This summer has blown by in a blur of fleece. Every day we hear that someone’s daughter/cousin/raft guide told them they MUST stop by Melanzana next time they are in Leadville. We love seeing your worn out old Mellys, and hearing about how many consecutive days you have lived in your Micro Grid Hoodies. Thank you so much for your support! Sadly though, we can’t keep up.
Monica is an awesome sewer.
We carefully grow our production team every year, and we now have sixteen amazing full time sewers in our little shop. Despite these efforts we are still left with empty racks. Even worse, our fabric supplier continues to experience moving pains, and our fabric shipments are currently running 4 months late.
Zach has skills with the hot drill.
But don’t lose hope! We have new colors in Micro Grid, Wind Pro, and Power Dry coming this fall. Good things are happening, and we cannot tell you how much we appreciate your patience!
New office & bathrooms taking shape next door.
AND, a massive remodel of our building is well underway. This winter we will tear down the walls between Melanzana and the old restaurant next door, doubling our production space and giving us room to grow and evolve for many years to come. Our commitment to providing jobs and operating locally is stronger than ever, and maybe – just maybe – in the future this will help us keep some product on the shelves.
