THE HALF PAST
Handmade with artisan expertise | not mass produced | hand tooled | vegetable tanned leather |
Monterey is a sun-drenched coastal road trip in a longboard stacked kombi, compelled by wanderlust and nostalgia from your parents’ stories and old faded photographs, a journey back to the ’69 Woodstock dance floor, for the vintage lovers and gypsy dancers.
Inspired by my mum's cane chest treasure-trove, overflowing with vintage clothing and accessories from the quintessential 60’s and 70’s; unique fabrics, intricate lace, hand embroidery and fine detailing that hasn’t aged a day, and is passed through generations.
From a time where today’s fast fashions and mass productions were non-existent, and individual style and personality was adorned and exuded.
Monterey utilises the expertise of leather artisans with age-old techniques, completely handmade, hand tooled and every gemstone hand selected, ensuring each piece becomes a part of your family’s ‘cane basket’ too.
Join us and be transported to a place and time we dream about, where quality and individuality becomes reality.
