It’s nothing short of inspiring when the passionately talented people in your life make their dream come to life. In this case my friend Rene Holguin just opened his own shop, RTH, in Los Angeles.
Rene is one of the more creative people I ever met – an inspired visionary with a sense of style that is completely his own.He grew up in El Paso, Texas and learned the boot making business from his father. Though the years he has turned that experience into his own line of unique leather goods including bags, footwear, belts, jewelry and other accessories, (my favorites being the kilt pin and my leather feather and cedar oil dipped anchor necklace).
In addition to the shop Rene has a workshop behind the store where he and his friends make everything… In his words “it’s an accessory store inspired by the good ole souvenir shops of yester, featuring RTH limited run leathergoods and other inspiring pick up items. Native American beaded stuff, a selection of vintage clothing and some home scents”. In mine, its a look into Rene’s beautiful world and vision and you are now welcome to visit. And Breathe deep – it smells incredible. 537 N. La Cienega.
