Our SXSW 2019 roundup!

Tagged with:

Well, it’s safe to say that SXSW was truly Awesome!


From showcases with some of our favourite record labels and live screen printing at Flatstock to hanging out with old and new friends, here’s a roundup of what we got up to at this year’s SXSW festival.

Draplin tote bag giveaway

Our team hit the streets of Austin armed with the latest Travelling Canvas tote bag design by the one and only Aaron Draplin! With such a killer design, it wasn’t long before they were all snapped up by festival goers!


Our collaboration with Draplin Design Co. is the latest in a series of tote bag collabs with a whole host of incredible creatives. You can see all The Travelling Canvas designs here.

Official BSM & Polyvinyl Showcase

We teamed up with our friends at Big Scary Monsters and Polyvinyl and headed to Mowhawk for a night of music, merch and even more music!

We also teamed up with Topshelf Records for their official and unofficial showcases across SXSW at Cheer Up Charlies and Pearl Street Co-op.

Flatstock is always a highlight of ours! Surrounded by some of the worlds best gig poster artists, we set up our live screen print set up, teaching festival goers how to screen print their very own tote bag to take home on the day.

Brooklyn Vegan and Margin Walker Parties

We were super stoked to team up with Brooklyn Vegan as their merch partner and collaborated on their Lost World 3 events with Margin Walker at SXSW. We spent two days enjoying their stellar line up at Mowhawk.

British Music Embassy 

We were proud to sponsor the British Music Embassy who returned to the SXSW to present official showcases for its 12th year. Taking place at Lattitude 30, the showcases shone a spotlight on the best up and coming British acts.

Department of International Trade Show

This year we were involved with the Department of International Trade Show at SXSW, providing them with promotional material!

From entrepreneurs and investors to cutting edge digital disruptors, the DIT show gave organisations the chance to demonstrate their creativity, expertise, technology and innovation while making contacts to foster business development and professional growth.
