Nestled in the small village of Tadten, Austria, the Erich Sattler Winery takes advantage of the soil’s temperature and sun’s trajectory to create the ideal environment for producing unique local varietals.
Jack White believes the best way to introduce a new generation to the allure of albums is to bring the music to them—–in the Rolling Record Store, a custom converted delivery truck.
He is well known for his music, but make no mistake—–the man also has the heart and soul of a designer. Last year, the onetime upholsterer decked out the eclectic Nashville headquarters for his Third Man Records. More recently, he converted a delivery van into a record-slinging mobile unit fully capable of supporting heart-thumping live performances. “We want to take it all over,” White says. “Just have little hootenannies right next to the truck.” Here's how he pimped his ride.
We got the low down on Jack White’s Rolling Record Store in our October issue, but the man had much more to say. Here, he talks about unfinished furniture designs, high school with Harry Bertoia, and why we should all be listening to Captain Beefheart.
I've got a habit—a little hoard-y, but not necessarily bad—of buying craft-ish supplies with no concept of what I will do with them. A while back at the local Mission Fabric Outlet (which is a great, great place, if you're in SF and need a shop for textiles, odds and ends), I noticed a display of Ziploc baggies full of small leather scraps... for $2 each! Score. I bought one, brought it home, and stored it with the rest of my stuff. Same with this spool of aluminum wire. It just looked like something I'd want, sometime, so I made it mine and set it aside. It took some futzing around one night while my mom was in town, and we came up with the idea for this scrappy wrap bracelet. It's easy, and quick, and you can use any small strips of fabric (if leather's not your thing). Here's how!
