COBRA ROCK and BOW + ARROW at SHELTER COLLECTIVE

A few years back, I had the pleasure of visiting a dear friend in Marfa, Texas.  A host of galleries, a museum of electronic wonders, and a stark high desert landscape, a week there is hardly enough to take in all that this tiny town with big ideas has to offer.   

While there, I visited the studio/ storefront of boot making couple Colt Miller and Logan Caldbeck.  Cobra Rock Boot Company has made serious waves with their South Highland Boots, developing somewhat of a cult following and logging a wait list for their product that fluctuates from 6 months to 1 year.  Each aspect of their boots is handmade, and though several pairs can be made at once, a single pair of boots takes two and a half weeks to make!  Its this kind of dedication to hard work, fine craft, and great design that I can really get behind. And as a side note,  they are also just really nice people

On June 3rd and 4th, Colt and Logan will be coming to town with a handful of boots, some leather, and their sewing machine and will be setting up shop alongside me and my newest designs.  I couldn't be happier to share in my first Pop-Up with them, and I couldn't be more pleased about the venue.  Come and see us at Shelter Collective, 7 Brevard Rd in West Asheville.  Can't wait!
