    Nothing inspires us to pack our bags and hop a globetrotting plane more than Job & Boss. The brainchild of Brook Lane and Kirby Mckenzie, this Oakland-based label has put the Japanese shibori tie-dyeing techniques back on the Bay Area map, with an irresistible line of handcrafted totes, purses, and scarves.
