We're a product of where we're from.
We grew up around heirlooms that lasted for decades, simple objects in our family homes that had weathered a couple generations already and were still going strong: a tough mixing bowl, a thick wool coat, a hearty waxed bag.
We liked that.
It made us feel connected to something. It made us honor the people whose craftsmanship meant a sweater might have fifty years worth of good stories tied up in it. It made us proud to be able to wear things well and pass them on.
We liked that materials too were honored— nothing easily gotten, nothing easily wasted.
