From Hide to Hand: The Making of our Wallets

July 28, 2017

Each of the wallets in our minimal wallet collection is made from start to finish in our Denver, CO workshop. Beginning with raw materials, we work directly with Midwestern tanneries to source high quality vegetable tanned leather that will look great and hold up over time. Then, we meticulously cut and assemble each piece using a combination of traditional tools and contemporary techniques. We've carefully designed and field tested all of our wallet styles, refining them so that they minimize clutter while maximizing function.

In this post we invite you into our workshop and show you the process of making one of our newest styles, the Slim Wallet

No matter what you have planned this summer (and beyond), we've got you covered. Check out the guide below for a rundown of our project-ready apron collection.


The Canvas Shop Apron serves up a double shot of utility and style. Sturdy cotton canvas lends ruggedness and durability, while double stitched pockets offer versatile function for any job. Want to keep a pen or small tool handy? Pop it in the chest pocket. Rivet enforced waist pockets are perfect for stashing a notebook or phone. Tailored for a close fit, the Canvas Apron is more garment than accessory. Adjustable neck strap makes for comfortable all-day wear, and waist ties are long enough to tie in front or in back to keep them out of the way. Streamlined fit, casual style, and functional details make it favorite among baristas. Barista pro tip: wrap ties around the front and tie them underneath your apron for a clean finish.

Where To? The Roll-Top Pack

June 4, 2017

Winter Session carry goods are designed to work with you and for you in your everyday adventures. Our 'Where To?' video series offers a snapshot of our bags in action, from their production in our workshop to their adventures out in the world.

Our latest video follows the Roll-Top Pack, from our workshop cutting table to the streets of Denver, and features our friend Eric Jennings (who, when he's not out cruising on his motorcycle, coordinates events for some stellar Denver restaurants).

A huge thanks to Sam Pike for making this video and to Port Side and Huckleberry Roasters for hosting (and fueling) our adventure!

NEW: The Olive Waxed Canvas Collection

May 31, 2017

We're all about Olive right lately. Maybe because we're midway through our Spring production (and Olive waxed canvas is covering most of our workshop!) or maybe because it's the time of year when everything around us is green and growing.

Either way, we're pretty obsessed with our latest colorway, and we're busy field testing our own Olive Roll-Tops and Zip-Top Totes to see how they patina (when we're not making our bags, we're using them on a daily basis to see how the canvas and leather ages and changes over time). 

Below you'll find a peek at some of the bags, wallets and accessories that make up our Olive Collection, paired with some more greenery for good measure. Enjoy!
