Local Designer Spotlight: Salty Western

Here at AX we take pride in supporting local Hawaii designers and finding the most unique and quality brands to showcase in the store. We recently came across the beautiful look book of the new handbags & accessory line by Salty Western and immediately fell in love with its brand. The lush landscapes of the Big Island are shown through miles of open road and cattle land, contrasted with the beautiful imagery of the black sand beach of Waipio Valley. Designer Taira Cran finds inspiration for her line in what she explains as, "the lush textures in nature, wild ranch lands, and the untamed seas of Hawaii." All of Salty Westerns products are hand crafted and one of a kind made from quality leather. Each piece are hand dyed, carved and hand stamped giving each piece its own uniqueness. Let us take you along for the adventure with Salty Western as we show off some of our favorite images from the look book. (Shot by Coconut Comradery.)
