We’ve long admired the work of our friends at Winter Session. Their dedication to craftsmanship and thoughtful design aesthetic inspires our work here at DRIFT. Unable to find a well-made eyeglass case to complement our frames, we approached Tanya and Roy about a potential collaboration. What started with cocktails and napkin sketches evolved over time into a beautifully unique design.
The cases are made from vegetable tanned, waxed Horween Leather - processed down the street from our studio here in Chicago. Designed with symmetrical flaps and solid brass studs to keep your glasses secure, each piece is hand-stitched at Winter Session’s Denver workshop and retail space, The Outpost.
