Welcome to the americanclothingshop.com
We are husband and wife with a boy called Cedrick and a boy called Sean. We live and work in Florida, near the seaside in palm beach . Our work is made from old things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, longlasting treasures. We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone.
americanclothingshop began without a plan, a fortunate pairing of two minds, different but in sync. Both my wife and i and I have a fervor for history, though we each unearth our passions in different ways. I, norah, love the romantic imaginings of what once was and the effects time and stories have on materials and objects. Though not military-minded, I am an invader; mostly of abandoned houses and the past. Ronald, home schooled by his history-aficionado mother and apprentice to his carpenter father, was a soldier in the American Army. There he learned how to do things effectively and simply though his practical nature does not preclude his immense creativity. Norah’s pragmatism, my own dreamy tendencies, and our shared curiosity combine to create americanclothingshop . With our two boys as constant companions, we find inspiration in them as much as we do in the past, taking notes and creating new objects to delight younger beings – americanclothingshop is not just for big people.
