As fall turns toward winter we are shifting gears to focus on some big internal changes for Organic Armor. First thing is a top to bottom remodel of our studio. We are based in a hundred year old factory building on the edge of Asheville, between the river and the railroad tracks. It’s a great […]
How was your Halloween! Did your costume look as you hoped it would, and come together in a timely manner? Hope it was comfortable and beautiful. We are finishing an Edea helmet (a sorceress in the game Final Fantasy) and about to start on several new custom projects. We are also getting ready to remodel […]
We are leaving today for the sweetest little music festival in the mountains that you ever saw – the Lake Eden Arts Festival. Last spring was our first time vending there and we sold out of faun horns so this time we have whole bunch ready! Looking forward to seeing the Be Good Tanyas, Rising […]
The snake entwined steampunk style corset has generated a lot of buzz! It is a commission for a customer’s Halloween costume. Here are some photos of the finished product. These photos were taken by a local photographer we recently met on Model Mayhem, Konstant Karma. Great to work with, you’ll be seeing more from him […]

We were vendors at the Lake Eden Arts Festival on Mother’s Day weekend and it was a blast! It’s in Black mountain, NC, just 20 minutes away from home, nestled in a sweet summer camp in the woods. It is the location of the famous Black Mountain College of the 1940s and 50s, which was […]
We had the pleasure of hosting a short term intern in March. Alyssa, sister of the wonderfully infamous Chainmail Chick, spent her spring break learning how to make Organic Armor. She fit in comfortably and showed a real aptitude. She helped us get started with circlets for our summer inventory. She also made herself a […]
Busy busy busy lately. Sorry to let the blog languish so. Here is how the Edea headdress turned out. The colors were so much fun! We will be at the Lake Eden Arts Festival May 9 – 12 in Black Mountain, NC. Come enjoy the sweetest music festival in the Blue Ridge.
