Behind The Reins


With a focus on quality methods the rich history of equestrian sport, Street & Saddle is known for its' eclectic takes on classic tailoring. Owner and designer Katelyn Woodburn was born and raised in a small coastal town in BC.

"I grew up a run-of-the-mill Horse Girl, enamored with all things equine. Along with the animals and the riding, I had a fascination for the tailoring and tradition that went into the clothing. I wanted to bring this aesthetic to everyone, regardless of whether or not they rode horses. There is something so strong and clean, yet so nostalgic about it."

-Katelyn Woodburn

 

 

Sustainability

All of our styles are manufactured in our Vancouver, Canada studio. We operate mostly on a made-to-order basis, meaning that we do not even cut the fabric until we know that a customer wants the piece. Though labour intensive, this process reduces the waste of overstock, and allows us to offer free customization services such as hem lengthening and shortening. 

Our fabrics are primarily natural based fibres such as wool, linen, cotton and rayon. This means that they are biodegradable. Some of our fabrics are also "deadstock," meaning that they are leftover rolls from other designers that may have otherwise ended up in the landfill. We make a concerted effort to search out fabrics that are certified organic, BlueSign certified or OekoTex certified. 

Quality is first and foremost on our mind when it comes to sustainability. Through thoughtful materials and craftsmanship, we aim to make clothing that is heirloom quality. Our end goal is to keep our pieces out of the landfill for as long as possible. We offer free repair services on every single product, whether it be missing buttons, tears or alterations.
