How To Make It Book

I first met Erin Abbott sometime back in the early 2000's on Thrice's first cross-country tour with Hot Water Music, who she was selling merch for.

Behind the Design | Venture

March 08, 2017

The Venture. It's a pack. A relatively simple one at that—but I tend to design from a very personal standpoint and some of the functions/details end up being somewhat specific. Of course, I try to keep things generally functional all around, but I thought it'd be good to outline some things for all you beautiful Venture-carrying folk out there.

On the Side, But Still Alive

May 26, 2016

I realized that I've been somewhat ambiguous about the move and status of Teranishi Studio. This wasn't intentional, there's just been a lot of other things that have taken priority in my mind and blogging or social media is not a strong point for me.

Updated Excursion

March 28, 2016

As I get settled into the new studio setup and life in general down here in California, one of the first things on my to-do list was to make a batch of waxed tan and black gridwax Excursions. We'd been out of stock on these for a minute so I figured it'd be a good way to break the studio in.

Pretenders or Chicken Tenders?

November 13, 2015

All three of us here happen to ride and all have a penchant for vintage bikes so the studio is often filled with moto-discussion. I came across a guy on the island over the summer that was liquidating his entire stash of little vintage Hondas complete with lots of random spare parts.

James in Japan

November 07, 2015

Teranishi alumni James recently took a trip to Japan and brought along the final prototype/sample of the Venture with him. James and I worked together for countless hours dialing this pack in so it's rad seeing him getting to enjoy the fruits of his labor—whilst strolling around the motherland, no less. Thanks for the snaps James!

Hinge pack

October 30, 2015

It started with a late night "Friday Funday" session. I had an idea to try a pack that had a hinged box-like opening. The original idea was for it to be zipper-less

Quarterly Subscription #3

October 12, 2015

 Quarterly subscription installment #3 of 4. We tried our hand at making a simple canvas tote. Turned out waxed denim from Cone Mills with leather handles. Of course, even a simple tote doesn't come without some tinkering for us.
