Fort Collins – Land of Bikes, Beer & more beer

Chances are if you’ve visited Fort Collins or live locally, you’ve spent a day riding bikes, going on brewery tours and hanging out by the Cache la Poudre river. So we thought we’d create our 2nd summer mini lookbook as an homage to the two things that make the Fort Collins community run… bikes & beer.

Take a spin down the Poudre bike trail to New Belgium brewing, then continue on to another local fave with the best patio in town, Odell Brewing, and then take a detour back to Old Town Fort Collins, where you can come visit the people who make your tees and beanies, yours truly. See you soon!

SIA wrap-up

So it’s been a couple weeks since the Snowsports Industries of America show ended, but it has taken us that long to catch up and process after the whirlwind of a show!  This was our 2nd year at SIA so we kinda knew what to expect this time around, but it is always insane.   Load in only took about 500 trips between the 2 of us thru the service elevator since the convention center won’t let you use a dolly (weirdest rule ever) so we were a little tired after move-in day.

But even though we’d been there before, getting that badge with your name and Exhibiting Member at the bottom was still pretty exciting. IMG_3308

The first day of the show was wrapped up with lots of beers (happy hour starts at 5pm on the show floor) then on to pickle vodka at Red Square.

Cutest product of the weekend?  The tiniest size of the Burton learn to ride snowboard boots for all those up and coming groms.

Product I wanted to steal from the show floor?  Jess Kimura’s Capita board from next year… I mean… lightning bolts and flying kittens.  IMG_3343

Day 3′s happy hour was filled with a little game of LCR at the Burton LTR booth that I didn’t win but I did get LTR dice.    IMG_3348

And of course no SIA show is complete without a little snow.

We <3 Handmade

We have met a lot of people recently who were not aware of the handcrafted elements that make our clothing so special. Well, it all started when Suzanne decided to start printing tees herself on the kitchen floor of her studio apt back in 2005. Almost a decade later, with the addition of a storefront and some better equipment, the idea of In-House manufacturing is stronger than ever. Yes we take the time to print up every shirt just for you right in the back of our shop. We make all of our beanies and headbands in house as well. Countless hours have been spent crocheting and knitting but it has been a very cool experience pioneering our own production process that we take so much pride in. We are very excited for the release of our ’14/’15 line this fall and we have some goodies in there so be on the lookout. Viva La Handmade Revolution! photo
