Gardiner, New York Visit Their Site
What happens when you unite cotton duck with a fashion sensibility? Utility Canvas—Jillian and Hal Grano’s project since 1990. Well known for making the biggest and best looking tote bags anywhere, they also make home goods and clothing, all from 100% cotton. Their distinctive quilted throws and jackets have been around since the mid ’90s. While the line originated in the Hudson Valley, they have expanded, with stores in New York City and Japan. The Soho location, Archerie, was named for their daughter, and focuses on a line of dresses that are decidedly feminine. The original store and warehouse in Gardiner, open on weekends, is also an outlet.
