wallets

HANDMADE HIGHLIGHTS at Awl Made Here:
leather wallets!
Use it as a Checkbook or as a “tall” wallet, where you lay your dollar bills flat instead of folding (this is the style I have been using for mannnny years). I make these in different color combos (this one is a distressed brown & mossy green combo). Wallet measures 7 x 3-1/2″ when closed. Opens to 7 x 7-1/4″.
($42) Free 1st class shipping in the US
Thanks!

 

leather car seats: yes!

A TIDBIT FOR TUESDAY from Awl Made Here:
In order to reduce costs, post war car manufacturers used vinyl for car interiors. It had the superficial appearance of leather and was easy to maintain. Vinyl, however, does not breathe, it sticks to bare skin and in hot conditions it causes the person in contact with it to perspire. Leather is a much more comfortable and a much more durable material to use for car seating. Recent years have seen an increase in the demand for leather car seats, which were once only found in the top end of the luxury car market.

clover bowl

HANDMADE HIGHLIGHTS at Awl Made Here:
This is a wet-formed leather bowl…what fun! I’m making them with a natural tan leather that will darken with time & use. This one is heavily oiled to give it that rich brown color. It has a smooth surface inside and irregular sides that measure approx 5″ x 5-3/4″ at its widest.
This bowl is made & ready to ship! ($23, free shipping in the US)
Thank you!
