Traditional hand-stitching leatherworking methods...












..for superior handbags and accessories.

Each leather handbag is hand-stitched to order and created in my NYC studio using cowhide leather, French linen thread and equestrian brass hardware.

The hand-stitched handbags are created using the saddle-stitch, which is an old leatherworking technique rarely used these days in mass bag production because of the labor involved.

Handbag construction utilizing the saddle-stitch creates a more durable end product than a traditional machine stitched handbag.

Contrasting white or yellow thread is a traditional element of this old-world European saddlers method of construction and is used so that the hand-stitching stands out even more. 



Monogramming is available:    

Personalize your handbag with your name, initials, or short phrase.
