Born and raised in the Los Angeles county, I grew up heavily influenced by music, arts & media and a strong love for the outdoors.

Our products are simplistic, useful, durable and most importantly, comfortable.  Crafting goods with raw leathers allows your leather goods to patina with age, building character with handling and everyday use making each item unique and one of a kind.

Every item is hand crafted every step of the way.  Cut, assembled, punched, stitched, sanded, beveled, burnished & branded, all by hand.

I welcome collaborative work as well as private label orders.  I enjoy working alongside like-minded businesses and making great friends along the way.
