A new book celebrating Texas made goods has arrived…and just in time for the holidays. From cowboy boots to snowboards, Texas manufactures just about anything. A brief description of the coffee table tome from the jacket:
“This beautifully produced, photo-rich book showcases the variety of outstanding product brands based in the State of Texas. From cold brew coffee and ukuleles, to airboats and bolo ties, Texas Works presents vibrant, original photography of nearly 100 products from one of the world’s largest and most thriving economies.
Interspersed among the product photos are portraits of 20 talented Texans behind the brands, as you’d find them at their workplaces across the Lone Star State. Short Features provide insight to 9 of these makers, including profiles on two bespoke denim makers; an artisan chocolatier; the owner of a football factory; a broom squire; a craft bourbon distiller; a charitable leather bag maker; a quilter; and a vintage fashion designer.”
Thanks to the folks that put this new book together, Hamilton Shirts is thrilled to be included along side all these esteemed Texas companies.
