NO PLASTIC - NO ELASTIC!
Artists Shanti and Erica MacEwan begin with vintage found objects, pieces of cowhide, brass adornments, antique do-dads and whatchamacallits.
All of the stitching is painstakingly hand done and with a double lock stitch.
The leather base is a full mask, not two eye pieces connected by a little strip of leather, allowing a comfortable fit and giving the artists a solid base to build on.
Everything is drilled and bolted on, never glued. All the filigree Victorian accents, studs and fasteners are of brass.
The armatures move and the lenses work and line up.
We even make the main goggle lenses, they are UV filtering shatter resistant Plexiglas. If you are at Burning Man and a sand storm comes up, these will actually protect your eyes!
No two goggles are alike, they are incredible, wearable SteamPunk Art.
All and any color on the sturdy cowhide leather has been hand painted by the artists.
Thank you for traveling in the emporium.
