Quotes from great designers that inspire me every day.
As an Industrial Designer I will strive to bring you simple, durable, beautiful goods.
Built with no frills, confusing pockets, or zippers that eventually break and render a bag useless.
Each item is made-to-order from start to finish by me in Burlington, Vermont. Items are made in limited quantities, small runs of less than 10 units.
I source all my cotton canvas, leather, brass hardware and 100% Wool felt from the USA.
The Leather I use is Full Grain meaning it retains all the character from the Range; i.e. insect bites, stretch marks, and scars from barbed wire are still visible on many of the hides I purchase. No two hides are the same and each leather item will vary from another.
Most sewing is done by hand. For hand stitching I use a saddle stitch. The saddle stitch is one of the oldest and best ways to join leather pieces.
