Workin' for the weekend, but that's allright because I'm making a lovely #ooak Rhodochrosite Bucket Bag in white hair-on cowhide with grey veg-tanned belting. She's a looker.
Finished 31 of these leather stools for the top floor bar of the Wilshire Grand. My team was amazing. Thank you for the project @kgblnyc was amazing to work on this!
When it rains, it pours- and I've been swamped. Still managing to squeeze out bags, and even some custom ones like this Leather Sailor in Chestnut. 1st time for this bag in this color. 😍
Before this day of chaos begins, before my 3 assistants show up, before this place is a total shit hole with leather scraps flying everywhere- I just want to take a min to thank the universe for helping me to figure out a way to support myself as a leather worker- through a bag line, through home goods, through all the furniture designers/interior designers who trust me with their product. #blessed
Are you an LA-based leather worker, cabinetry person, carpenter assistant, someone who builds shit, who needs a little extra work? I have a crazy strict deadline on a project I'm working on and need someone to jump in and help my team and I bust this out. Would only be for the next couple weeks (till may 31st), 15-30 hours a week flexible, saturdays ok too. Need someone ASAP. Not the most amazing pay but you will learn a ton. Spread the word. 🙏🏻 #leatherhelper #woodshophelper #carpenter #haaaaaaaalp
Interview with Brad Pitt, post Angie, in the new @gqstyle basically, the only time I've felt I've ever had anything in common with this person. Here he talks about his new found love of sculpture and the kind of healing that working with ones hands brings. This same need to heal after a very intense break-up in my life, was exactly what drove me to dive into leather working. The name "all hands" was more then a nod to my nautical upbringing, it was the idea that by working with our hands- we begin to heal.
The sound of leather submitting to a 90 degree angle. 😌
Happy humpday. We have a private space available in our sunny, rad, inspiring studio space in DTLA. June 1st. Get in touch!
