What makes your bags and leather pieces unique and special?
We set out to make the kind of accessories that we wanted to carry around. Our handcrafted line favors classic shapes, and perfect proportions that telegraph effortless refinement without flash or fussiness. It features a conspicuous lack of hardware, which makes our pieces lighter. We also employ different textures of leather in the same color family, so they are not only visually interesting but also exhibit luxurious tactile qualities.
What is important about the value of handmade quality?
When you buy handcrafted goods, you forge a relationship with the designer and the product. The value in buying artisanal handcrafted goods is the direct support for a high level of skilled craftsmanship and artistry. All of our items are made in small editions, not mass-produced. Your investment in buying handcrafted goods shows your appreciation and desire to support the creator and her trade at a local level.

It truly makes a difference! Voting ends Monday so if you haven’t yet please vote now. Thanks so much!
Merci beaucoup to everyone that participated in our Urban Ministries of Durham Day last Saturday. We’re so excited to announce that together we raised $2,000 for UMD! Even better? Our donation will be matched in kind, so in fact it’s worth a whopping $4,000 to our Durham neighbors in need. Thanks again, we really appreciate all the support for this great cause!
