Henry Phillips

The Dremel Stylo+ is a versatile craft tool featuring 15 accessories for etching, engraving, polishing, sanding and other tasks. Dremel designed it to feel like you are holding a pen; it's sleek and lightweight, with a narrow profile and a soft grip. Plus, the motor offers variable speed options.

Henry Phillips

Produced at NYC-based Upstate's studio in Brooklyn, this Indigo Dye Kit uses synthetic pre-reduced indigo, since natural indigo isn't soluble in water and requires toxic lye.

These gloves are technically designed for motorcycle riding - but they're called work gloves, and they're built like them too, with 100-percent heavy-duty cowhide construction and double-thick leather palms with suede panels for added protection. Articulated middle and index fingers provide added flexibility, while a fleece tricot half-liner wicks away sweat.
