More on Cowboys: The Pistol Holster

(8 years ago)
While researching the Campbell machine mentioned earlier today, I came across an absurd amount of leather cowboy pistol holsters--not antiques being sold secondhand, but new ones being manufactured today. I wondered what could possibly sustain such an enormous supply, and soon found the answer: The uniquely American pasttime of Cowboy Action Shooting, a/k/a "The Ol' Bang 'n Clang," whereby participants use single-action pistols and rifles to engage of contests of speed and accuracy. (There's a seven-minute vid at the bottom of this entry taking a look at the activity.)While leather holsters back in the Wild West days were undoubtedly handmade, today's successors are made on machines like the Campbell, and there's a lot more to making them than folding and stitching leather. A good holster will be "wet-formed," then allowed to dry while a plug shaped like the gun it's intended for is placed inside, ensuring a perfect fit. A leather strap, as seen in the holster above by Circle KB, latches around the hammer and prevents it from being accidentally cocked, providing a simple and effective safety feature.(more...)

Sewing Machines for Cowboys

(8 years ago)
The American cowboy has a lot of gear to wrangle, from horse harnesses and saddles to pistol holsters and belts. All of that stuff needs to be tough, which is why leather is the material of choice. And stitching up the thicknesses required calls for a particularly bad-ass machine, one that uses mechanical principles different from the standard needle-pierce sewing machine. Thus we have the Campbell Lockstitch Sewing Machine, a "needle & awl" machine designed in the 1880s and still in use today (albeit with an electric motor added) to process heavy leather:(more...)

It's Not Easy Being Green: Brazil

(8 years ago)
"Last Monday, our Brazilian friend Claudia offered to drive us to the airport...until she realized that Monday was her "car-free day." Cars in São Paulo have to stay off the road one day a week, a regulation that was introduced to reduce the city's heavy traffic. Even the city's own mayor uses a helicopter in order to be on time for his meetings. Of course it's a pity that we lost our ride to the airport but somehow we appreciated the sustainable sound of this solution to reduce heavy traffic in a city where traffic is a monster. That is, until our friend explained that this "sustainable idea" resulted in most people buying two cars allowing them to (again) drive all week long. It's not easy being green."–Observations on São Paulo, on our way to ArgentinaTwo designers, six months and a dozen countries.São Paulo's traffic rule is just one the everyday discoveries for the It's Not Easy Being Green project, an initiative by two designers exploring sustainability in materials and design around the world.A year ago, Aart van Bezooyen and Paula Raché decided to embark on a unique project focusing on sustainability in materials and design. Instead of the usual desk research we started planning a creative journey around the world. After a lot of thinking and pinpointing countries to visit, it was time to get an around-the-world ticket and to start writing friends and colleagues for local contacts and country information.Today, It's Not Easy Being[..]

With the Salone less than two weeks away, we're pleased to present a preview of Milan's own Studio Fabio Novembre, a pair of new designs for Casamania.First up, we have "Strip," a rather voluptuous molded chair.

Alternately, it's like a magnified, simplified cross-section... but of what?(more...)
