Nick Offerman, who is probably most recognized as the character Ron Swanson from the show Parks & Recreation recently did an interview on Hot Ones. Whether or not you're a fan of his acting, its worth noting that he is also quite the woodworker and craftsman. During the interview, he was asked about his views on getting pizza delivered by drone, which leads to a great section about his views on industrial consumerism:



Now it's fair to say we aren't woodworkers here at Anvil Customs, but the sentiment he speaks about says volumes about the nature of what we do with leather here at our shop. Knowing your tools and materials, making stuff with your hands, and doing it to make something that will last a long, long time are all fundamental facets of the leatherwork we do. Our wallets, belts, and various other products are crafted with care so that while you might spend more on one made by us, you're not going to have to buy a new one in a year or two because it wore out... but you might want to just because of how awesome they are. Now we ham it up on social media sure, because we get to have a great time doing what we love to do, but make no mistake we have some real tenets we live and work by here at Anvil Customs:

  • We have a lifetime warranty because we know how tough our products are, and we stand behind that.
  • We take our time and give each product the attention to detail it deserves.
  • We do our best to make use of every square inch of hide because it's not only better for the environment, but it's also just good business practice. 
  • Our focus is on quality over quantity. When you purchase something from us you're buying from a small business, not a giant factory that pumps out thousands of crap products a month.
  • Our customers mean the world to us. That's why we formed the Anvil Crew, to bring like-minded people together behind our brand. Customer service, communication, and a sincere wish for you to be happy with your purchase are always at the top of our minds.

Re-imagining Mini Long Wallet Interiors

The Mini Long Wallet started out as a way to appease some of our customers that liked the long wallet but just wanted something a little shorter. Obviously we do try to listen to our customers' feedback because that's just good business. The original design wasn't even available as a stock item. But folks saw us make a few as requested by some of our customers on social media and before long it had a achieved a somewhat cult status in as much as a style of leather wallet can have a following. Eventually we had enough interest in them to make a version that was available on the website, and they've sold fairly well over the years. That being said, there's always room for improvement. We're constantly looking at ways we can better the styles and designs of our products.

It is conceivable that in the coming years we're going to have a surge of folks who have discovered the joys of working with their hands. Many people are suddenly finding themselves at home with a new abundance of time and an uncertainty of what to do with said time. Because of Covid-19 people can't go out and do many of the things they're used to, so it would not surprise me in the least if we have a new generation of makers and craftsman come of this pandemic.
