2016 has come and gone. It was a busy year, being pulled in many directions. All in all it was an inspiring year. I started working wool felt and I love it. I have two new bags for 2017. The Jet Pack which is a backpack made with a 3mm felt covered by a water proof nylon canvas and leather straps and exterior pockets. The Monkey Bag which is possibly one of the most versatile bags around. It's is also a 3mm wool felt with leather packets. It has 20 different ways to wear it. Monkey bags can be a holster, cross body, backpack and messenger all in one and can be adjusted on the fly.
I have one retail location in Oakland's art district at the Werkshack. I'm open every Saturday from 12-5 and every First Friday from 5-10. The Werkshack is also my production studio which I share with 5 other designer's and Artists. Come by and check us out.
Jet Packs are back packs
Monkey Bags for men and women. Great for traveling.

Platinum Dirt was inspired by my passion to make things. I love designing things around a function. Weather it's needing to just look cool to a clever way to carry your stuff. With the conception of using leather cars seats for a material source, it has inspired me to use as much recycled and found [...]
