Just Landed: Osborn Designs at Clementine

Artisan-made oxfords and loafers from Guatemala are now for sale in Seattle.

By Laura Cassidy April 10, 2012

Most Osborn shoes are made with reclaimed, handwoven fabrics—which makes them one-of-a-kind. You can now find them at Clementine in West Seattle.

We first wrote about Osborn Designs when some Seattle-based friends of the artisan-centric shoe company held a sample sale on Capitol Hill for them just over one year ago.

That was the first time the Guatemalan-made oxfords were available in Seattle—and until now, they haven’t been for sale here since.

Enter Clementine Shoes.

No, really, if you’re looking for lightweight, warm weather oxfords or loafers you can really feel good about and good in, enter the West Seattle shoe shop. Two styles just arrived, including an ikat pattern in the season’s hot brights.

You might consider a shopping date for Saturday, April 21 when West Seattle Junction merchants are hosting a tax-free day; you’ll save 10 percent with over 40 vendors, including Clementine.
