Patricia Wolf
Texas designer Patricia Wolf has created a tradition of western lifestyle apparel, accessories and home décor since 1980 on Main Street in Smithville, Texas. Leathers and fabrics are the medium she uses to design collections with pallets of rich earth tones and delicate springtime desert colors. Combining fabrics and leathers with great tailoring, she has created a distinctive "Patricia Wolf" look.
As one of the few designers still "Made in America", Patricia takes pride in her label that reads "Made in Texas". Working in her Texas studio she is able to keep a watchful eye on her products as they are made. "Made in Texas" allows the quality to stay consistent and also makes it possible for her to customize colors and embellishments to the retail store who buy her products and also to discerning retail customers who ask for personal custom designs.
If you think that high fashion is glamorous, consider the modest background of Patricia Wolf. Imagine listening to the Grateful Dead in 1973 and driving in a delightful hippy bus through the high desert on the way to their next art festival. Patricia and her husband Sam, with 2 young children, lived and worked in a beautifully crafted bus they called the "Prairie Schooner". Patricia marketed handmade leather clothing at arts festivals throughout the West. The Wolfs were artisan nomads who were laying the foundation to the Patricia Wolf enterprise.
Now she loves the styling of retro-western arrowhead pockets, buckaroo cowgirl chinks, vaquero and old Mexico senoritas or Native American hide paintings. She is at home with rhinestone rockabilly or leather and lace at the National Final Rodeo.
...
Patricia Wolf has come a long way since touring in that magnificent bus. Patricia gives a great interview and she has been the subject of TV lifestyle segments and numerous magazine and newspaper articles. Her many awards include the 1989 Guest Designer at the Dallas Western Market, 1998 Texas Natural Fiber Designer of the Year, 2000 Honoree as the Houston Museum of Fine Arts Ready-To-Wear Artist, and 2003 Western Image Awards winner of the Dallas Apparel Mart.

In 25 years designing fashion apparel and accessories, the Wolf family has crafted a thriving business in a small town deep in the heart of Texas.Patricia has been called the queen of Western chic, but really the apparel line is "Couture Western Wear" influenced by (what else) the great American West, Native American, Spanish Vaquero and some European styling thrown in for good measure.If you think that high fashion is glamorous, consider the modest background of Patricia Wolf and see where high fashion started for this well known company.
On the Road
The year was 1973.Imagine listening to the Grateful Dead on the eight track and driving in a delightful hippy bus through the high desert on the way to their next art festival.Patricia and her husband Sam, with 2 young children, lived and worked in a beautifully crafted bus they called the "Prairie Schooner".Patricia honed her designing skills by marketing their handmade leather clothing at arts and crafts festivals throughout the West.The Wolfs' were artisan nomads who were laying the foundation to the Patricia Wolf enterprise.
By combining leather and denim, she developed a rugged yet feminine look that attracted the attention of Levi Straus in San Francisco who, at the time, had not considered denim as a fashion statement.Forsaking the corporate world, Patricia declined the career opportunity as staff designer offered by Levi and instead settled in central Texas to raise a family and launch a new career with a Western couture apparel line.
...
In the early 1980s, Patricia transitioned into wholesale designing.She had learned that leather made a great medium for applying hand-painted Western scenes and Native American storytelling in painted glyphs.She introduced her line to wholesale buyers who had never seen anything like it before.They loved the vintage quality of her leather line and Patricia Wolf became a hot commodity almost overnight.
Patricia's line has evolved into a broad offering of Western, Native American, Vaquero, and contemporary looks.She designs complete outfits for a really put-together-look, but she also has fun with presenting eclectic separates that can be worn with just tee shirts and jeans.
...
Patricia Wolf has come a long way since touring in that magnificent bus.As in the early days, she is again custom designing for selected customers who request something special.Custom designing is exciting because it requires interviews, fittings, and adjustments to create a finished piece, and custom designs sell for a higher price.Wholesale is still the bread and butter of the company and most customers can find plenty of wonderful Patricia Wolf styles at the many retail stores who carry her label.
Patricia gives a great interview and she has been the subject of several TV lifestyle segments and numerous magazine and newspaper articles.Her many awards include the 1989 featured Designer at the Dallas Western Market, 1998 Texas Natural Fiber Designer of the Year, 2000 Honoree as the Houston Museum of Fine Arts Ready-To-Wear Artist, and 2003 featured Designer Western Image Awards of the Dallas Apparel Mart.
Patricia likes to say she is either a little fish in the big pond of international fashion design, or that she is a big fish in the small pond of specialized Western designing in America.Either way, Patricia is delighted just to be in the pond.
