Klaire hails from cowboy country in rural Dillon, Montana, and is a lifelong artist and creative. Here’s a bit of what Klaire shared with us:
My roots are in fine art and combined with my love for the Western lifestyle was born the vision for my business. I started by painting floral designs on women’s western fashion hats and have had success selling them in local art studios. Seeing that people love the product, I realized that I would like to do more. I can be more authentic in the products I produce… Working with mass-produced, cheaply made wool hats doesn’t align with my standards and conscience. I desire to combat fast fashion and my goal is to become a milliner and build my own hats, from high-quality materials, that is 100% my own brand. I want to produce a product that lasts a lifetime, gives one a sense of individuality, and cultivates love and pride for the state of Montana in the form of wearable art.
