Each item is carefully made by hand in Minneapolis, Minnesota. All items are precisely cut to maintain the perfect dimensions and stitched together by hand with two needles and waxed thread.


You can tell a lot about a craftsman from their edges and finishing. All exposed edges are burnished with a natural compound and beeswax to seal all the fibers and ensure your product will last a lifetime.
