Deadly Squire

Talk about beautiful fabrics! The Harringtons start by designing their own canvas fabric for totes and coin purses, along with oven mits, dog beds, pillows, ties, placemats. The DSQ team aren't strictly purse designers, but the little chamers they do make are a distinctive addition in a bag or over-the-shoulder. Below is a sampling of totes, a coin purse, and a pouch.
