Hi, I'm Barrett Alley in New York. I make apparel and accessories like wallets and bracelets. The pieces you see here are all hand sewn from bark tanned deerskin and rare textiles. I create each piece to order using select materials from my personal collection. Contact me directly to place an order.
I begin with a selection of bark tanned animal skins and fabric made from plant-based dyes and fibers. I then cut and sew each piece by hand using linen thread. The hand stitching method I use is the same durable stitch used by saddlemakers for centuries. The result is a beautiful piece of art fashioned entirely from renewable materials.
I've been making hand sewn leather accessories for a long time, but my first loves are movies, music and painting. You can follow my other projects at boly.ro.
