Herrmann and Mitas Violins and Bows
Towne Storage Building 2015
In 2015 Mitas joined forces with violinmaker Jamie Herrmann to found "Herrmann and Mitas Violins and Bows" in the Towne Storage building in industrial SE Portland. After just one year of being there, the building was sold for development. Fortunately both Herrmann and Mitas have great alternative spaces in their homes to continue their work in Portland. Though unable to continue working in the same space, Herrmann and Mitas remain allies in the field, Luthiers with a common vision, who will continue to collaborate, sharing ideas, inspiration and a community of musicians
