Beginning in her early twenties, Erica Hanson has worked in product and apparel design and manufacturing for large and small companies, as well as for herself. Her success with all endeavors has come from an ability to approach each design challenge with a sensible and effective solution that is well tailored to the desired audience.
Her notions of great design are rooted in the styles of both of her parents. Her mother’s was classic, simple, uncluttered, timeless and unswayed by the tidal pool of fads. Her father, likewise, bought infrequently but well. A well considered pair of boots, expertly and beautifully stitched, lasted him as far back as her memory will take her.
From them have come the cornerstones of her design — simplicity, functionality, quality and exquisite detail. EH Works’ mission is to design products that reference the best of the past and tell a story as their use is passed on to future generations.
