Description

Ginkgo trees stand out for their unique leaf shape (and their odorous “fruit” in the autumn), but they are also extremely resilient—a captivating symbol of strength and beauty. Hand-screenprinted onsite in the FWM studios, this mobile Ginkgo tote is a reminder of moments both fleeting and everlasting.

Did you know? The first species of this “living fossil” present in America was brought to Philadelphia at the Woodlands estate of William Hamilton in the late 18th century, which is still home to some of the oldest ginkgos around.

Diane Itter, in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia.
