meet maysen battles
Hi y'all! I'm Maysen Battles, the one-gal circus show behind Flying Spade Company! Hailing from the desert of Oregon's Sagebrush Sea, I've spent the last four years bouncing around the Empty Quarter, finding and drawing inspiration from the "poor work that makes men feel rich," better known as the Northwest ranching culture. From gathering fats on green, lush grass near Mount Hood to dragging calves to the fire on rawhide outfits in ION Country, I truly love every aspect of the ranching community, both in life and my work!

BEHIND THE BRAND
I've made it my mission
to work with worn tack and/or second-run hides that come with range marks, brands and scars as much as I can... basically, all of the things that have already told a story... now it's up to us to keep on adding to it! Maysen Battles, Maker/Owner
THE BRAND THAT STARTED IT ALL:
THE ROCKING DOUBLE R
At 18 years old, Maysen stumbled across a pair of old batwing chaps worn by a local range rider in the Cascades; worn by R. Resler, the "rocking double R" adorned both chap bottoms; the chaps had nearly 25 years of blood, sweat and memories packed into them... which got her to thinking: why don't we utilize the resources we already have that come with a neat story?!
