The Moccassin Maker
Spiro Creations feature in the latest issue, with the amazing story of how Barb began making moccassins in the first place, back in Winnepeg, Manitoba. Barb (originally from Canada) and Isaac Morton now live in Auckland, where they continue to create beautifully crafted, original and one-of-a-kind leather goods - Barb stitching and cutting and dreaming up new designs; Isaac (a jeweller by trade) crafting the wooden buttons, leather leaf details and running the business end of things. The gorgeous images in the interview were taken by Matthew Zylstra Sawatsky, but I wanted to share some pictures we couldn't fit in the magazine, as well as my favourites from the Spiro collection - these fantastic purple ankle booties - perfect for festival going. Imagine the dancing that would be done in these shoes!
