CHRIS HUGHES

OMAHA, NE

For years I’ve collected and sold antiques, vintage clothing, and military collectibles. I bought a used commercial sewing machine to repair old horsehide jackets and WWII field gear. During the process of getting familiar with industrial sewing, I designed a few items like a waxed canvas lunch tote, an upscale grocery tote, and a tool tote that doubles as a weekender bag. My style incorporates the things I love: Americana, natural materials, simple design, and confident craftsmanship.
