Every time you scan through Facebook, turn on the T.V., or flick through stations on the radio you encounter something amazing. It probably seems annoying at first, but if you can allow yourself to step back and look at a larger picture, I promise you'll be impressed. You're probably tired of hearing about Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers refusing to stand for the National Anthem. And you're probably exhausted from hearing about the Dakota Access Pipeline. And I'm not even going to start on the deluge of misinformation and mudslinging related to the 2016 Presidential Election. The fact of the matter remains: People in Our Great Country are passionate about the things the believe in. They care to the point that they're willing to voice their opinions as loud and vehemently as possible. And the beautiful thing is this, they're totally allowed to do that. Our country has a wonderful history of protest. And while it may not change things as quickly as we'd like, many times it's proven to actually get stuff done. It's these "little revolts" -though at times they aren't so little- where American's exercise their freedoms that make America unique and great. Anvil is proud to operate in this Country, and you'll find no lack of Patriotism here. Even the parts we don't agree with we still appreciate.

Now with all that stoicism out of the way, we're going to go cut things and sew them back together while we listen to Rock & Roll and sip coffee. God Bless the U.S.A.

It's a fair question any year, especially in ecommerce, and even more important when you're dealing with hand made to order items. There is a little extra insecurity in 2020 however because of the extra challenges posed Covid-19.

If 2020 has done anything for people I hope that its given everyone some perspective on their day to day lives. Just about everyone has had at least some part of their lives upended by the pandemic, not to mention the myriad of other disasters that have reared up across the globe. I hope that it makes people count their blessings. I have seen a pretty significant increase in comments about folks reconsidering their day jobs looking to get into doing something like what we do here at Anvil...

Re-imagining Mini Long Wallet Interiors

September 16, 2020 3 min read

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.
