Last of the current restocks - Arc in black Dublin.
Arc in the ubiquitous classic—natural veg tan. Not much to say about this that you already don’t know. It certainly never gets old to break in and witness this leather transform.
Eno in English Tan Dublin. The pull-up on this leather is just so good. Special thanks to the homie @pounceleather for lending a hand with these wallet restocks.
Eno in black Dublin. A leather from @horweenleather that shares a very similar tannage to cordovan and receives a hot-stuffing of oils/waxes. Slightly waxy, almost buttery hand but still maintains a solid, not-too-supple temper.
Pretty sure this is a new one - Eno in Natural Harness. Vegetable tanned and hot-stuffed with waxes/tallows for a more finished look/feel than raw natural veg tan. It even has a real subtle pull-up on the creases. Really beautiful stuff.
Most of the stuff I’ve been semi-quietly working on the last few weeks are up on the site now, including these L-zip pouches. The first run I made didn’t include the Evergreen colorway but here it is for all you Evergreen pack sporting peeps. Also available in Adobe, Wheat, and Black (swipe left). Thank you all so much for your patience and continued support. You all are the besssss 🙏
Another personal project I made recently - a long wallet for my wife’s birthday. One of the first things I’d ever made was a long wallet for her. The craftsmanship is comical and the crappy veg tan I used hasn’t aged well at all but she was still using it some 10 or so years later. I figured it was time for an upgrade. I actually made this pattern years ago while this was still a full time gig and we were in Washington. I’d never even made a tester (we had plans to launch a women’s line so this was shelved and waiting to be launched). It’s basically almost exactly like the first one, except tightened up a little (or a lot). I made this in a mad dash so the stitching is all over the place but hey, it’s usable, and I’m happy to report the pattern worked out ok.
Tl;dr - I made this pack for my son. Yes, restocks are still coming! First off, yes, I’m definitely still chipping away at restocks but there has been a lot of things pulling me away from working on Teranishi Studio projects. One of those things - I’d promised my boys that I’d make them all custom school packs at the beginning of the school year. Here’s the first of three: Oliver’s pack. We sat down together and designed/spec’d this pack out. It’s a lot more “backpack-y” than what I normally make but it was a lot of fun to do something a little more straight-forward. He needed it to be weatherproof, large enough to fit all his books and a lunch box, have a dedicated iPad pocket, and hold a water bottle. I was going over some backpack closure options and I mentioned the traditional clamshell and an L-zip (among other things) and he had the idea of doing a clamshell that opens all the way to the bottom on one side—a hybrid. I thought it was a great idea so we went with it. By far, the trickiest thing to figure out on this pack was the iPad sleeve. I got hung up on the idea of doing a stealth pocket built right into the seam (swipe to the last two pictures to see). It was laborious to figure out but I think it’s a neat detail. Oh, and a custom @chelseafc suede patch on an internal pocket, per his request.
Warming back up with some basics. It’s felt like forever since I’ve been in the studio and making. I’m trying to figure out ways to keep this at least a little more consistent. But for now, I’ll be posting some stuff up soon so keep 👀!
