Osborn Design is run by Carla & Aaron Osborn, atop a warehouse building in Greenpoint Brooklyn. The studio is a working environment where fine art and commerical art are merged into one, created, and produced. The basic inspiration is drawn from human relationships, the vibrancy of life within its conflict and resolve, and artisanal grit. Much of OSBORN’s genius seems to stem from their mantra which is posted on their site: “SIMPLIFY SIMPLIFY.”
The-up-and-coming brand showcases an evolving line of products, and through the continuous collaboration with friends, economically disadvantaged artisans, creative entities, and with each other, this grassroots style company seeks now, more than ever, to embody hope in their design.
Osborn owns its own production workshop located in Guatemala, currently employing 25 artisans and 4 administrators. Working personally with the production team to ensure high quality handcrafted shoes, the OSBORN crew operates the entire collection using fair trade with only locally sourced materials. This is AMAZING!
All the materials for each shoe are individually hand-cut and and each shoe is assembled by hand. Each and every Osborn shoe represents not only a fashionable statement, but also a step in the right direction in respects to world employment and sourcing standards. We here at SOLESTRUCK.com are so stocked to be introducing the line to you…and did we mention the above style…the OXFORD in Italian Floral is a 100% solestruck exclusive. This is our colorway on this shoe! Feel the exclusivity raining down on you! Stay tuned as we will offering more styles from this new brand favorite!
