Tactile Craftworks  Handcrafted Leather Goods | American Made

Certain maps remind us of specific people. Brooklyn often makes us think of Emily Fischer (@haptician) of Brooklyn-based @hapticlab. Speaking as Sarah, I first came into contact with Emily when she made a mixtape for my oldest brother; a mix so good that my brothers and I still reference it 20 years later. When Tactile was in its infancy Emily was an incredible resource, offering advice about running a business and growing into wholesale. We owe a huge portion of our success to her knowledge and guidance. Now she’s a constant inspiration as a brilliant creative woman and friend. We get to see her twice a year while we exhibit together at @ny_now, where we catch up, bounce ideas off each other, and see pictures of her perfect baby. Emily constantly outdoes her own design work, and her newest Flying Ornithopter is no exception. So glad to have one for the studio!

Finally stopped to photograph one of our favorite signs in Milwaukee.

We’re taking the day off, and planning on being pretty lazy about it. What does your Sunday look like? Anyone want to come over for blanket forts?

We currently make 27 cities as part of our standard line, and 6 others that we create exclusively for other companies. We’re obsessed with the concept of place, where’s an important one for you?

Two years ago @jenny414 of @fern_and_nettle told me that her husband had bought her one of our Milwaukee Map Journals, and her plan was to use it to collect National Park stamps on their travels. I didn’t know her that well at the time, but I instantly (and embarrassingly) burst into tears. My reaction caught me so by surprise that 30 minutes later I was telling another friend about it and teared up again. It happened twice more over the next week.
I always hesitate to tell this story because all I can hear in my head is my 9th grade creative writing teacher saying “oh my god you guys, there are better ways of expressing dramatic moments other than just crying.”

Sometimes you don’t realize you have a dream until it is standing in front of you. It can be overwhelming and beautiful and make you inexplicably burst into tears before you know what’s happening. It may not be a reaction worthy of a well-written short story, but it is absolutely true.

@jlionturk took this photo while he and Jenny hiked @brycecanyonnps_gov. Their journal is filling up nicely.

We just had a dreamy meeting with @bayviewprintingco to discuss some new packaging and branding ideas. Milwaukee is saturated with incredible companies like this, doing beautiful work informed by decades of rich history. Can’t wait to see what comes of this partnership.
