Behind the success of every small business, there's a family.
We are a small family owned and operated business. My wife and I devote our time and passion for leather crafting to create, design and produce a quality product that will last.
We craft every product by hand which presents a uniqueness in every piece.
When buying from a Hand maker, you're buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you're buying a piece of heart, a part of a soul, a moment of someones life. Most importantly, you're buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about.
We work with 100% full grain leather - renowned for durability and strength, natural oils and texture, all our skins are hand selected to ensure we only get the best cuts to work with. After experiencing the soft comfort of leather vellies you wouldn't want to settle for anything less.
