Canoe is a modern leather goods line hand crafted by Natalie Davis in Austin, TX. Founded in 2009, they're inspired by vintage workwear, well-worn boots, and Outlaw country music. Their line explores pattern through tooled, carved, burned, and hand dyed leather accessories, from jewelry to home wares. Canoe goods are crafted with a sartorial eye and workhorse materials to last a lifetime, made proudly in the USA.
Natalie is a graphic designer, artist, and educator who has been crafting goods from a young age. She received her BA in Design|Media Arts from UCLA and her MFA in 2-D Design from Cranbrook. In 2007, she launched Miss Natalie, a home goods line, based on her love of pattern and tactile design. Canoe continues that exploration of pattern on leather, using traditional tooling and construction techniques to create modern forms. She is a proud member of the Longhorn Trail Leather Guild of Austin, TX and teaches workshops on leather tooling.
