We recently have worked with Broc Cellars, a beautiful winery based out of Berkeley California. Broc Cellars has a collection of wine that is called “Love Wine” that is labeled with small hearts that was designed by Marta Johansen. Our project was to create a mask embroidered with the design that Marta Johansen created for the wine labels. After confirming the design with Marta and Broc Cellars, production began. Whether it’s through clothing or though wine, both of our companies aim to spread love through our products.

Thank you Peoples Breakfast Oakland for being a consistent helping hand in the community.
This year we donated to the Wellspring Women’s Center which is an organization that serves women and children.

Some of the services that Wellspring Women’s Center offers is a safe place for women and children to gather, breakfast and lunch every weekday, activities for children, and hygiene kits.
