Into The Woods Holiday Market

Steel Life participated in a local holiday market with Lila B. Design a few weeks ago in downtown Bend, Oregon.  After hosting a DIY Wreath Making Workshop with San Francisco’s Baylor Chapman, we whisked our products downtown to the historic Liberty Theater for the weekend’s event.

Wallis Creative and Found Natural Goods did an amazing job putting this event together! We were thrilled to be a part of it with other local artists including Karen Ruane, Ciera Rose and Katie Daisy.

Collaborating on a booth with Lila B. was great fun!  We were able to offer our ‘Small Batch’ Hangers and new Catchalls to attendees, along with Steel Life’s main collection. What a great way to kick off the holiday season!

Small Batch Originals

Steel Life is THRILLED to announce our first ‘Small Batch Original’, the Boho Modern hanging planter!  Steel Life’s Small Batch collection allows us to create limited-edition products with other local artists and designers, with the focus of keeping overhead at a minimum to extend that savings onto our customer base.  Maya Moon Designs is a local, handmade leather bag company in Bend, Oregon.  Owner and artist, Maya Bauer, joined Steel Life to create the Boho Modern hanger by dipping into her unique and luscious leather collection.  We are honored to have her talents showcased with our work.

mayaSteel Life’s Small Batches will only be sold through our Facebook, Instagram and Etsy sites.
