Partnership Spotlight: Pappy & Company x BURU

A special collaboration between three female led brands, inspired by legacy and designed to be celebrated 

Pappy & Company x BURU
Pappy & Company x Thompson Traders 


Although it may not seem like a necessarily obvious collaboration - a clothing brand, a bourbon lifestyle brand and a kitchen and bath brand - but for us it represents the true magic of running our own small business.  It may be our most personal collaboration yet -and it started the way the best partnerships do - with a natural connection, an easy conversation, and a recognition of like minded passions.      


As a fellow female founded company, we have always admired BURU and its founder, Morgan Hutchinson, and have turned time and time again to their bold and colorful prints and sophisticated designs for photo shoots and celebrations.  When we met Morgan at a Buru event, we were immediately drawn to each other, quickly sharing our similar stories and deciding that somehow, we would simply have to find a way to work together.  We shared the details of another collaboration that had recently begun to form between Pappy & Company and Thompson Traders, another family led brand built on legacy and tradition, born from a similar desire to invite future generations to celebrate hospitality and bring heirloom pieces to our everyday lives. Just like that, a partnerships was created, just the way we like, around punchbowl. 


The punchbowl always signaled the beginning. The beginning of a conversation, the beginning of a party, the beginning of a celebration. Now the the beginning of a collaboration, based on great-grandfather, Pappy Van Winkle's  iconic punchbowl, that inspired the forthcoming Everyday Heirlooms Collection from Pappy & Company and Thompson Traders that re-envisions a an updated version of the legendary punchbowl and serves as the inspiration for the Punchbowl Collection from Pappy & Company and Buru.





 Introducing the Punchbowl Collection, evocative of an era resplendent with entertaining and hostesses who happily mixed finery with everyday, were playful with color and enjoyed celebrating for the sake of celebrating. Created by two female founded Southern brands who channel their shared passion for celebrating the joy in everyday moments through vintage inspired pieces designed for modern livability.  Both Morgan and the Van Winkle sisters continue to be influenced by their Kentucky born grandmother’s distinctive sensibilities, style and love of hosting that made everyone feel included, and every occasion special.



This joint collaboration has reinforced what true partnerships are all about. It celebrates and honors the collective legacies of BURU, Thompson Traders and Pappy & Company and weaves our narratives together through a beautiful and tangible representation of what happens when passions are pursued and values are shared. What happens when you live life out loud, in color and boldly. When you celebrate craftsmanship, creativity, passion, and above all else, the friends who become family, family who are friends and business partners who are both.


These collections are meant to inspire, through treasured pieces designed to be used and enjoyed, the idea that everyday life is worthy of celebrating in the same way a special occasion demands. Wear your favorite dress, bring out the special china, pop a bottle of champagne and toast to the extraordinarily ordinary.
