Welcome to Tuch.

Here you will find unique minimalist leather sleeves and bags for your gadgets and your life.

Tuch began as a challenge for myself when I couldn't find a case for my iPhone that suited my needs. My needs were:

1) The case couldn't cover the beauty of the iPhone. I had to be able to touch the iPhone directly while using it.
2) The case itself needed to be beautiful and something that I enjoyed touching and interacting with.
3) The case needed to be durable.
4) It needed to function as my wallet as well.

The challenge was a simple rule: you can only use a single piece of leather with no stitching, glue, rivets, or other secondary means. Thus, I began to fold and tuck the leather in…

Welcome to Tuch.

Here you will find unique minimalist leather sleeves and bags for your gadgets and your life.

Tuch began as a challenge for myself when I couldn't find a case for my iPhone that suited my needs. My needs were:

1) The case couldn't cover the beauty of the iPhone. I had to be able to touch the iPhone directly while using it.
2) The case itself needed to be beautiful and something that I enjoyed touching and interacting with.
3) The case needed to be durable.
4) It needed to function as my wallet as well.

The challenge was a simple rule: you can only use a single piece of leather with no stitching, glue, rivets, or other secondary means. Thus, I began to fold and tuck the leather in on itself to create the case.

Next was a satchel for my MacBook following the same rules. Then my daughter got an iPad that needed a case, apply the rule, and so on. It came to the point where so many people began to ask me where they could buy these things that friends and family encouraged me to sell them. So, I took the plunge and here we are on Etsy.

The simple fact of the matter is that I love to create and to make beautiful and useful things. One of my great goals in life is to make everything in my life. That will never happen, but if I can share the enjoyment I get out of the things I make with others then that is close enough.

All the pieces are made by hand selecting the leather to be precision cut and etched with a laser and then assembled by hand by me. Each one is unique and has their own character and they will age over time and acquire a rich patina the will tell the story their life as your companion.

I appreciate you taking the time to learn a little bit about my work and the ideas behind them.

All the Best,

DG
