BEHIND THE COLLECTION: HAWTHORNE
The Hawthorne leather laptop handbag and Hawthorne leather roller are both part of our collection of sturdy, carry-all leather laptop bags. Following tradition, the inspiration for our bags' namesakes come from iconic places in our home town. Here's a little more about the name "Hawthorne:"
The historic Hawthorne Bridge has been a Portland, Oregon icon since its opening in 1910, and is a registered member of the National Register of Historic Places. It holds the title for the oldest highway bridge in the city and the busiest bicycle and transit bridge - carrying more than 8,000 cyclists and 800 TriMet buses daily.
Hawthorne is not only a beloved Portland bridge, but also an eclectic and trendy neighborhood. The Hawthorne District sports a diverse population, numerous breweries and brewpubs, and a steadfast dedication to their small, and quirky, businesses.
