Dede Johnston For Skida

Behind The Print

Sharing a love of wintry landscapes, skiing, and Vermont, we teamed up with photographer and designer, Dede Johnston, to give her 'Crowded Slopes' series a new platform on our winter accessories. Enjoy!

  1. For the sweet tooth / Mast Brothers Chocolate / $54 pack of 5
    My dad loves this dark chocolate from Brooklyn.  “Exceptional chocolate and superb packaging,” he says.
  1. For the socially-conscious young professional / Sword & Plough Tote Bag / $219
    Started by a Middlebury grad, this young company uses surplus army materials and veteran labor to create stylish and durable bags.  In and out of the office, I carry their Messenger Bag.  
  1. For those who fight the wintery-mix / L.L. Bean Bison Leather Shearling Bean Boots / $239
    The ultimate winter boot.  It's all in the title: cozy, tough, and damn good-looking. 
  1. For the scatter-brained / Baggu leather pouch / $20
    This pouch is a lifesaver and comes in a whole slew of colors.  I'm partial to the Midnight suede.  Made in NYC.
  1. For the fisherman / Finn Utility Streamer Wallet / $55
    This Vermont-based company uses all natural materials in all their bags and accessories. The Wallet, like the rest of the collection, is a quality piece of craftsmanship that will be passed down to grandchildren.
  1. For anyone who wears shoes / Darn Tough Crew socks / $18
    Three simple reasons:  Lifetime guarantee, made in Vermont, and legendary performance.
  1. For the hustling traveler / Ursa Major x Topo Designs Scout Set / $54
    I swear by this Burlington-based company’s skincare products. Their super natural ingredients leave you feeling fresh and clean.  Great for on the go!  Plus, there’s a handy little bag from Colorado’s Topo Designs - all packed together in a lovely gift set.  One and done gifting!


 I love sharing great quality products that are made in the USA.  What could be a better opportunity than the holidays?  Join us in practicing thoughtful buying this holiday season.  Happy shopping!
