ban.do at urbanic!



we think urbanic is magical! it’s one of our favorite LA stores. it’s also one of those stores that makes you happy from the moment you walk in. plus, it’s located on abbot kinney – the coolest block in america!

we’re so happy to announce that urbanic now carries ban.do! they’ve got tons of stuff from our new line and tons of other totally cute stuff from other brands too.  if that’s not a reason to celebrate, we don’t know what is!  oh, and if you’re not in the LA, try searching for local retailers in your area on our “where to buy” page!

ban.do fun fact!

winning VIP tickets for life to coachella is definitely a thing. a really really REALLY cool thing. our lead graphic designer, ali labelle, can totally vouch for that. if you’re not familiar with carpoolchella, it’s where you pimp out your ride with paint, gems or whatever the heck you want, and then carpool to coachella with your best buds. the winning rides are  selected and those lucky festival goers get to draw a prize from a hat. the hat contains prizes that range anywhere from ferris wheel vouchers to VIP tickets for life. ali’s carpool was selected and they drew VIP tickets for life! talk about holding aces!
