Just as I finished sharing my Southwest Pilgrimage with you, I headed back to Los Angeles to work with a few clients and spend some time getting to know some new artisans that I have recently connected with. What started as a one week trip ended up as three, and there was no time for me to check in with the blog while I was away. But I have so much good stuff from my trip to share with you!!!! I had some amazing studio visits with Lovecraft Leather, Henry Duarte, Kieley Kimmel and All Roads and they were all so inspiring.
One of my favorite parts of this LA trip was working and hanging out with the Heyoka Leather ladies of the canyon. I’ve written about these bad ass ladies before and their amazing handcrafted leather, but this time I get to share their latest venture with you: The Heyoka Hideout. For the past few weeks, I helped these ladies create what will now be their studio/showroom and store in Topanga Canyon. They acquired a great space right in the heart of Topanga and transformed the space into their ideal workshop and lifestyle store. I felt so honored and blessed to be able to help them pull this together and am so proud of how everything turned out for their opening this past Saturday. The Heyoka Hideout is a true reflection of their combined style and showcases their work alongside other artisans that they have come to know along their path including Daughter of the Sun, Folklorica, Naked Eye Beauty, All Roads, Wild at Heart Vintage, Levi’s Vintage Clothing, Bandit Brand, Leslie Crow Jewelry and so many more to come. This is only the beginning for The Heyoka Hideout, stay tuned for more as they take over my favorite part of LA, Topanga Canyon.
Next time you are in the area, make sure you stop in and check this spot out. They have big plans to help bring together the retail community in Topanga and will be showcasing and partnering with many more artisans from California to Texas.
