High Quality / Low Guilt. Ethical Leather Goods, Handmade in the USA.

Heist, the company, officially began the year after I graduated with my Bachelor of Music degree. I continued on to study copyright law a few years later, but all the while I was making jewelry and building Heist every spare moment I had. Upon graduation from law school (and passing two bar exams!) I dipped my toes into corporate America and quickly decided 'The Good Ol' Boys Club' wasn't for me. All the while Heist was there, slowly growing and gaining more traction. So when the day came when it became clear there wasn't enough time to do both, it was an easy decision to make.

I am now a full-time leathersmith and a proud entrepreneur. I make Heist for those who march to their own beat, live life on their own terms, and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. I always root for the underdog and love a good self-made success story.

My goal is to make timeless, high-quality pieces that are effortless enough to wear and use everyday. I am proud to source the finest ethical materials: Free-range buffalo leather from a ranch in Colorado and second-hand leather salvaged from everything from coats to couches. I strive to save as much landfill-bound material as possible and I never support factory-farming operations.
