Half Moon hand-manufactures beautiful, functional clothing that will last. We do our best to incorporate our cultural heritage and influences as well as our Western Colorado landscape in this slow fashion journey. Our cloaks, capes, and coats are worn as renaissance garb, reenactment and period fashion, steampunk experiments, everyday wear and, of course, in the back-country.
All of our garments are handmade in Delta, Colorado. We’ve used wool since our beginnings because it’s water resistant, warm, and quiet in the woods. It’s also recyclable, biodegradable, and requires significantly less energy to produce than many man-made fibers. Our wool comes from the oldest and longest continuously-operating wool mill in the U.S. We are proud to be a part of the “Made in America” fashion movement, and excited to be pursuing more sustainable practices in our production, including the use of alternative fabrics.

Most of our buttons are sourced from Ecuador via the Tagua Initiative from Conservation International. Tagua nut, or “vegetable ivory,” is a sustainable resource – by buying it we (and you) are supporting small communities in Ecuador and helping to conserve the Amazon rain forest. We also use antler and clay buttons locally made by artisans in Western Colorado.
