Stetson USA: The Harris Sisters

This is the second time I’ve been lucky enough to work with The Harris Sisters out of Pendleton, Oregon. I met them while doing this shoot for Ginew and jumped on the opportunity to work with them again. Here’s there Bio if you haven’t heard of them before:

“HSC is made up of three sisters Katie, Anna & Mary. HSC was started from us wanting to create plateau beadwork while keeping our style as traditional as possible. We have a love for vintage and pre 1950 beadwork. Katie creates beaded buckskin dresses, purses, horse regalia, beaded belts, beaded bracelets & earrings. In the last couple years Anna started tooling leather because she needed an artistic outlet and had a love for the westernlifestyle growing up in Pendleton, home of the Pendleton Round Up. She crossed paths with her now mentor Pedro Pedrini, and has continued to develop her skill in leathercraft recently finishing a set of fully tooled tapaderos. Even in her tooling style she creates our traditional plateau flowers through her leather and also has a love for California style. Mary is the youngest and the main model, sewer & is also a beadworker. We love and want to continue that vibe from that strong era of beadwork where nothing matched but everything matched. HSC sisters are from the Nez Perce, Cayuse, Umatilla and Karuk tribes.”

Tradition and Family

I was so excited to be able to share the sister’s story through stetson and bring awareness to the work they’re doing not only protecting their culture but also innovating and moving it forward. Being able to help share that is really something I cherish. The whole family is fantastic. Good souls in my book.
