I do love the item... but there's one thing you guys really need to do to improve the functunality of the apron. When I went to use the apron I noticed my straight sheers not only poked through the stitching underneath the area on the bottom of the area which holds your scissors, combs or whatever one uses that area. I was torn between contacting you guys, but someone recommended a local leather works type of person. He said you guys stitched the whole apron with regular sewing string, when in fact you should have used nylon. He dismantled the apron and restitched the whole thing at a mind blowing inexpensive price. I will probably order other products from you guys in the future but I guess next time I'm going to ask what the item is actually stitched with.

Valentichbags is a great group to order from. They were very personable and helpful with the sizing for me. I couldn't have made a better more durable apron. It was everything I thought it would be and more. They gave me enough leather at the ends for growing! I will order from then again and again! Thank you so very much

Valentich Bags

Valentich Bags began in 2010 on a home sewing machine in a Salt Lake City apartment. In 2012 we quit our days jobs to focus on building super awesome bags full-time.

We now bring you carry and craft accessories from our studio in the historic Baker neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. We are dedicated to bringing you high quality items that are designed and built for a lifetime of adventure. Inspired by our own wanderings, Ryan designs and builds functional bags that look good whether you're biking through a city or relaxing around a campfire, with features you'll use everyday, not just once a year.

Almost all of our bags and accessories are made to order and about half of our work is custom, so feel free to get in touch if you have a special request.
