Westcoast Craft 2016 // The Makers We Love
Walking into the open play field that San Francisco calls Westcoast Craft Fair — our team was astounded by the mixed variety this year. All good and no bad so where did we start…
As the halls were lined with seemingly brilliant talent, we’re here to mention some key hitters that really stood out to us as we floated the floor. If you haven’t met these couple of individuals then here’s to being acquainted.
Golden Pony Workshop // goldenponyworkshop.com
Seeing the array of necklaces, hats, and all sort of accessories coming from mastermind Elizabeth Prost, soon to be hitting shelves are her newest ponytail additions laced in sterling silver bindings. The cross between humanitarian and luxury has gotten even better.
Future Glory Co. // futureglory.co
The beauty of what Future Glory Co is doing brings a breath of fresh air to an already stale taste of Bay Area “makers.” Mixing metals, marbles, weights, and shapes — getting a bag that fits your innate style comes as a no brainer to the talented mind of Theresa Lee. Don’t go too H.A.M on her pieces. Falling in love is completely appropriate here.
Somi Apparel // somiapparel.com
The genius behind Somi Apparel, Alysia Valles, is killing the intimates game with her innate charm and attention to practical design. Not only looking effortlessly chic, the quality and consciousness to design make her a standout at this year’s WCC.
Svensk Co Candles // svenskco.com
Smelling chic doesn’t have to come at a high price, Sofia Svensk is producing high quality candled jars at prices that have us doing back flips. It’s hard enough resisting the urge to purchase all her delicate scents in one sitting. Being one of the only true candle makers at WCC, she’s a gem amongst the bunch.
So until next year WCC, we’re ready for ya.
