It started out with a simple sewing machine, and somehow my hobby turned into a business. Believe it or not, this isn't my "full time" job - I'm also an emergency room nurse. But that doesn't mean I'm any less committed to bringing customers high quality products. I absolutely love waxed canvas because it's the best material you can buy. It repels water, it is rugged, durable, and it develops a worn in patina with use. With proper care it will last for years. I make each bag by hand from beginning to end; from original design, to hand cutting the fabric and leather, to sewing and riveting, to finishing touches. One at a time, from me to you.
One thing that's important to me is buying materials that have been manufactured and/or sold by American based companies. When I say "Made in the USA" it's no joke. Martexin canvas is manufactured in the US by the same company since 1838; my leather is from a company that has been in business since 1919; the webbing straps are made by a family owned business in Oregon, who also supplies my hardware.
Thank you for supporting hand made!
