A Colorful Week in South America: VerverWerks on the Road
VerverWerks on the South American Road
Last week was a week of adventure, design & partnership development in Ecuador & Colombia. Upon arriving in Ecuador, the team & I hit the ground running to finally put the wheels in motion on some new straps I've been eager to create. We sat down with new partners to brainstorm on color schemes & are ecstatic with the first samples we've seen (the beautiful Ecuadorian weather & nature were a great source of inspiration this trip)! We're happy to say that VerverWerks will soon be offering a new type of woven strap (for bags, cameras & guitars) with a more rustic feel, as well as new color options in our original strap style!
As promised, we've also updated our website with individually-sold BAG STRAPS to combine with ANY bag. Check the link below for more...
NEW Leather Goods Designs
I also met with the team responsible for production of our leather goods to discuss new product; many of our new ideas are based upon what you've been asking for. We're all excited for versatile fanny packs, duffel bags, totes & more coming soon!
From there, I visited with the artisan partner who handcrafts our fun fringe earrings to create more exclusive VerverWerks designs for Spring. We'll be expanding the Spring earring collection available online in the next few weeks. See the photos below for a sneak peek of what's coming!
After Ecuador, I also ventured to Colombia in search of raw materials for production with the help of a guide. It's hard to describe, but Colombia has a certain palpable magic to it that makes it my favorite country in South America so far, & like always, I enjoyed the heck out of being there! A little bit of Colombian coffee, some arepas & that can-do Colombian attitude, & we were on our way & getting the lay of the land. Driving through such a lush, semi-tropical region where the mountains touch the sky was a true treat in & of itself!
After traveling, it was time to get back to our weekend events! Last Saturday, we popped up with our friends Sage Soul ATX at "The Picnic" off Barton Springs & enjoyed a fun afternoon of live music & beautiful weather. The event featured unique Austin vendors like Get Stoned 512 & Mercedez Rex, & we hope to join Sage Soul for a SXSW event in March... Stay tuned!
