Beginning the Studio Journal

The journey is the greatest reward, not the destination.

Journeys West Studio

We are very fortunate to be based in the Rocky Mountains west of Denver, Colorado. The rugged, natural landscape surrounding our studio serves as the genesis for our design aesthetic. These tactile elements - inherent in genuine materials such as leather, hammered metal, stones, alpaca wool, hemp and cotton textiles, and tribal inspired weavings  - evoke the spirit for adventure found in the American West. Featuring rustic buffalo and cow hides, and designed using fur, textiles and adornments that have been reclaimed and repurposed, these bags exemplify the individual personality and exuberance of those who ventured into the unknown. 

But we also take inspiration from the urban street scenes in Boulder and Denver, infusing our designs with our interpretation of elements of mountain Rustic, 50’s Rockabilly, Cowgirl Chic, and of course, our signature style… Western Bohemian.
