Shades of the West is the original home of the Anselm Collection. The Anselm Collection represents a significant new standard of excellence in handcrafted leather work (belts and other custom leather goods) along with silver and turquoise jewelry. Anslem Bischoff's passion for arts and crafts developed from watching his grandfather, Camillo Garcia, who collected and traded with the Native Americans at his trading post in Canyon de Chelly.
