Javelina Family Pearl Snap Shirt x Fancy Pony Land
From our limited-edition collaboration with Fancy Pony Land. Inspired by the far west, the far east and the far out. Featuring hand-cut leather appliqués on garments from some of our heritage denim workwear favorites.
This few-of-a-kind piece features metallic silver lambskin leather on a Levi's Essential Western Denim Shirt in a medium wash.
The ever-talented Lorna Leedy of Fancy Pony Land on our javelina inspiration:
"If you are lucky you may see a family of Javelina at El Cosmico. They are not wild boars, pigs or rodents; Javelina are actually Collared Peccaries, a family of mammals. They eat plants and fruit and, from my observations, particularly love prickly pear cactus and acorns. Javelina have poor eyesight but an excellent sense of smell, so they may not know you’re close unless the wind is right. They live in family bands and you can often see groups with babies, which I highly recommend as they are outrageously cute."

A note about sizing:
We consider these pieces to be unisex, but please note this shirt is from the Levi's women's collection (men might consider sizing up). Find your perfect size:
Take care to follow these care instructions:
Wash seldomly. Denim is resilient and wears best when washed infrequently. Indigo dye has natural antibacterial qualities that make washing less necessary. Spot clean when possible. When you really must give it a wash, hand wash in cold water and hang to dry. Once dry, iron inside out. Leather, as a natural material, is washable but should be handled with care. When it first dries, the leather appliqué may seem stiff or slightly shrunken. It will become supple again once ironed on the backside. If you really want to protect and take care of the appliqué you can also rub a conditioning water-proofer like Nikwax into the leather, though be careful when applying not to get oil on the garment as it can stain. Do not dry-clean.
Fancy Pony Land's process:
Fancy Pony Land is handmade by Lorna Leedy. Original drawings become stencils that are traced onto leather and cut by hand with scissors. The appliqués are adhered to garments and machine top-stitched meticulously at a slow
rate of speed.
