When 1564 MRKT lost its lease and disbanded late last year, two of the makers decided to find a new home together. Luckily, they didn't have to wait long to move into a new retail and workshop space in the Tenderloin, Hoodline reports. Only a couple of months after the mid-Market studio shuttered its doors, they've successfully transitioned their brands Motley Goods and Studio Nico into the newly-minted Fleet Wood Studio and Workshop at 839 Larkin.
Remodeling and reconfiguring the space took a month of hard, DIY labor, but now the storefront plays host to the two workspaces—bag-making is upstairs and screen printing is downstairs—and a retail floor. Studio Nico offers the majority of the product on display, while Motley Goods is focused on custom orders with a multi-week wait list. Stop in to welcome the two brands to the neighborhood, and pick up a pretty tank or a tropical chic backpack while you're there.
