I'm Morriah Gilman, Owner & Founder of Tin & Turquoise and Branded T.
I live in Central Alberta and my husband and I call our little farm, home. We raise Codie, our crazy redheaded daughter, our dog Waylon, as well as some veal calves when I'm feeling particularly ambitious. We enjoy roping & riding our cowponies every chance we get (which never seems to be enough these days!)
There always seems to be a few extra animals hanging around the farm (which is a Snow White dream come true over here!) But we have a few permanent residents who I'm sure you'll see regularly!
Trigger (the Gray) is our semi retired Pro Team Penner, who still thinks the world is scary, and being a gray, is dirty 100% of the time.
Cowboy is my pretty boy, who is a talented head and heel horse, my main man, and has the patience of a saint.
And last but not least Lady May, the sweetest little mini with the talent of a working ranch horse, a heart of gold and the apple of Codie's eye.
My husband used to compete as a bronc rider in his wilder days and I have been in the horse industry my whole life, involved in everything from grooming and barn management, to a Vet Tech and Equine Massage Therapist for high end race and competition horses.
That love for this lifestyle and a difficulty finding styles that spoke to me personally is what lead me to start Tin & Turquoise.
Outside of ponies & western fashion? I love a good road trip, solid country music (Colter Wall, Charley Crockett & Zach Bryan anyone?), a cold one every now and then, being in the mountains and the company of great people.
grit & glamour
says it all
Women who live and love the western lifestyle are a stunning combination. We can get down and dirty working cattle, caring for livestock, riding and competing and then flip the switch and glam it up with the best of them.
At Tin & Turquoise I offer high quality, unique clothing, with a punchy western flair that encompasses every facet of our lifestyle from the fancy awards banquets to the Sunday on the farm exercising horses or tagging calves.
tin & turquoise
Tin & Turquoise brings gritty, punchy and beautiful western fashion to Canada that looks great and works as hard as you do.
I've always had my own sense of style, and in more recent years, I've had an increasingly difficult time finding western inspired clothing in Canada that speaks to my lifestyle and really represents who I am. I thought if I was having this problem, I couldn't be the only one!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the unique, gritty & punchy pieces I have curated just for you. Be sure to find Tin & Turquoise on Facebook & Instagram for behind the scenes fun, new finds and a community of like minded Cowboys & Cowbabes.
