"For all those finding their frontier, may they go there in style."
The big idea moment came a few months ago while I was biking to the studio after a client meeting. I realized that starting out, all I have is myself and everything in my bag. Looking around the coffee shops, parks, and meeting spots, I realized there are plenty of individuals like me who are trying to make it out there. I decided then that I wanted to design products to seamlessly support their chosen frontier.
The images below is a journey of my process and inspirations.
_ MATERIAL: Vegetable Dyed leather. This particular process tans the leather with plant based dyes. It has no coating and so your history and adventures are embedded in the material of the product.
_ PROCESS: Designing and crafted in San Francisco. Leather is an unforgiving material that warrants craft. Its been a journey where every cut, every curve, and each stitch requires a lot of deliberation and patience. What started as material studies, has now become journey.
