From time to time, I like to shout out my favorite people, things, places, etc.  Below is a short list of my current Likes.  If you've followed me for a while, you know I don't at all mind shouting out my liking of fellow leatherworkers who also are in the business.  So don't be surprised by my choices here, I would love to see everyone WIN at success....by now, you should know that.

Heyltje Rose, leatherwork:  I first met Heyltje at the Horse Backstreet Choppers Smokeout in 2010 in Rockingham, NC.  She has that very thing you want out of a leatherworker....style.  Something that lacks within 99% of all leatherworkers in our market genre.  Big plus is she specializes in lady's jewelry too!  Just some of the sickest and most original designs you can think up.  You can find her here:  https://www.heyltjerose.com/  ---- Instagram @heyltjerose 

My friend overseas:  I have a friend who has helped me for some time now, he use to live in LA doing animated graphics for major Hollywood productions as well as Disney movies.  A few years back he moved to the Tropics of Asia and is living life to the fullest.  He has put together a large collection of handmade leather items suitable for the motorcycle industry and you are SURE to find something you like at:  biker-wallets.com

FOOD:  Druff's Gormet Grilled Cheese -- http://www.yumdruffs.com/

Falstaff Local Bar & Grill (yes, named after the famous beer) -- https://www.falstaffslocal.com/

Civil Kitchen (good locally acquired ingredients) - https://www.facebook.com/civilsgf/

I'll be adding to this list from time to time, thanks for reading.

When we look at the weight and gauge of certain leathers we're having to do a little tactile mathematics. Because our wallets are seldom made from a single ply of leather. We're looking for the right combination of leathers that get a certain thickness and flexibility that we know will break in well.

If you do your research you will find hundreds of websites that sell mass produced thin leather wallets from Asia that really don't have that "special" quality about them. Plus they're basically designed to fall apart in a year or two, so that's right out. No no, you want something that is unique, nicely crafted and built to last don't you? That's the type of gift that really makes a statement.
