Put a Fox on It


Satires resonate with us because of the element of truth attached to them. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein found comedic gold when their “Portlandia” characters invaded a shop and put a bird on everything in sight. Our feathered friends had become the darlings of the design world, appearing on totes, tees, and a litany of other products. Well, we’re over birds, and octopi too. A more clever animal has caught our attention. We want to put a fox on it. A little bit cute, a little bit conniving, sleek red foxes with bushy tails have won us over completely. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite hand-crafted products from the genus vulpes.
