The striking, geometric, full-spectrum thunderbird that graces the entrance to Gravel & Gold looks like the combination of retro-future graphics and some Incan trickster god. It’s a good indication of the boutique’s prevailing design: almost everything comes in bold prints. This Mission shop is a repository of pillows, satchels, bags, tank-tops, napkins and bangles, nearly all of them striped or otherwise patterned, and curated from the Bay Area’s vibrant maker culture, as well as their in-house brand. Gravel & Gold stocks home décor and women’s apparel only, but from fountain pens to face mists, it’s a great place for a spree to keep that closet and workspace looking effortlessly stylish. They also offer inventive workshops, where individuals can learn to fashion macramé plant hangers. All in all, few Mission boutiques can boast such attention to craftsmanship.
