I have been working with leather for the last 45 years. My focus has been on developing a line of soft leather bags that are both eye appealing and user friendly. The leather I use is domestic cow, which is tanned in the USA to my specifications, The colors, softness and durability of these skins are a result of our combined efforts. The past few years I have been showing limited editions and one-of-a-kind bags.
