CARING FOR YOUR BAG

PORTLAND'S UP-AND-COMING ST. JOHNS NEIGHBORHOOD

PORTLAND'S UP-AND-COMING ST. JOHNS NEIGHBORHOOD

Once a small settlement started by a pioneer named James John, few realize that the St. Johns area actually became its own municipality. The neighborhood did not incorporate into the greater city of Portland until 1915. Even today, St. Johns maintains a detached, small town feel - despite being just a 12 minute drive into downtown Portland via the iconic St. John's bridge.

HAPPY WORLD TEACHER'S DAY

Teachers are very close to the heart of Clark & Mayfield. The inspiration for our bags was born in the classroom, with teachers and other working professionals in mind. While working as a media specialist at an elementary school, our founder - Lauri DeLaczay - struggled to carry all of her daily necessities along with a big laptop computer. She realized the need for attractive and well-designed carry-all bags for women, and thus, Clark & Mayfield began!

On this day, we want to recognize and praise our teachers, from the halls of universities to the homeschooling Mom - and everywhere in between. Thank you for your work, dedication, and inspiration.
