When I was a little girl, my grandfathers “man cave” was a small room behind the heater that was decked out with his leather working tools. I would go visit him there and sit on his lap while he cut, carved and painted the leather. I love leather, they way it smells, the way it feels and best of all, the way it wears. He taught me about leather and how special it is. He made me several bags and wallets that I still cherish. Today I won’t buy a bag or shoes that aren’t leather and I think of him every time I pick out a new bag. I miss him.
When I saw these bags, I was instantly drawn to them. These have been created for the last 25 years by a couple that started hand painting them in their home. The process and refining method of painting these beautiful bags is a closely guarded family tradition.
Remember while you are looking at these that they are all hand painted and signed by a member of the family.

I have picked out my favorites. I know these may look a bit old fashioned, but for me they are a good memory I can’t give up. I know they are pricey, but after being raised in the leather workshop (Man Cave), I know the price of leather back then was high. I can only imagine what it is now. Quality leather along with great craftsmanship is worth it. My sister and I have bags my grandfather made us 40 years ago. With a little polish they would look brand new.
