It’s often been our habit to make holiday gifts for our family. One recent Christmas we decided to create passport holders made from Glenn’s old leather bomber jacket. We loved hand-stitching the worn supple leather and we haven’t turned back since.
We’re excited to start our own small business as we transition from our years in education. Our current line of leather goods has evolved out of a search to create fine-crafted leather goods made by hand using the finest full-grain oil-tanned leather. Our leather is sourced from US tanneries and distributors.
“We call it slow fashion.” Each item is designed, cut, and made by hand. This process does take time, but in the end, you are left with a product that will naturally condition and develop a delicious patina for years to come.
