This was a beautifully made bag with the added bonus that I will never lock myself out of the house again. Tons of compliments from a lot of local vendors and artists. Highly recommend a purchase!

I came back...no RAN back to this shop for a birthday present for my husband. He's been wearing the same belt since before I knew him (11 years plus) which sung it's swan song 5 years ago. I found him a few times hammering a new hole in the belt because the leather had stretched and he was making it fit again. I would casually look for a new belt here and there in stores, but they were all so soulless. When Lauren and Scott posted these belts I knew I had found The Replacement. It's beauty is matched only by the craftsmanship- no surprise there. So excited and jealous of his new belt! As an aside, the packaging is always such a treat from these guys. The belt came in a cute roll top bag not unlike some of the big versions in the shop. I may steal that from hubby as a consolation prize. Love this shop- it's the best!

About

With Every Strike of the Hammer

We are Lauren and Scott Stevenson, and we are The Daysmith.

It is the idea that we are all the founders, dreamers, alchemists, and craftsmen and women of each and every day that inspired us to create a company that cares as much about how we make our products as we care about how we craft our days - the art of the day creator. One stitch at a time we are building The Daysmith on a foundation of creative vibrance, reinforced by quality, inspired by art, and imbued with a brand of beauty that tells stories, while making new ones.

In 2012, with a fist full of sheer determination, and two hearts full of optimism we quit our day jobs and headed back to the beautiful state of Maine after a year long sojourn out west. The Pine Tree state, with its miles of ocean, forest, and backroads is where we’ve sown our deepening roots, and now truly call home. Upon our return Scottie acquired his first side of leather and began to teach himself to hand stitch, and I acquired our 1951 Singer industrial sewing machine “Edith Rose.” With only these essential tools and materials, we let ourselves go, and began forging our days. Over the course of 4 years, 2 different businesses, 1 basement, 3 tiny apartment studios, that same 1951 Singer, and several new day jobs, we are now The Daysmith, the third manifestation of our dream, together, not one without the other. No road is straight. There’s never nothing left to learn. The world doesn’t stop turning for anyone. The question isn’t what will tomorrow bring, the question is what will we bring to tomorrow? Because this life doesn’t make us, we make it.

Whatever you bring, wherever you are, whoever you’re with, whatever you dream: carry us with you confidently knowing we put the same lust for life and beauty into our work that you uniquely, and uncompromisingly put into forging your days.

For all you smithies.
For all your days.
With every strike of the hammer.
We are The Daysmith.

    I find time to cut, stitch, and design in between cultivating an indoor jungle, cooking mind-blowing gastronomic delights (soup savant), watching too much British television, drinking wine, and nuzzling my hot husband and dumb cat, Sauceman.
