I’m a big fan of Pendleton, so I was eagerly anticipating this collaboration with Dr Martens! Finally the collection released featuring an exclusive Pendleton woven jacquard pattern called ‘Pagosa Springs’, the collaboration offers Dr. Martens iconic 1460 8-hole boot in Cherry Red and Black Smooth leather with a comfortable and cozy wool quarter panel on each side. In addition to the boot, there is also a traditional Dr. Martens satchel, crafted with the Pagosa Springs design and finished in Cherry Red or Black polished leather.
The ‘Pagosa Springs’ design was inspired by a legend about a deadly plague affecting the Ute Indian Tribe. They were miraculously cured when they assembled on the banks of the San Juan River. The Ute Tribe honored this area with the name ‘Pagosah’ which means ‘healing waters.’ Arrows in the pattern symbolize the path as the waters make their way to the surface. The four-cornered elements represent the location of Pagosa Springs in the Four Corners region of Colorado. The Medicine Man’s Eye in the centre represents vision, surrounded by the peaks of the San Juan Mountains.
The collection is currently available at Dr. Martens stores in the USA, UK, Asia and Europe, online and karmaloop.com. LOVE!
