About

My 30 years of industrial sewing & design background (tents, fabric structures) has given me a firm foundation to finally be doing what I truly love....and that is working with leather & canvas.

I love making bags that show my attention to detail. It often takes me days to work out a design, and I won't sell anything I'm not satisfied with. I'm inspired by what's "in" and also by classic styling. Every item is cut and stitched by me alone.

I procure my leather from a distributor right here in Maine who deals in tannery overruns & other high quality leathers. I find some very unique leathers & therefore, many of my bags are one-of-a-kind. Linings are generally from cleaned and reused clothing I pick up at thrift stores, etc, which adds to the uniqueness of my bags…

The polyethylene mesh fabric I use is entirely scrap fabric from a local outdoor canopy business I formerly owned. This stuff is absolutely indestructible and lends itself to many fun styles! The canvas I use is made in the USA & is of high quality & durability.

I will gladly sell some items wholesale! Special orders are welcome & I can "tweak" just about any style to suit you personally. If you'd like swatches of leather or fabric, just drop me a line.
