New "The Local" Theme Store in Bend, Oregon Special Leather Goods

One of four local "The Local" lululemon concept stores has opened in Bend, Oregon this weekend. The other three stores are located in Fort Collins, Colorado, Sun Valley, Idaho, and Fishtown in Philadelphia. What is really about the Bend store is that they partnered with local leather maker J Paige & Co (more photos on their Facebook page here) to make a collection of totes, backpacks, and other leather goods for the store. Here are some photos of these super cute items (thanks to my local store manager for giving me the heads up on these):

I really like this backpack, which looks like a customized version of the Tate Rolltop, $424, from the website.

Pipal Crossbody, $186.

I believe these are Alexander pouches, $94.

Not sure what style this is but it's cute.

I think these are Margeaux Totes, $480.

I really like the idea of regional stores with customized local products. It would be awesome if they also offered special print items by local artists, like they did for the Robson store grand opening.
