Closing Up Shop Sale

This is the hardest post I’ve ever had to write on this page.

As with most other small businesses, 2020 was a time of change, uncertainty, and deep soul-searching. Through this, I realized that this business is AMAZING, and I love all of my fantastic customers, but it no longer works for me the way it is currently set up. Because of this, I have decided to close Rock Solid Designs. It’s possible that we will reopen in 2022, after revamping our manufacturing process and product line, but in the meantime, my family needs me to take a step back and focus fully on other pursuits.

You have all been so amazing — I have loved engaging with you through email, at festivals, on Facebook live videos, Instagram posts… all of it.

As a thank you, we will be having a closeout sale. Everything that is in stock is currently 40% off, which makes this a great time to grab your favorite project bags or pattern storage!

Thank you all again – this has been an amazing seven years, and I have met some FANTASTIC people throughout my adventures.

Kindness Matters

  • A cotton bag with an orange and brown flower pattern and gray socks peaking out.
  • A cotton bag with an orange and brown flower pattern filled with orange-labeled beauty products.

Throughout the year, we support several non-profit organizations.

• KIVA is an international nonprofit, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.
• One Tree Planted is dedicated to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity, and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees! During the year, every time a LoLo Eco-Bag is purchased, one tree is planted. Just for this holiday season– we’ve extended that to every order! Every time an order is placed, a tree will be planted.
• Equal Justice Initiative works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment.

This year has been unlike any we’ve ever seen. In addition to proudly supporting the organizations above, we felt called to do something MORE. This holiday season we have pledged 5% of all holiday sales to Habitat for Humanity. Every gift helps a family build a foundation. A safe and secure shelter provides a second chance at hope.

We are thrilled to be part of the housing crisis solution. And know that with your purchases this holiday season, you’re part of the solution too.

Unique prints for special knitters

  • A white tote with a black floral print.
  • A blue and white patterned tote bag.

In this strange times we may find comfort in many different ways: art, nature, knitting… At La Cave à Laine we find comfort in making. Besides our Aquarelle collections of hand-dyed project bags, we have just released a composite collection of different bags, in new model and fabric.

There are the Llama bags, made with sturdy cotton printed especially for this collection. From small to huge, this bags are high in colour and fun! Because where you can find more fun than in a llama with a Fair Isle sweater? All Llama bags features heavy-weight cotton, cotton handles and multiple pockets in the inside.

And then there are also the special linocut bags. Starting from white cotton and a piece of linoleum, these bags are unique in every way. Each design was carved from a drawing inspired by my love for geometry and the nature I see around me. From lines to flowers, some bags are minimalistic blac-and-white creations, whereas others features some accent colours. Most of the contrasting fabrics are waterproof, making them the perfect bags to be carried around. All feature zippered closures and an array of pockets on the inside.

As always with La Cave à Laine bags, these capsule collections are unique and wont be repeated.

The shop is also updated with a vast array of tools and notions, and special treats for upcoming holidays. And for the whole month of November you can enjoy free shipping with code “HAPPYKN20!”
