Spring, a Time to Renew

We wore all of our coats so much this winter, and so glad to have each and every one of them.

My most recent shearling is from 2007, (the shoemakers daughter syndrome!) still going strong, but I feel like a fresh one would perk me up,

to have something nice to wear on special days.

The older ones get relegated to sloppy weather days, dog walking, and all other daily routine things I do.

I’ve been working with Toshiki on a new design for a new one that will suit me.

I really like the black on black we made for our daughter this year. Something similar but different maybe?

I also love color, and the Fringe!, so much fun. What about you?

Are you feeling a refresher coat is due?

Get a jump start on a plan, (or maybe find that bargain!) at our last show of the season,

Leather, Shearling, Fall!

Fashion Week, Fall in the air, always inspiring, refreshing………doesn’t it feel so good to get something fresh to wear to brave the harsh weather to come?

Last week I went to the leather show, to choose some new skins, and just be inspired!

Now it’s your turn to be inspired!

I will be bringing our new work this weekend to Tarrytown NY, along with many other fine artisans in all media
