Ginew and Duckworth teamed up to offer a durable and soft wool hat to keep you warm on the coldest day. Each hat is tightly knit with 5 OZ of 100% merino wool (twice the wool use to make a knit hat). We use 100% Helle Rambouillet merino wool, grown in a natural environment, raised in the Gravelly Mountains, and 100% built in the USA. This is the softest and warmest wool hat you will ever own.
The Horween Leather Company has set the standard for the highest quality leathers since 1905. All leather is processed in the Horween tannery in Chicago, USA. Herman Oak® leather has been made in Missouri, USA since the late 1800's. Herman Oak® produces some of the most beautiful and durable vegetable-tanned leathers available.

Each buckle is individually fabricated using industrial-strength, solid brass. The brass is cut, heated, formed, forged, soldered, carefully-finished, and stamped by hand using time-honored metal-smith techniques. Each buckle is the culmination of unwavering commitment to durable materials and high-quality craftsmanship.
To try something fun, we've teamed up with our friends at Wood & Faulk to make these limited camp stools. Without fail, we bring our camp stools with us on every adventure (they've made excellent travel companions in Japan & Europe!). Each camp stool is made with seats covered with our Ginew® "WE WALK TOGETHER" wool blanket fabric woven for us by PENDLETON®. Pendleton wool. Each seat pattern is cut from the same material, however your stool may look slightly different than the picture provided. Be it near or far; home or abroad; you will love the addition of the camp stool to your gear...and fire side chats.
By happenstance we met Corey Begay - Diné (Navajo) artist - in Portland, ORE. Immediately, we were drawn to their unique skill set in articulating a contemporary Indigenous existence which is simultaneous informed by traditional teachings. It is this duality where many of us exist - living out our lives in a contemporary context, while being ever-informed by our traditional values and believes. Ultimately - we create, we exist, we move forward. This is our path.
Returning from the Warm Springs community in Central, ORE - we crested a hill on the road to be encountered by a large black bear walking Westward. No one was startled - looking at each other in this brief encounter and then moving forward as our paths diverged. This year we have been thinking about this encounter - about messengers, teachers, relatives, ancestors, and how we will one day be ancestors. How will we be remembered? What will we leave behind? In what ways will we do so?
Corey Begay says, "There isn't a direct translation of the word Naasgó in English. In Navajo, the primary meaning is "the action of moving forward" and it can also be used to describe persevering, taking steps, and sentiments like these. Below the Bear is the Land and above the bear is the Cloud, which can be seen in the day, and the Star, which can be seen in the night. Though the bear is usually a night-walker animal, the presence of the cloud here means that this bear is a lighter day-traveler.
The glasses signify modern culture, any living thing's character/personality. I like to use the glasses in my artwork as a somewhat of signature for myself because I wear glasses and that glasses allows one to look through a lens or frame for a better vision."
