Desert & Denim

Back in February, bang smack in the middle of tradeshow season, our team headed out to Joshua Tree for a different kind of tradeshow. Desert & Denim, founded by the folks behind Juniper Ridge, is the anti-tradeshow, tradeshow. A select group of artisanal and heritage (and mostly Made in the USA) brands showcase their wares at Mojave Sands Motel alongside an itinerary that included live music, an art show, workshops and the opportunity to shoot guns at t-shirts (more on that shortly)

It was a great opportunity to discover new brands, explore Joshua Tree and make lots of new friends, click through to learn more.

Shooting Guns with Totally Blown

One of the trip highlights was getting to head into a remote part of Joshua Tree and shoot shotguns with the crew from Totally Blown. We’ll have a feature on them coming up soon – but in short, these crazy kids make fab clothes and the then shoot the crap out of them with shot guns, creating a really unique distressed look.

Overall it was a really great experience and our team is looking forward to seeing even more in years to come.
