I design all Made Solid pieces with simplicity and functionality in mind. With time, they will become a reflection of the owner, with patterns of use developing a beautiful patina in the leather.
I make each piece by hand from start to finish, cutting, shaping, sewing and finishing in Los Angeles California. A rich history of leather craftsmanship goes into each piece. This begins at some of the oldest American tanneries where I source vegetable tanned hides. It continues through the use of vintage leather working tools, traditional saddle stitching and the use of antique Civil War Era bone buttons on many pieces. These traditions are brought to present with clean designs that allow the unique character of each hide to remain intact, enhanced over a lifetime of use.
