Updates

The River Market tote is now available! Guatemalan ikat fabric and the most gorgeous brown leather. Pretty much my new favorite statement bag!
Just listed some NEW mudcloth pillows! And they come with inserts because I always want to use my new pillows the second they arrive in the mail and I'm sure you do too blush
Just dropped: minimalist gold-filled necklaces. These have 100x more pure gold content than plated, so they won't tarnish and their sparkle will last a lifetime.

About

Why Broken Arrow?

I get asked this a lot, especially because I'm from Kansas City, not Oklahoma. Broken Arrow was an idea I had in graduate school when I was studying to get my MFA in creative writing. Instead of listening during some literature class, I was drawing logo ideas in my notebook. I was dreaming of what it would be like to have an Etsy shop and share the things I made with other people.

I found that over and over again I was using my initials (A.H.) and transforming the A into a broken arrow. I knew I wanted that symbol to represent my work, so I decided to just call my Etsy shop Broken Arrow.

When I created and shipped my first quote bracelets I was living in Colorado. Inspired by the landscape and laid-back vibe of life in the foothills, I wanted to create feminine items with an outdoorsy twist. So much of the mountain look is prescribed to men, and I wanted to change that. I wanted to create t-shirts and bags for women like me who love the reds, blacks, browns; not the pinks, purples. I wanted to see buffalo plaid on a tote bag. I wanted a purse made of waxed canvas and leather.

I like that these things still don't exist everywhere. It makes me feel like I've stumbled into a space that I can fill with flannel-lined bags and mountain shirts, and redefine what it means to be feminine AND outdoorsy.

    My passions in life are crafting and writing, and as I've gotten older I have started to appreciate the concept of sharing your passion with others. I'm excited to share my love of making things here on Etsy!

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

I wholesale t-shirts and jewelry, but cannot wholesale bags due to the high cost for materials. Bags are currently priced at wholesale. Due to high demand and limited production resources, I do not consign any of my items.

Do you do custom bags with materials of my choice?

I am open to custom projects that utilize materials outside of my regular stock. However, because I may have to order materials I will not re-use in my regular production, I will require the buyer to purchase all materials in addition to labor costs. Leather and fabric by the yard can be difficult to source in small quantities, so pricing will depend on my ability to obtain materials in the proper quantity. I will source materials and quote the approximate project cost before any purchase is made. All excess materials for these projects can be shipped to the buyer but may increase cost of shipping.

My bag has become damaged. Can you fix it?

I create bags with the intention of having them truly be an investment that will hold up over time. If you have an issue with your bag due to construction within the first 90 days, I will repair and replace parts free of charge. Buyer will pay shipping both ways. Outside of 90 days, if a need for repair arises due to heavy use or a freak accident, I will assess the labor and parts necessary and quote the buyer a cost for repair. Buyer will pay shipping both ways.

My necklace broke. Can you fix it?

Absolutely. I will replace any defective parts free of charge and will not charge for labor, but I will require the buyer to pay shipping both ways. 95% of the time, a "broken" necklace is really just a jump ring that has slipped off of the chain. If you would like to avoid paying shipping and waiting for repair, this can be fixed easily with a pair of jewelry pliers from your local craft store.
