Where do your source your leather?

I buy new leather. But, I also upcycle leather. Many of my products are made from old couch leather that has been washed, sanitized, and re-stained.


How long does it take to make your products?

The time it takes to complete each item varies. My items are handcrafted. I don't mass produce. Even when I make more than one of an item, they are not identical. These items are a labor of love. From the small dot earrings to custom painted leather feathers, everything takes time.

The smaller items seem as though they take less time but, many of them are hand-painted. The larger totes have time variances because of the hardware and the bulkiness when sewing.

Overall, I work as efficiently as I can. Have you seen the work triangle that says Good, Fast, and Cheap? Well, it's true and you can only choose two!


How do you come up with your designs?

I see beauty and function in the everyday. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel. I'm just working to make you look better while "rolling"!


Why not mass produce or make it all look the same?

Please see above. Plus, we have enough of that. I need you to be the WOW that walks in the room. If everyone has access to the same things we are still part of the crowd. It is okay to stand out...try it!
