We are so excited about out collaboration (Koolaburra-tion?) with Emily Rosendahl of E.R. Leather Goods! Another dream come true.. from shoes to HANDBAGS! Designer Emily recently wrote a blog post that took the words out of our mouths and made us swoon even harder over this Santa Barbara local maker.
Read below for more on the collaboration!
“I have always been a big supporter of collaboration in business. I feel it’s a wonderful way to learn more about your brand, reach higher, broaden your spectrum, and above all, work with other talented and driven people.
When I was approached by the Santa Barbara based shoe company Koolaburra, it was a no brainer. Of course I would collaborate! Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a slight obsession with boots and shoes so it seemed like the perfect fit…pun intended…and naturally I loved that they were a local company with a similar mindset.
With a relaxed and easy-going crew at Koolaburra, we came up with a wonderful collection of handbags to introduce to their customers, as they had yet to venture into the world of bags and clutches!
We paired brindle and black hair on hides with metallic lining and fringe for their signature tote bag and clutch. Both of which happen to be two of my favorite items I have made in a while. As I said, it’s nice to step outside the box and get a different perspective. I love the outcome and I hope you all do too!
For more images and product details, please head over to Koolaburra and visit their new Handbags section! Don’t forget to check out the shoes too, there are some gems that I can’t wait to get my hands on…but in the mean time, I’ll keep rocking their Dame Harness Bootie…which I am wearing in the images below and am in LOVE with!”
