Yip – its no secret we’re kind of pro collaboration around here and equally pro the beautiful connections allowed by social media.
So we were very keen to share this new little collection by New Zealand based jewellery label; Walter Crow and leather accessories brand; Good Winter considering it was born from a mutual following on instagram (yus!!!)
“If you follow someone long enough you begin to understand their work and creative process. We had admired the Good Winter team’s work for a while and thought that we were on the same page in terms of attention to detail and quality,” explains Walter Crow director Peter Bowden.
Having made the first move and sent off a private message it was only a matter of time until Jared, founder of Good Winter replied to Peter and the ball got rolling.
Late nights in Jared’s workshop lead to a range of New Zealand made travel goods inspired by humanity’s thirst for discovery. Jared explains “Working with Walter Crow on this capsule allowed us to experiment with exciting new tools and textures. We were able to explore different methods of design and manufacturing and have learnt a lot from the process.”
The collaborative collection is made up of three utility based products – a passport wallet, key holder and utility roll crafted from chestnut and oiled vegie tan hides. They are going to only get better with use and age. A modern collectible I would suggest!
