RTH is the brain child of Rene Holguin, the son of a bootmaker from El Paso TX. All the RTH leather goods are handmade in Rene's family workshop in Texas and finished in his studio in Los Angeles. They are all impeccably crafted to last a lifetime, just improving with age. Rene spent much of his life as a visual merchandiser and creative consultant for some of the biggest names in the fashion retail world, including SF's own Levi Strauss. In 2011 he decided to leave corporate fashion to open the eponymous RTH, in Hollywood, CA, as an escape from the overwhelming "sameness" that pervades the market. We are so happy he did. Rene believes that “Design is in something, style is in the sum of things.” We agree. Rene's unique personal style and supreme creativity is apparent in every aspect of his work.
