I am a New Orleans leatherworker making wallets, bags, and accessories designed to be beautiful as well as durable for everyday use. Born out of frustration with disposable, cheaply-made products, I began making and designing my own accessories. prioritizing beauty, functionality, and durability over cheap decoration. Because I believe your everyday carry should last a lifetime, and can be both tough and beautiful!
Leather and Hardware. . .
Every hide and piece of hardware is chosen with function and durability as the priority, and is tested, worn, and abused in daily life. Every single stitch is done by hand. I rarely buy a leather hide without first seeing and feeling it in person. I use the best leather I can find, from family-run tanneries including Pergamena (Hudson Valley, NY), Conceria Il Ponte (Tuscanny, Italy), Horween (Chicago, IL), and Wickett and Craig (Curwensville, PA).
My current choice of components is the culmination of sourcing the best hardware available, primarily from Fidlock (Germany), BuckleGuy (MA), and A+ Products (NJ). As a custom leather wallet and hand-bag maker in New Orleans, Louisiana, I work hard to combine these materials into a durable and unique piece of art.
