About Us

Hi, we are so glad you're here!

Tribe & Trade is an independent apparel and accessories brand based in Southern Indiana. We are a husband and wife team with a passion for great art, comfy clothes, and spending time together.

All designs are created by Richard, who heads the design department of a local printing studio. All orders and customer relations are handled by Tia, who formerly worked in Advertising, but now works full-time for Tribe & Trade, while homeschooling 3 boys.

We met in 2002, while both attending the University of Southern Indiana, and fell all the way in love shortly after. We were married in 2007, and the following year welcomed our first baby friend, our wickedly clever oldest son, Lincoln Andrew. It was also around this time that I started my first Etsy shop, selling jewelry for fun.  Eventually that baby itch started again, and in 2012 we added Brooks Avery, the funniest little boy we've ever met, to the crew. A few more years passed, and in 2016 our third son, Mercer Scott made our family even bigger. My little online shop also grew, first to handmade leather purses and more jewelry, to eventually be the store it is today: Tribe & Trade.

Tribe & Trade represents what is most important to us. The tribe is us, our family of favorite people that make every thing awesome, while the trade is our amazing business that allows us to follow our dreams. 

Our tribe is homeschooling, gardening, farmers markets and lots of fun.

Our trade is unique designs that we love and hope you will too.

Thanks for stopping by.
