Granted sister and I are from an old gunslinging town (Corsicana, Texas!)  that was home to the first oil well west of the Mississippi... great old tales range from shoot em ups and boot legging back in the day. Things have calmed down a quite a lot since the days of prohibition but there are still a lot of things that make our town home. People still quilt, they can and put up vegetables and jellies, and they love being in the country. We bring a little of our hometown to you with our hand sewn horseshoes. Our mother was a huge horsewoman and sister Su spent a lot of time riding in her late 20s when she lived in Cali. Sadly I spent more time getting bucked off but we all march to a different beat. 

Our horseshoes are recycled from a farrier... the nails are removed by hand and they are power washed to get all the "work" off of them. Once they are dry our friend Pat hand sews them like a piece of art. She says its easy but I have tried and there is nothing easy about working around curves and bends. It's a true labor of love. Our handprinted fabrics are perfect in the smaller scales and so that is why we limit the patterns to the shoes. We can make a batch for wedding gifts or you can pick one up for a new sweetheart or for that kiddo heading off to college. Who doesn't need a little luck?? We haven't made them in a while but in case you want to see some vintage press... have a looksy on decor8 #decor8 and Design Sponge #designsponge
