Everything in the SVSC is handcrafted in our downtown Tucson studio by artist and artisan Alta Cain. Each piece is inspired by the remarkable and unmistakable colors and textures found only in the Southwest : the incredible sunrises and sunsets, the way light is reflected off the mountains, the way the desert comes alive during the monsoons.

The vibrant aesthetic of the Southwest is reimagined in a contemporary setting – fashionable and yet timeless pieces such as our bolo ties and earrings. Even if you are elsewhere, the best parts of the Southwest can be with you anywhere.

Alta Cain is a professional artist and jack-of-many-trades – creating everything from painting and printmaking to metal work and sculpture. Much of her work explores the unexpected places where beauty hides – such as the radiant flowers that survive the harshest desert, surrounded by brittle thorns. For more examples of her work, find her on instagram.

The SVSC is always looking for independently owned, curated boutiques and shops that are interested in representing our work by carrying our pieces in their boutique. Please contact us here.
