Thanks for the mention of our Challah Makers and Jewish Handywomen logo-wear. Since you said you're "not sure what this is all about," I can explain that my husband and are are creating a line of faux "union" logos with a Jewish theme. We're playing with the notion of vintage trade union labels, which we admire for their graphic design. But also, we note that historically European Jews were often denied access to trade guilds and associations and land ownership---so there's an extra zetz to it all in that we are "rising up" (see the Challah design) and "organizing." I hope you saw the Purim-themed items for the United Hamantaschen Makers and Fressers. More lines coming soon!
