Salty Western is inspired by the lush textures in nature, wild ranch lands, and the untamed seas of Hawai’i Nei. Committed to leaving a sense of this nostalgia in every piece, all of our products are handmade with fine quality leather and materials. Our pieces are crafted for the wild ones, with wanderlust in their eyes and adventure in their hearts. Whether you're wandering valleys of the Hawaiian Islands or shores of foreign destinations, Salty Western is along for the ride.
On the shores of Mokule'ia of the North Shore of Oahu our Nostalgia lookbook comes alive.
"it's delicate, but potent.
In Greek, "nostalgia"
literally means "the pain
from an old wound." It's
a twinge in your heart
far more powerful than
memory alone - a feeling
of a place where we
ache to go again"
This collection was inspired by designer, Taira Cran, who currently resides on the North Shore of Oahu, where she brings her life and memory to the forefront. Inspired by Mauna Kea, a mountain which holds her wild memories, she translates each piece to reflect the story of sleepless nights in a cabin filled with cowboys, to the vastness of this majestic mountain's terrain, to roping King Kamehameha's wild cattle off of horses.
Just like a fragrance that brings a forgotten memory to life again; here is where nostalgia lies.
Inspired by the beauty of Hawai'i and a lifestyle constant of wanderlust. For everyday and every adventure, our pieces are made for wherever you're going right now.
