Inspired by the "Joy and Zest for Life" that is so much a part of Texas, Louisiana and the southern states bordering the Gulf of Mexico, our designs are a light-hearted celebration of our area's unique culture.
Anything is possible in this imaginary world where longhorns, decked out in cowboy hats and boots, celebrate the holidays with a festive line dance; Where Santa starts his Christmas journey from the "Texas North Pole" in a wagon pulled by his team of longhorns. In the coastal and swamp regions, you might spot Santa Claus in a fishing boat loaded with toys in the marshes and swamps led by a team of alligators.
The Routh Collection was established in 1994 by Craig Routh and his wife Leslie. All illustrations and paintings for our designs are created by award winning artists Craig Routh and his father Stan Routh. Leslie Routh designs and collaborates on many of the card designs and creates most of the recipes included on our Christmas cards.
