Introducing Moxie and Oliver!

This spring is already off to a great start! The weather is warming up, the birds are signing, and we’ve brought on some unique new art from a couple very talented artists. Moxie and Oliver combine traditional leatherworking techniques with modern methods to create beautiful and functional pieces of art. From wallets and handbags to guitar straps, watches, and belts, all of their work is crafted with full-grain tooling leather, which holds up against tough use for generations.

Their intricate detailing, folk-art imagery, and subdued use of colors bring and old-school look to their distinctly modern pieces including a wonderful collection of iPhone and iPade cases. All of Moxie and Oliver’s art is crafted in Washington State. Here are a few of our favorites from their collection.

Modern Duomo Messenger Bag

Full-grain tooling leather is the strongest leather available, so it’s perfect for items like messenger bags that will see plenty of wear and tear. The beauty of a piece like this, is that the patina that inevitably forms only adds to its charm. Moxie and Oliver make several different styles of messenger bags, each with its own unique style.

Julia iPad Case

This fully-leather iPad case features a beautifully detailed flower on the outside and a silicone insert in the inside to securely hold your device. Again, full-grain tooling leather offers the sturdiest resistance to heavy use. Moxie and Oliver have a number of iPad and iPhone cases with different colors and designs to fit your style.

Scarlet Flask

Flasks make awesome gifts for any occasion, and well-made leatherwork like this will last for generations. We could easily imagine a flask like this becoming a treasured heirloom.
