Back in the Studio

I can honestly say I feel well rested and getting back to being organized, my desk is cleared off, the orders are in order, and ready to design and make new things, after participating in two big shows last week.

Before leaving for The Smithsonian Craft Show last week, we completed an item that had been in the works in our heads for a few months, and I couldn’t be more excited after wearing it at the show. Only having time to make one, I took it on an off  as a sample (so easy to slip over the head, or zip down the back) for try ons. And everyone that tried it on wound up ordering it! Thank you for inspiring us! We will be making more of these over the summer. Such a blank palette, beautiful as it is, but the possibilities are endless! Made of beautiful French Lambskin, this Tunic is going to be my go to item, and the FEEL of it is amazing!

Shearlings, Made One by One

Opening a fresh box of some beautiful skins to make a special order, one of our most intricate designs of multi color lambskins, which  float over a black napalan shearling.

First step is inspecting the skins, cleaning up the edges, and sorting……as no two skins are the same, we need to choose  weight, the wool “nap”, suppleness, and size to relate to the different pattern pieces to be placed, marked and cut.

Stay tuned!
