If you can dream it in leather, Tania Alejandra can make it. A handbag crafted from your daddy’s old boots, a wallet debossed with your child’s favorite Pokemon, a purse with a secret compartment for concealed carry, a mask that makes it appear as though a parasitic alien is laying eggs in your face — you name it, she’s done it.
But for Alejandra, the creative, intimate endeavor of creating a custom piece for an individual was largely made possible by the wholesale orders that typically make up the bulk of the revenue for her Texas Luxury Goods. The event that drives the largest sales of the year? The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
