"Crafted in Portland"

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Fri, Sep 14, 2012 at 11:59 AM

I am pretty pleased at the fact that design and craftsmanship seem poised to be the next big Portland selling point, with a new festival at hand and prominent outsiders looking in at us as a potential model. Danner Boots is one of the Pacific Northwest's elder statesmen of local production, and they're still kicking, with collaborations with the younger set (see: Tanner Goods), including an installation in collaboration with the Oregon College of Art and Craft (OCAC), debuting to the public at the school on Sept 20 (5-8 pm). It's a collection of giant letters—each an homage to something crafted locally, from coffee to music to bikes—spelling out "Crafted in Portland." It's a little cheesy, but it's good to see the old generation of local manufacturers connecting with the up and comers.
