2016 Power of the Purse

2016 Power of the Purse

March 07, 2016

For the past 5 years Hand and Hide has participated in Power of the Purse, a fundraiser for Girls Inc of the PNW. In previous years we've been paired up with a local 'purse-o-nality' and designed a bag reflecting that person's passions.

This year things played out a little differently. We were not able to be paired with anyone, but Girls Inc creatively found a way to keep us involved. So, we designed and made the first ever Traveling Purse, and it appeared in a series of videos with everyone from the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, to the Trailblazer's mascot Blaze. You can see the videos at Girls Inc's Facebook page.

Custom Motorcycle Bag for Art of Gear

February 15, 2012

I was contacted by Owen of Art of Gear to make a custom bag for his motorcycle. I agreed to make him a great deal in exchange for a review on his website (unfortunately no longer around.) Owen sent me some photos of the space available for the bag and gave me free reign to come up with something suitable. I made a few sketches and sent them back for his approval before getting started. The design is very similar to my bicycle bags, utilizing the same durable oiled leather and the...
