“I started tinkering around with ideas and experimenting with heavier and heavier fabrics and it was actually a belt that fell apart that got me to pull my first strap of leather. It fell apart and it was just so perfect…I went down to my leather guy that was in my hood and I was like, what do i do? And he showed me and I was like, this is the best and thats how I started. I picked up the material and it was like a lightbulb went off.“
