  3. Teppei Teranishi spent nearly 15 years as an innovative guitarist in the California rock band, Thrice. After much success and acclaim, Teranishi now handcrafts leather goods on Vashon Island, just west of Seattle. There in a minimal setting, inspiration is easily found in the shade of mountaintops and sprawling landscapes. The Teranishi products are executed using traditional craftsmanship and exemplify subtlety, detail, and the belief that there is statement in understatement.

    __________________________________________

    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:
