    Tanner Goods is a small leather goods manufacturer located in Portland, Oregon. They work hard to manage multiple storefronts and offer a wide range of hand crafted leather accessories. They thrive on their attention to detail and appreciation for top quality products. In the future they plan to expand their product line to include non-leather goods such as eyewear and time pieces, while maintaining their strong roots in simplicity and utilitarian product design. You can purchase their products online at:


    Or find them in person here:

    1308 W. Burnside
    Portland, Ore. 97209

    This video serves as a documentation of craft that I have long been interested in as a Graphic Designer, and someone who appreciates hand made goods. It is wonderful to see a company that thrives in the "small batch" business model, and I hope they continue to make good things for a long time coming. The process of making something as simple as a belt can remind us of the roots of what this country was founded on: Creativity, Entrepreneurship, and Craftsmanship. Hope you enjoy it!

    Special Thanks to:

  2. Brothers Chris and Kirk Bray have been producing leather goods for the last ten years. They launched Billykirk from Los Angeles in 1999, learning their craft from a third generation leather maker. A simple leather strap kick started the business, a decade later their collection has flourished into other offerings that consists of bags, belts, shoes, wallets, hats and other accessories. Since expanding and moving their operation to the East, they've employed a group of Amish leather makers to produce much of their line, while wrapping up production in their studio. We visited the brothers over the summer to observe their operation first hand and to discover the beauty behind the process. Photo by Rose Callahan

  5. Ryan is a super talented artist that works in leather. I had the pleasure of first discovering Ryan’s work at a historical fencing club, where he had made a wide variety of armor that was in use during the sparring sessions. Turns out that Ryan does all sorts of leather projects including masks, bags, belts, and other crazy things. Ryan graciously offered to make me a mask for this video. If you would like something cool from Ryan, send him an e-mail at ryan@rampantdesign.com
