Say hello to the Jimmy Beans Wool Make Nameste Makers Trunk! I have been looking for a good way to store my knitting needles and notions for some time now, and have gone throw a variety of different storage options. None of them worked out until I picked up the Jimmy Beans Wool Make Nameste Makers Trunk!
Do you remember those Caboodles from the 90s? The brightly coloured plastic cases where you pop open the lid to find cubbies, and then the cubbies unfold on hinges to reveal even more storage? Well, this is the grown-up version of those! I couldn’t even tell you how excited I was to open it up and watch the interior storage expand! Take a look….
This is my new Make Nameste Makers Trunk! I ordered mine in the Teal, which I believe is now out of stock on the website. You can get the Makers Trunk currently in Black, Blush, Chocolate, Cream, Lavender, Purple, and Red.

Here’s what the Make Nameste Team writes about the Jimmy Beans Make Nameste Makers Trunk:
“Our Maker’s Trunk was mindfully designed to bring a little bit of peace to your busy day-to-day life. With enough room to keep the essentials close by, the Maker’s Trunk is the ideal way to carry your projects while minimizing clutter. The Trunk is ideal for storage at home, but the handles and latch closure allow you to safely and stylishly take your Trunk with you while you travel without worry. Including maker-specific features, such as two yarn feeders at the top of the trunk and adjustable trays, the Namaste Maker’s Trunk is designed to help clear your mind and find Maker’s Nirvana wherever you are.”
- Four fold out compartment trays: The top 2 trays have dividers, and the 2 trays on one side are magnetized
- Two U-Shaped yarn feeders at the top of the lids
- Vinyl sleeve/pattern holder inside each lid
- Deep bottom compartment
- Latch closure
- Four sturdy feet on the bottom provide stability and protection
- Outfitted with hardware in a sleek Gunmetal color
So reading those awesome specs, I’ll show you what mine looks like when it’s opened up!
When you open up the sides, you are presented with the first layer of storage. The cubbies can be re-arranged using inserts that come out. I was able to store all of my knitting tools and notions here, along with my cable needles, and some of my straight needles. The insides of the edges also feature plastic dusters where you can store your printed patters! Ready to see the next level?
So in the next layer, I have all of my circular cords on the right, and my KnitPicks circulars set on the left. and in the bottom of the trunk, I have my Jimmy Beans Smart Stix set, along with my fabric wrap that holds my Furls Knitting Straight Needles. There’s also room for yarn at the bottom! This trunk seems to go on forever, guys. I’ve never had all of my knitting supplies fit in one place before, and I’m so in love and happy with this storage!
I would definitely recommend picking up a Maker’s Trunk if you are looking for some great functional storage. The case is sturdy and extremely well made, so I have no worries that my wooden straight needles are safe. Plus it’s beautiful enough to bring with you when you’re heading out to a knit-night!
Thanks for taking a peek at the Make Nameste Makers Trunk, I hope you invest in one for your own knitting or crochet supplies!
