Best Buds is a 15" black canvas tote bag screenprinted on both sides and hand-speckled with stars. Each tote is unique, no two totes have the same constellations and each comes with an accompanying 6" x 9" full color poem of "Best Buds", the story of how the Moon and I used to be best friends.
Creating this tote is a multistep process done entirely at our studio. It involves screenprinting both sides of the canvas, followed by directly speckling ink onto the surface, the handles and the sides of the tote. This tote is great for carrying groceries, hauling notebooks, and reminding us to be gracious to our best buds.

The moon and I used to be best buds. Each night I would put the moon in the sky and when dawn would come I would yank moon back down not wanting to say goodbye. Then one night I told the moon about how I had met a new friend. It was the sun, and it was bright and energetic and we went on great adventures.
The sun was nothing like the moon the things we did together were so different but with the moon I felt at peace. And then one night, without any hesitation, the moon dumped me out from the crescent and I began to fall through the stars.
I wish I had told the moon that "While sun was bright and new I would never give up our nights together because you are the moon and to me that is everything." But I didn’t say those things because I was falling and the moon was too far away. I thought about moon the whole way down and how wonderful our nights together have been and how much I’ll miss them and how hard it will be for moon to put itself in the sky and how I may never see the moon again. And then, sun.
