Working with leather drives me crazy.
The leather work takes the same amount of time as making the bag itself. But man do I love the way it turns out! Working with leather feels great in the hand, under the blade and flows well on the machines. I'm lucky to be able to work with all of the materials and tools that make me happy. Canvas, waxed canvas, leather, brass, lightweight xpac fabric, and synthetic webbings. They all serve a different purpose and produce a different aesthetic.
I enjoy them all.
I enjoy making stuff.

I've been doing a lot of custom runs for shops this year. Joe at Synaptic and I have been talking about doing a tool roll for a while. Joe supplies customers with high end bicycle rentals in southern California. He wanted a purpose build roll that had everything his customers would need on a fast road ride. The bag needed to reflect the colors of his shop, and his personal aethetic, it turned out great! One thing that really takes the bags to another level for shops is having Falls Creek Outfitters supply custom patches. Walter is great in finding the size, colors, and patch design layout that fits your style.
