Hi Everyone, Happy New Year! I have been busy working in Los Angeles for a large apparel company as their Handbag and Accessories Design Director so I have not spend a lot of time on Rocco Sauvage the past year. It has been a crazy year commuting back and forth between two cities. I really feel like I could use a vacation. Thanks to everyone who has supported our brand in 2015. It is customers like you that make small business possible here in the United States. Someday it would be great to be able to expand the brand to a larger company but right now we are happy with the online store and a few local San Diego collaborations. We have a few new things in the works for 2016 but no sneak peek available just yet. We want to wish everyone a healthy and happy new year! Keep us in mind if you are looking for high quality men’s leather goods that are built to last & made in the USA! Cheers, Tara & Rocco (and Marco too)
I just spent 5 days in Las Vegas for the Project trade show. We featured Rocco Sauvage along with another brand of men’s leather goods. Our belts got the most attention. We have really unique buckles that I found in Italy from a very small family owned company. Many buyers told me they had seen nothing like that at the show. It helps that I travel far and wide and pick up interesting things along the way. I went to to Italy in 2010 for a leather trade show and saw the buckles. At that time I was not even in the market for men’s leather goods and I owned a women’s handbag line. However, the buckles were so cool that I just had to order a few for a future project. Now finally they are available and in stock! I know when I see something amazing, it just takes time to put a brand together and sell a product! As an entrepreneur, I always believe the right time is NOW! There are a lot of people that want to start their own business or launch a brand, but they wait years hoping that the perfect time will come along sometime in the future. That is so not me, I believe the perfect time is NOW. I know the time is going to go by anyway and we are all going to a year old next year, so why not start TODAY? It might not always make you a million dollars but the best adage is NO REGRETS. Thanks for supporting our small brand and come back soon for more unique items that are built to last!
