Handcrafted Leather Goods from a Vintage 1970's Era.

At age 12, I began an apprenticeship in a highly successful hippie leather store.

With the influence of several artists and master craftsmen, I completed a four

year apprenticeship followed by a one year journeymanship before becoming a

master leather craftsman.

After a tour in the Marine Corps, I opened a leather store in Vermont with my

main mentor. This evolved into a sole proprietor handcrafted wholesale company.

Later, I rejoined my mentor managing the contract area of his cobbler shop.

On his death, I felt it my duty to carry on the leather craft he taught me featuring

the highest quality leather goods and custom work.
