Each product is made from raw materials and sourced in the U.S. We take pride in hand picking each Pendleton® Wool pattern and pairing it with the most natural leather hide. Leather hides are hand selected and sourced in the U.S. Every bag, wallet, clutch, journal, and tote is hand cut from patterns we have created. Every strap on our bags and journals are hand cut from huge hides of leather. No two items are the same! All items are sewn by Miranda on an old industrial Consew 206 sewing machine that we purchase used with many years of life left on it. All items are made with minimal tools and small amount of supplies. One product can take hours up to days to make. We do not rush our process and enjoy making one of a kind items. Products are made in a small room at our house in New Mexico with our toddler by our side.
Meet the maker
Mtn + Pine is run by owner leather and metalsmith Miranda, her husband and son, from their small home in the mountains of New Mexico. Each piece is carefully handcrafted in their home while Miranda balances taking care of their son, who is 5 years old. Currently living in the southwest much of Miranda's inspiration comes from hikes in the mountains and nature walks with her son.
Mtn + Pine strives to use only American supplies, such as Wickett and Craig and Horween Leather along with Pendleton® Wool from Oregon. We have developed some great relationships and look forward to working with other small business owners. We find it very important to support other makers.
Our roots are a bit tangled. Miranda was born in Minnesota and raised part of her youth there, until moving to Arizona and finishing high school and part of college in this beautiful state. Then, moving on to New Mexico where she met her husband. Her husbands roots are also a bit tangled and he's originally from Michigan. Miranda finished her Masters degree in Exercise Science and Psychology and began working with the local University's Athletic Department as the Athletic Compliance Coordinator. Miranda wanted to stay home with their son after he was born and quickly got to work opening their business to achieve this dream. Mtn + Pine will be 5 years old in April of 2021!
The Midwest plays a part in Mtn + Pine as it runs through each of them. However, the mountains are home among the tall pines. Inspiration comes from each place and we look forwarding to expressing that more from our future work.
Thank you for the support of our small business. Your support helps our dream of owning a small business and staying home with our son. We strive to provide the best products with U.S. materials all hand made from my home in New Mexico. How it's made matters!
