Inspired by the Cowichan-style sweater characterized by the heavy knit, shawl collar and distinctive design, which usually includes geometric shapes or wildlife such as whales, eagles, deer, etc.
If you’re not familiar with the term Cowichan, you’re almost certainly familiar with the style. These sweaters have been worn by everyone from Steve McQueen to The Dude in The Big Lebowski. More than just chunky knits with expressive designs, however, they’ve also got some deep history.
True Cowichans are made by Coast Salish knitters in British Columbia, Canada. As the story goes, the sweater style comes out of a cultural exchange in the 1850s, between natives in the Cowichan Valley and European settlers.
Our take has a more 70s emphasis and incorporates two smaller bronc motifs on the front and one large bronc on the back, to add a more western lean to it. Instead of the zipped front commonly used for this sweater style we opted for real leather braided buttons.
The Bolero jacket tracks its origin back to twelfth-century Spain where cattle herders wore low-crowned hats, bolero jackets, sashes, tight-fitting trousers, and spurred boots. The dress of gauchos and vaqueros may have originated in Spain but new articles of dress were added because of the various environments in which cattle herders performed their work.
The Vaqueros of Mexico is considered the most direct ancestor of the American cowboy and in the cultural and technological merge between native tribes, Spanish and Northern European settlers in the North American South West, a new form of dress developed into what is defined present day western wear.
The traditional Bolero jacket is short or waist-length due to its horseback heritage and adorned with embroiders and embellishments. The 50 and 60s versions were usually done in Rayon twill, however we opted for 350gsm 100% wool fabric in our “winter” edition.
