If you’re not familiar with tramp art, it was a unique form of craftsmanship that was prevalent during the Great Depression and pervasive in a lot of the décor throughout the Adirondacks Great Camps. The method used chips of readily available wood (palettes, cigar boxes, etc.) arranged to build dimensional geometric designs from frames to boxes to furniture. That’s kind of the look and vibe we were channeling with the Tramp Art Jacket.
“With the Tramp Art Jacket, we wanted to capture the essence of that aesthetic,” Cheryl explained. “Rather than wood, we used contrasting leather lacing to recreate the geometric and dimensional appeal of tramp art against a canvas of soft suede. And then adding the rounded metallic studs complemented the straight-edges of the leather shapes for an all-around American crafted look.”
Once again, a wearable work of art.
