APPLE GENIUS TURNED LEATHERWORKER
I ended up falling in love with leathercraft, and my new band got quite a bit of attention. With enough encouragement, I agreed to open an Etsy shop.
The only problem was… I was working for Apple at the time! I knew that I may have been breaking some rules, somewhere, but I kept it going. I eventually made my way to become a “Genius” at Apple, the position I had always wanted.
But it eventualy became clear that I had to make a choice: Keep my job, or shut down my shop. I took a leap of faith and went full time with Cave Leather Co.
KEEP PUSHING FORWARD
I use traditional leatherworking techniques and the highest quality leather I can find. It’s all to make the best handmade goods possible.
I love making things. I’m excited to make something for you.
BEHIND THE NAME
These are the qualities of leather I appreciate most, so I needed to find a name that matched. The “A-HA” moment came when I realized that those words also describe CAVES perfectly. Plus it just so happens that early cave-dwellers were some of the first leatherworkers! (mind blown)
My maker’s mark is the entry to a Cave, in as minimalist a design as I could imagine.
