Fort Lonesome is a design-forward custom western wear and chain-stitch embroidery studio based in Austin, TX. In the early 2000s Kathie Sever found herself rebuilding and making functional a 100 year old chainstich embroidery machine - an artform that has a legacy of connectedness with much of western wear's most famous tailors.
After meeting Kathie at The Loop (as she is an avid runner) we knew we had to work with her. We presented Kathie our 'Jog Your Mind' holiday capsule idea and she added the Ft. Lonesome energy and individuality to each piece. With her team, together they hand cranked 15 hoodies and 48 beanies each unique.
Kathie and her team of designers have worked collaboratively with artists such as Chris Stapleton, Post Malone, Miranda Lambert, Leslie Jordan just to name a few to "create pieces that slowly and carefully consider the symbiosis of art, narrative, and technicianship".
**The collection has 3 main designs yet each piece is a one-of-kind. Some fabrics are individually hand-dyed resulting in slight variation in color, fabric, and trim**
