Meeting David Boot at Brennan’s Bit & Bridle

There is nothing more exciting for a maker than visiting another makers studio. We have developed a working relationship with Brennan’s Bit & Bridle in Bridgehampton, where we will be having a Trunk Show on November 7th.

This past summer Toshiki dropped by Brennan’s to chat with Master Saddle maker David Boot, whose studio is on site. David was born in London England, began his saddlery apprenticeship there at the age of 15, with George Parker & Sons, Saddlers to The Queen Mother.

David himself later earned this honor.

He and his partner Lucy now are full time residents of Long Islands East End.

Remembering The Hampton Classic Horse Show

Everybody is asking me how the show was, who was exhibiting, the atmosphere, etc. etc. about The Hampton Classic in Bridgehampton NY last week, so I thought I would throw up some pictures.

It’s a sampling of my view, as a slideshow.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


We are home, mentally full, & physically exhausted from an eight day show in Bridgehampton.

Lots happened.

Sales, weather (all kinds), meeting many new people, fishing & beach time, viewing glamour, Hamptons shopping, eating great food………

One of the highlights of the week was being invited to a party at Snake Hollow Studio, and getting to meet the artist Lynn Matsuoka, and birdhouse/furniture designer Keith Barker, whose warm hospitality and group of friends will be fondly remembered.

Lynn visited our booth at The Classic with her son Ryunosuke Matsuoka (Sen restaurant in Sag Harbor)

and  friend

who brilliantly positioned herself behind our Magenta Jacket!


New Shearling Colors

This was 5 months ago at our Long Island Studio,

We have been working in two new shearling colors this summer, magenta & camel

Shearlings at Craft Westport

Long Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, we have all been thru sooooo much with Sandy. I hope everyone is getting caught up on life, and has a chance to get out this weekend and support the arts in Westport Connecticut.  I will have coats and accessories in shearlings, velvet and leather tote bags, and a few other surprises. Peek at some hangers for SAMPLE SALE pricing. So get a jump on some holiday spirit and buy local.  Other talent there? Jewelry artist Louise Fisher Cozzi, and the whimsical ceramics of Lisa Scroggins.
