orSlow: Made for Long Affection

Conceived from a love for vintage clothing and a desire to create garments that will stand the test of time, orSlow was founded in 2005 by Ichiro Nakatsu. Taking cues from American work wear and military garments produced in the 50's and 60's, the collection is simple yet superior in terms of fabric and construction. In our first delivery we've received some of the brand's most iconic pieces including their Standard Denim 105, US Army Trouser, 1950's Coverall and both the 50's Western Shirt and Button Down in used denim wash.

Sisal & Tow

We're pleased to announce an exhibition of new work from local taxidermist/artist/designer Becca Barnet. Her studio, Sisal & Tow, creates one-of-a-kind work for private collectors, businesses and public spaces.  Please join us on July 24th for a reception from 5-8pm.

"Sisal & Tow's new body of work for Indigo & Cotton is a detail-oriented series reminiscent of a miniature natural history museum. The collection aims to send viewers to a macro world through an in depth look at preserved insects and birds, realistic plants and detailed drawings in pencil. Delicately exploring the relationship of the masculine and feminine in nature, the series also takes inspiration from the collecting phenomenon and presentation of specimens during the Victorian era."
