Help Stella and Fritz bring DUMBO fashion to the streets!

Want a totebag that is just the right size for you? What about a wallet that is soft to touch, but sturdy enough for your hectic lifestyle? Look no further than DUMBO’s own Stella and Fritz, who are looking to launch their first line of production through Kickstarter.

Designed for both men and women, Stella and Fritz is a DUMBO-based brand that specializes in everyday accessories. They are launching two pieces that embody DUMBO style- the DUMBO wallet and the Vinegar Hill tote.

Michael Hubacher, one of the creative minds behind the brand, spent earlier years as a distributor, but soon wanted the creative control over his own line. The team started Stella and Fritz after moving to DUMBO and feeling the creative juices that make up this neighborhood.

“Each piece is handmade, and tailored to fit our lifestyle in Brooklyn, but without the $200 price tag,” says Hubacher.

The Kickstarter campaign is running now until April 20. Check it out and score your own neighborhood-inspired accessory.

UPDATE: Stella and Fritz have surpassed their $5K goal! They have set a new stretch goal for $15,000 due to the high demand of production. If they reach the new goal, they will be donating 5% to Badass Animal Rescue Brooklyn and throwing a party for backers in July at their DUMBO office. Keep up the support!
