The origin of Blaine Halvorson started with his youth in a small cabin in Montana. The skilled trade of working with your hands is unfortunately, turning into something of the past.
“Blaine Halvorson is a hands-on creator that dreams up experiences, spaces and tactile collections that are mood, memory and idea, distilled down to their essence and transferred into materials – thread and leather, flannel and canvas, cotton and metal, brick and steel.”
Blaine has quite a history before Made Worn. In 1998, he launched Junk Food Clothing—a global leader in vintage and music nostalgia apparel, which he led to its successful public offering in 2005.
In 2013 he founded his luxury brand, MadeWorn, featuring one of a kind, exquisitely crafted pieces – hand-tooled shoes with a distinct patina of age and romance, vintage Rolexes hand-carved and etched with delicate filigree, rock n’ roll concert tees that resonate with adolescent angst.
“The things I make are for the purist. I wanna set the holy grail standard for American Craftsmanship.” – BH
Focusing on sustainable manufacturing and locally sourced materials, MadeWorn is one of the few companies that can boast that all their creations are absolutely and entirely – American made.
Walking through his space: a 360-degree world, part designer’s studio, cobbler’s workshop, art museum, and concert space. The 12,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor compound is a meticulously curated dreamscape, offering products that embody an intimacy with raw materials and hand processes.
