Black Wolff Leather

Black Wolff Leather donates a percentage of all sales to varies animal rescues, including the Wolf Center, where they strive to help wolves reclaim their place among California native wildlife , the Fox Center, and the San Diego Wildlife Center to name a few.

“I just recently took the plunge and quit my visual stylist job to see where my craft can take me,” the creative mind behind Black Wolff Leather confides to Foul South. “I’m a huge fan of wearable art and handmade instead of mass produced; handbags are such a personal accessory. I never wanted to carry the same bag as everyone else.”
Drawing inspiration from her grandmother, Maria Wolff, and her coat of arms, San Diego-native Criscuolo hand forges everything from handbags and vests to wallets and fringed neckwear. “Self-taught means trial and error,” she explains, “and handmade means no machines. It’s a time-consuming art since I only use hand tools, but I think that it’s what makes my brand different.”

And Criscuolo’s desire to veer from the norm doesn’t just show up in her pieces—though North American deerskin studded with snake vertebrae and fresh-from-the Earth semi-precious stones makes it abundantly clear. Her independence, her drive to create exceptional personal experiences is evident in her choices: where to live, how to work, and where to give back.
