We are excited and grateful to share our collaboration with local merchant, The Hill-Side this holiday season! As part of their TOMS x The Hill-Side collaborative collection, Hill-Side produced a limited edition run of their signature US-made accessories — neckties, kids’ ties, bow ties, pocket squares, and scarves — in a custom "Big Halftone Floral" print fabric, hand screen-printed here in Brooklyn. As a way to support their surrounding community, The Hill-Side will be donating 20% of all revenue from TOMS x The Hill-Side "Big Halftone Floral" accessories to El Puente. We thank The Hill-Side for this beautiful partnership and know you all will LOVE their designs! Click here to check out The Hill-Side and purchase!
