The Iced Coffee Claw Ornament Raffle Ticket

Handmade by Derya Altan

The iconography of the Iced Coffee Code was developed through ten years of double-blind study into queer coffee culture.

Rendered in various shimmering mediums, this Claw makes vivid the original purpose of the oft-maligned limp wrist.

The Branded Tote Bag Ornament Raffle Ticket

Handmade by Nora MacLeod

When it comes to same-sex baggage, the canvas tote is the G.O.A.T. (Gayest of All Time). Its sheer ubiquity renders it invisible to the average people-watcher, but the trained eye knows there is more to this cloth accessory than its contents. Even the most simple tote is laden with subtext: size, shape, branding, and, most crucially, how it’s carried can broadcast the type of queer you are to the knowing community. Handle with care!

• Handmade by Nora MacLeod
• One of a kind
• Approx. 4.75 inches wide x 8.5 inches long x .375 inches deep
• Handle length: 3 inches
• Materials: Embroidery mesh, embroidery floss, paper, thread
