Beautiful soft leather. More than I expected as fits nicely around my wrist when walking and looks so hip. Arrived quickly and packaged professionally. Think I may have to buy more as gifts. Love it!!

I love it! We needed something tasteful to help us organize our incoming and outgoing mail. The richness of the brown leather with the teal walls is perfect.
Urban Article founder and maker
I graduated college with a Fine Arts degree focused on printmaking and jewelry, but did not find work in a creative field right away. So, I worked a 9-5 job and continued making prints, jewelry, and sewing my own clothing as a hobby. Then, after my two daughters were born, my creative endeavors slowed to a crawl until I attempted to re-stitch a leather purse my grandmother had used in the 70's. It was too worn to repair, so I remade it, and immediately realized I was on to something. Leatherworking was a perfect pairing of my creative skills and interests. I loved that I could make useful and beautiful items. After that first purse, I just kept making.
It's been several years and I still wake up excited to do this work. I'm so grateful for your support.
