Standard Grit, a collaborative project by Christian Helms, a designer based in Austin, and Susan Helms, a textile craftsman in Black Mountain, NC., makes limited-edition hand-made flags, which you can check out HERE. Christian’s a True Friend of Yard Dog anyway, and we love these flags, so we’re thrilled to have them. Standard Grit Flags are 100% hand-made, produced in limited-editions and released seasonally: they make three new decorative flags four times a year. Each release has a loose common theme, and feature distinctive phrases that might serve as a call to arms, a gentle reminder or simple conversation fodder. All of the flags show the Helm’s affinity for southern vernacular and vintage or hand-rendered typography.
