While crafting his leather goods, Chris places a strong emphasis on thoughtfulness and practicality. Each item is made to order, considering the specific needs and desires of the customer who will be using it—the chef on the go, the traveling coffee drinker, anybody that constantly loses their keys (i.e. all of us). Because each product is hand stitched from sturdy hides, they’re meant for everyday use and can stand up to the test of time. When not meeting the needs of customers, he caters to his family, his workshop located at home, making him a stay-at-home maker.
