Leather Goods

 

These leather goods were designed for Jill Lindsey's collaborative showroom with Black Body LED in SOHO. These shots were taken at the Jill Lindsey location in Fort Greene, and are all hand designed, crafted and treated with an organic finish here in Brooklyn. Every stitch is hand sewed using traditional binding techniques. The rivets are hammered in manually and then cut and finished. The leather is American natural veg tan treated with oils dyed with a natural water solution before being sewed, and is carefully oiled with a conditioner made here in Brooklyn by my friend, Armstrong All Naturals.

 

For this collection I was interested in the idea of simplicity, small beautiful objects that help us make our every day easier. This design value carries over across disciplines, but especially with objects, I am constantly seeking ways to make an objects as functional as it is minimal.
