Sketchbook Crafts’ Studio
Amber Jensen was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and currently lives in Eugene, Oregon. She received a BFA in drawing from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Since then, she has traveled to New Zealand to work on a bucolic sheep farm, inspiring the creation of her own line of bespoke wool, waxed canvas and leather knapsacks. Each piece has been designed and sewn into prototypes, then modified in order to find a perfect balance of durability, style and functionality. Every pack is handmade with very fine attention to detail using quality materials. Drawing inspiration from 1800’s and early 1900’s mountaineering gear, owning a Sketchbook pack is like taking a step back to a simpler time.
