Behind The Scenes

See How Tanner Prep’s Stellar Edition Was Made

“I really believe in manufacturing in the city,” says Brooklyn resident Rachel Nasvik. When it came time to start production for her new handbag line Tanner Prep, she didn’t have to do any research: Her business partner Arturo Jinjinian, the son of a shoemaker, grew up working in tanneries and mastering the art of leatherworking, and he now owns an ace factory that makes all of the label’s pieces. Watch their awesome Of a Kind edition came together. —meghana gandhi “We fell in love with this leather because it is a slightly different take on the studded trend. At first glance, the gold circles appear to be studs, but looking closer, you see that they are actually embossed—the imprinted pattern is coated with gold foil.” “The first step is cutting all the pieces. The Penny is made up of five dies, which are basically like large cookie cutters used to punch out the leather panels.” “After the pieces are cut, they are prepped for sewing. Turned edges are taped down and pounded with a mallet to make it easier to sew clean lines. Edges that have to be sewn together are shaved down to ensure that the leather isn’t too thick for the sewing machine.” “Filler made from bonded leather is glued to the back of the leather and sandwiched between the lining to give the bag structure and support.” “The outer details are sewn together, and the front pocket is completed.” “The gusset, which gives the bag depth, is constructed. After the zipper is sewn in, the handle tabs are attached to each side, and the lining is added. Everything comes together as the front and back pieces are sewn to the gusset. The bag is turned right-side-out before it is cleaned and inspected.” Like what you see? Then sign up for our newsletter to be the first to see Rachel’s new edition tomorrow!

Tanner Prep Rad Back-to-School Shopping List

When Rachel Nasvik cited prep school as the inspiration for her jazzy new bag line Tanner Prep, she immediately had us reminiscing about the hunt for the perfect Trapper Keeper and crisp pair of jeans. So we asked Rachel (a whiz at back-to-school shopping, since she has a 10-year-old son) to put together her picks for impressing the cool kids on the first day. —meghana gandhi “This Muji gel pen set is like getting a new box of crayons, only better.” “Button-downs are a must-have for me in the fall. I love the softness of this plaid and the dependable fit of Steven Alan shirts.” “This Anya Hindmarch pencil case is perfect to pull out of any bag. A little preppy, super simple, and very sweet.” “Loafers always make me think of back-to-school. These Bass Hearts Rachel Antonoff flats definitely have a preppy feel, but I like that they can be worn in a not-so-preppy way.” “I love composition books, even as a grown-up. I use them to keep track of everything and carry one with me every day.” “Varsity jackets are cool when you are out of school, too. This Lovers + Friends one would be great with black skinny jeans and black patent leather heels.” Rachel’s new edition fits right into the fall semester mix—see it Sunday!
