local love: hardware couture.

hardware couture


meet Julie, designer and founder of hardware couture - a local artisan from Houston.  i'm always inspired by creative individuals so i was especially excited to go visit her at her workshop and check out her goods.  so the theme - all the materials can be found at a hardware store and she hand makes them herself in her shop.

BUSY LADY.   i understand how that feels.   start ups.  ANYWAYS.

 it's pretty much wearable art.  it may be a little bit quirky, but definitely unique   there's a small variety of bags and bracelets for now.  imagine having actual hardware for your arm candy.   too bad they were too big for my wrists, but i nabbed the 'river oaks' tote and while there helped with suggestions on configuration of the shoulder strap and handles.    faux wood bag? why yes please.  astro turf lining?  why not?   i'd say this bag is picnic ready.

if you're in town and interested you can find these goods at the spacetaker WHAM event on Nov 16-18 or at roundtable goods in the Heights.
