STATEMENT I make leather products that combine smart design and a classic style. The finished pieces are born from an idea that grows into sketches. After drawing, hides are selected based on their color and personality. Prototypes are constructed and tested for durability, form and style. Every bag is one of a kind because no two hides are alike.
BIOGRAPHY Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, I began commercial sewing 11 years ago. Working with my hands gave me an energy and happiness that no other job has. Coming from a long line of passionate entrepreneurs, I decided it was time I found my passion. So, I began working with leather knowing that as it ages it becomes more and more interesting and beautiful. I've always appreciated well-loved bags and clothes. They are a part of people’s stories, the places they go and things that happen along the way. I’m excited to be a part of the stories.
As far as care goes, Peter tells people to keep it simple. If they want to clean and condition, it's best to use simple saddle soap. However, if the bag has years of use and starts to dry out, then any good leather conditioner will do. One that he recommends, that is widely available, is Fiebing’s 4 Way Care.
