Sketchbook & Pen
Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business for over 30 years and we stand behind what we make.
If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
Our masks are satisfaction guaranteed. Please email@example.com if you're happy with your mask *or* there's something that doesn't work for you. We want to hear from you!
Cut and Sewn in Seattle
Our bags and face masks are designed and cut & sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve grown very fond of square sketchbooks. I think because they don’t confine me to a particular perspective: I often turn a sketch 90 or 180 degrees mid-process and discover a new way of seeing things.
I found a manufacturer able to make me pretty much my dream sketchbook: square, small enough to be very portable and yet still very utilitarian. Only problem was that to get it just like I wanted it, we needed to have them make far more of these than I’ll likely use in this lifetime. So we figured we’d offer it to our customers and fans: if you appreciate it half as much as I do, I’ll be happy.
The front is printed, as you see, with a simple line graphic that makes the sketchbook look like one of our Organizer Pouches. That’s just for fun. The notebook is Made in U.S.A. out of recycled material.
Included is my favorite pen: it’s the mini version of the ubiquitous Bic blue and white writes-in-four-colors pen, printed with our airplane logo. Use each color to delineate layers, processes, ordinal priority, whatever makes sense at the moment. Made in France.
