City Duffel • The Solarium on Solstice


This is the one. This is the one with the rizz Yes, it’s so good it can only be described using a word my kids basically taught me. No cap, the City Duffel hits different, it’s so drip. Ok enough with the Gen Zisms, because really this bag is for everyone, my momma, your momma, my seven year old, your whateveryearold, and me/you. It’s a daily bag you’re going to want to carry at night because it gives you all the feels and just makes you so happy. We did it up and made them all with two prints, so they’re extra and extra amazing. They were made with love and it is love. !

Seaflower Pineapple. The story of this print, one of the most popular in the JANA LAM catalog, is a fun one. One day way back in 2016 Jana created a print specifically for a local boutique in Honolulu. The artwork, a series of leaves and stars, was ready to go; ready to be presented to the client, when Jana happened upon some artwork in photoshop on her computer. On the screen she saw the flowers of the Seaflower print, outlined by a pineapple. Turns out, the rest of the team wasn’t as stoked on the leaves and stars as Jana was, and Megan came up with the idea of combining the two elements. Immediately Jana realized the potential of Megan’s creation, and sat down to draw it freehand. Five minutes later, Seaflower Pineapple was complete, and the rest is history. The original pineapple print in the catalog (now discontinued) had taken probably some weeks to finalize. Jana had worked on so many different versions and finally settled on one after much thought and discussion. Some designs take a lot of work, and others just flow naturally. This one makes her smile because of all the prints it was definitely one of the easiest to make, and it was truly a team effort.

All Jana Lam Handmade in Hawai‘i textiles are silk-screened by hand on cotton fabrics with water-based inks. This piece is made from 100% cotton fabric that is reinforced with interfacing to give the fabric some shape with a soft feel.

The #janalamfam recommends spot cleaning when smaller spots show up. We usually use Shout Wipes for that, but Jana has used tide pens in the past. Make sure if there is a white top print to be a little more gentle on rubbing spots out. Since the ink sits on top of the fabric a bit more than other colors, there is a chance of the ink rubbing off and getting on other parts of the fabric. 

But, you can put your Jana Lam's in the wash. We usually use a hand wash cycle and lay flat to dry. After it's dried, it is always good to give it a little bit of an iron. We use 100% cotton fabric, so it may shrink in the dryer, but will definitely stand up to ironing.
