Barret Alley is a Texas based, one man show, creating beautiful, hand made leather wallets and accessories. This morning he released a few new items, including these antique German plaid cloth bracelets.
Often times- those of us who are Americans, find ourselves yearning for the best quality out of our good ol’ U.S. made products because, let’s face it, cutting corners is what we do best.
Over the last week I've been in beautiful Victoria BC for a friends wedding, but I've also been working on a couple upcoming projects for Free / Man.
