It's a new year, and that means new workshop classes! Join us on Saturday, January 23rd in our east Austin studio for our Level 1 Tooling workshop. In the course of a fun afternoon, I'll show you the basics of leatherwork, including hand tooling, hand dyeing, and finishing your projects professionally. Each student will walk away with a custom hand tooled and dyed key chain they've crafted. Make the key chain for yourself or as a gift for Valentine's day! Spots are filling up quickly, so don't wait.Read More

I'm thrilled to announce the launch of the Open Road armchair, my first collaboration with KKDW. Kelly is such a talented designer and it was a real dream to work with her on this piece. The chair features a sleek and subtly angular frame welded from solid steel rod by KKDW. With a veg tan leather seat and back hand-stitched by Canoe, the chair is simple and strong with a refined silhouette.
Check out the subtle pattern on this beautiful piece of veg-tan. Over time, the leather will soften and darken with age and use. Both the seat and back are carefully and slowly hand stitched. Cursing may have been involved at times, but it was said with love.
I can't deny the rumor that Kelly made me go blonde to match the chair. I'm pretty happy about it.
I'm opening the studio doors and inviting you to join me in a leather tooling workshop on Saturday, June 7th in our east Austin studio. The workshop will cover the basics of working with leather, focusing on tooling to make your own custom key chain. All materials and tools will be provided, and you'll have a finished key chain just in time for Father's day.
Here are some examples of the key chains made in workshops last summer:
Spots are filling up, so reserve your seat for the workshop right here.
Last month I met up with the talented Madesmith team while visiting Brooklyn and we had a great time chatting about work, life, and the American-made movement. Today, Canoe launches as a featured artisan on their shop, which I'm thrilled about. I've been watching Madesmith since they first started and have loved reading their interviews with artists and designers. Check out the Canoe interview here and shop our collection on Madesmith, just in time for the holidays.
