“I like to experiment with different dyeing techniques so that no two pieces are ever quite the same. Everything, including the stitching, is done by hand and I think it shows in the finished product.”

It started when Christian noticed that his motorcycle needed a new leather seat. He decided to take on a do-it-yourself attitude instead of shelling out the cash for a new seat — so he taught himself leather making, successfully crafting that seat by hand from start to finish. He eventually branched out, crafting well-built accessories from only the most durable leather. Christian is always eager to try out new techniques, hand-dying each item to make sure that two of them never look the same. Once dyed, the pieces are sewn together to form a simple, yet significantly awesome, product.
