About SKN Design

SKN Design was co-founded by Christopher DeGregorio and Jennifer Stevenson as a personal and home accessory design company that integrates sustainability into its fresh creations as a standard part of the design process. SKN reusable shopping totes are currently available in designer boutiques and directly on SKN's Web site at www.getskn.com.. After their appearance in NY's Fall 2008 Fashion Week, SKN totes were named the "Most Useful" reusable totes by Style.com. The totes have also been featured in national publications, including Health and Town & Country. SKN works with the organization American Forests to plant a tree on their customers' behalf for every order placed through getskn.com., and they invite retailers to also participate in this program. Each SKN reusable bag saves the environment from the waste of about 330 plastic bags each year, and shoppers carrying the bags look damn good doing it!
