know from where the bag came."

One of the best gifts we've ever been given was from a driver of a snow plow. Yes, you read that right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

EMILY TELLS THE STORY: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Well, just before launching on Kickstarter, we did another business plan competition...at the Harvard Business School, their Pitch for Change Competition. And I got leave from the Army to attend the contest. It was just an amazing experience. We pitched to the audience and the judges and we won first place and the Audience Choice Award, which was just incredible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
[But] we almost actually didn't even have the chance to do the pitch because there was a blizzard that weekend [in Boston] and we were having a really hard time finding a cab...so we ended up hitching a ride with a snow plow...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I sprinted up to him. I was wearing high heels and a dress and I just told him..."We only have 20 minutes to get to Harvard Business School to pitch our idea to repurpose military surplus into bags and to work with veteran American manufacturers and donate part of our profits to veteran organizations!" [H]e waved us in and gave us a ride. It was a pretty lucky moment..." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you @wearethemighty for capturing our story! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What is the best gift you've been given?

A look into our Chief Operations Officer, Betsy Nunez's, life. Some days owning a small business means sitting on the floor charging your phone in the middle of a store because it's only noon and you're at 10%. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Any other business owners know this feeling?

Winter fashion is coming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We love the change of seasons because it gives us an excuse to bring back pieces we have forgotten about during the warm months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Does anyone else feel like they have a brand new wardrobe when the seasons change? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
