Horseshoes as “crescent figured irons with nails” date back in written history as far as 910 AD and the Byzantine Empire. Over the centuries, as horseshoes have made the journey with man and beast through undiscovered lands - they have also become a superstitious symbol and a talisman for good luck.
In the magical west Texas desert we hang horseshoes above our doors with the crescent ends pointed up so they can catch any good luck that may be floating by in our big cloud star exploding sky.
Marfa, Texas is a town that is occupied by artists and craftsman of all types. It’s a place where modern aesthetic and practice meets the traditions of the old wild west in a melting pot of creativity and invention. By powder coating our Lucky Horseshoes, we change the symbol’s texture within the artistic landscape and produce beautiful objects that anyone can hang above their door or use in their shrine to accent their lives with a little more luck than they had before.
