About This Blog

I was introduced to the fine art of handcrafted bootmaking as a little girl and it forever changed the way I looked at everything we wear and buy.

A few years later, when I was 12, I created a job for myself dusting collectibles at the only antique store within a 200 mile radius, just so I could hang out with owner-Matriarchs, Ruth and Helen, who gave me an awe-inspiring appreciation for design and the context within which things are made and used.

Both these experiences ignited an enduring passion for dedicated craft, inspired design and a compelling storyline.

And of course, delaCav is a direct expression of these personal inspirations, as well as those yet to come - which is where my little Blog here will take center stage ―as a visual narrative with some storyline.

I'll share my experiences as a designer & entrepreneur and highlight the people, places and things that are turning me on as I pursue my passion and share a little truth, beauty, freedom and love... one pair of boots at a time.

    When I design and craft boots, I am leaning into inspiration I find more often than not in industrial design.
This new CP Arm Chair by venerated and veteran midcentury modern designer, Charles Pollock is making me pretty crazy today.
Amazing lines. The silhouette is lean and fast.  The craftsmanship is by hand, of course, and that is where perfection can be found - in the large loop stitch, made of the same material as the chair, which creates subtle dimension.
These are the unique details that add luxury and inspire desire… and exactly why I choose to create handcrafted bootwear in a modwestern minimal style. No need for much frou frou when a beautiful story can be found in a stitch.
