A bag of goodies recently arrived at A+R. When I opened it, I saw the colorful, utility-roped bag bolos from Karen Kimmel Studios, instantly fell in love, and now want to see the knotted paracord—reminiscent of its outdoorsy bungee brother—with its golden hardware everywhere: clipped on my key ring as I unlock the door to my new apartment in Minneapolis this fall, hanging from my backpack when I throw it over my shoulder before walking to class, and even as a stylish attachment to my Yorkshire Terrier’s leash.
A+R’s long relationship with the Technicolor world of Karen Kimmel continues this fall when Karen and her team take over the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs for their family weekend, Crafting Community. Among the many participating friends, A+R will be back with its Toy Lab. Join us!
Karen Kimmel’s Bag Bolos/Key Fobs are $36 and come in six color styles, each striking, just as a favorite accessory should be.
