THANK YOU + SPRING SHOW.


Photo by Shayna (A Little Sojourn) of her new clutch.

A big, huge, massive THANK YOU to everyone that picked up a new leather piece this past week or sent us nice words or posted pictures. Danielle and I were blown away (!!!) by your enthusiastic response. Envelopes have been stamped and shipped and should arrive soon.

Head's up: there are still some guys left in the shop for adoption! We've had a few people asking us when we might be re-stocking certain items/colour combos, and though we haven't figured out when we'll be done our next batch of stuff yet - we'll be sure to let you know when we do!

In other local news: we will be participating in the spring installment of City Of Craft April 21st at Trinity St. Paul's United Church (427 Bloor Street West). Lots of pals will be there (Lemonade, Krystal Speck, Fieldguided, Old Weston, Sweetie Pie Press, etc) and we hope that you will be too.

NEW STUFF! SPRING FEVER!

TODAY IS THE DAY. Our shop is officially back in action! And you can see all of our lookbook and product shots on our website too.

These are definitely our favourite pieces yet! Like last time, there are many unique items, but we've also got a few doubles here and there.  There are a whopping 100 items in our store right now! When you pile all these guys up, it's a really enjoyable explosion of colours and patterns. We really hope you like them!





We had a LOT of fun shooting pics, playing pinball, and eating snacks with our model Michelle. Props to that pretty lady for working late into the night and meeting us in the morning ready for anything! We learned the following that day: pinball is harder than it looks, blowing bubblegum bubbles on demand is also harder than it looks, sunshine is the greatest, and we are easily distracted by dogs (real dogs and hot dogs).



We also couldn't have done this without the generous help of Tim, who gave us A TON of his personal time to take and edit photos.  And big ups to Mike too (unpictured), for being the marker of calm that we all aspire to be, ha. And lastly, thanks to The Pinball Cafe for letting us loiter in your fun space!

SHOP UPDATE: MONDAY MARCH 19TH!


We will be updating our shop on Monday March 19th!

This is a little peek into what leather colours we've been working with: bright white, coral, lime, navy, and teal! There are lots of unique ones, small runs of different patterns and colour combos, etc. You can't quite see everything we've got going on here, but there will be: triangles, zig zags, dashes, loops, weaving, scattered v's, art deco haystacks, and slightly askew lines in a variety of colours (white, black, peach, hot pink, electric blue, and lime). Keep it simple? Yeah right! And we made a few extra hot pink clutches this time around due to the very positive response we got last time.

In the meantime, we'll be putting on final touches, screwing on hardware, snapping snaps, taking photos, printing envelopes, and generally going nuts trying to figure out how to list all these guys in our shop! We can't wait to share everything with you. Spring is gonna be BRIGHT.

Thank you so much to all the people who've been checking in with us and anticipating this release (Anthology MagWit & DelightFrizzifrizzi, Finely Inc, Ldn, and more)! It's been a really awesome motivator for us.

Gonna go feed Danielle her breakfast now, as I have her chained to her sewing machine (joking, no I don't!....we don't work together during the day....I monitor her remotely....pssht!)

Although I can't show you pics yet of our new pieces I can show you a few shots of what is consuming our days and nights- thread, hardware, tools, paint and messes.
