About

I started working with leather in 2013 and launched Smiths & Kings with the idea of designing and making high quality goods at an affordable price. With a graphic design background, I emphasize a clean design with a maximum functionality in all my products.

Our philosophy begins at the intersection of high quality and timeless design. I make goods that you’ll want to use and hold onto. I strive to find the balance in making products that are beautiful but also useful, and it all begins with high quality craftsmanship that I put into each product. Every product that comes out of my shop is made to be used, and used hard.

My commitment to ensuring high quality craftsmanship begins with the process of hand stitching all of my products. Equally important is giving my customers the confidence in knowing there is someone on the other end of the wallet personally making sure that every stitch, every detail, and every product is made with them in mind. When designing new products, the customer experience is constantly on my mind. I always ask myself how the product will be used so that I can make sure that it is useful in your daily life. If you like to sketch and you like to carry a field notebook, what can I do to create a design that allows you to carry your everyday essentials, but also gives you easy access to your notebook? The Indy wallet makes that experience possible. If you have a wedding to go to and you need something that holds just the minimal items to avoid bulk in your suit pockets, the Ludwig keeps things simple for you. These customer experiences are the foundation for what we want to accomplish.

It’s important for me to make goods that are designed to last because with use, they will start to tell the story of the user’s life. There is nothing better and more custom than a leather wallet or a case that you’ve had for 5, 10, 15 years that is still going strong and has created a beautiful patina the reflects your life experiences.

This past weekend I talked to a few customers about the benefits of going slim with their wallets. On top of being more streamlined and looking better in your pocket. Our slimmest wallet, the Duke, is better for your body, less bulk means less future back pains. And sometimes we don’t realize how much stuff we actually don’t need. So this holiday season convert that bulky Billfold wallet into something compact and slim. #handmade #madeinla #leathergoods #smithsandkings #everydaycarry #shoplocal

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. So, I love Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales as much as the next person. But as a business owner of a small handmade leather company, I can’t compete with bigger brands that can offer 30 or 40 percent off. So instead I put great effort in making sure every single item that leaves my shop is of amazing, and lifelong quality. I have a LIFETIME guarantee on all of my goods, because I believe that it’ll withstand years of use. So I may not have any discounts this holiday season but I promise to make goods that you will love and last you a lifetime. Also, if you are near one of my Stockist(tagged and link in bio) and were thinking of getting someone one of my wallets as a gift. Stop by one of their store fronts and take a look for yourself and support one of your local shops. These amazing owners really appreciate small makers like myself and I couldn’t do this without them. #shopsmallsaturday #shoplocal #handmade #madeinla #smithsandkings #leathergoods
