Some people want leather that comes with a story.
Some people want leather with which they can write their own story.
This concerns the latter: Bexar Goods, so-called “purveyors of adventure” and, more accurately, ridiculously fine leather wares, available now.
Based out of central Texas, Bexar crafts long-lasting goods — wallets, satchels, flasks — that celebrate the hearty naturalism of a good piece of leather. (Say the owners: “All of the natural range markings are visible, which may be the result of where a cow had been scraped by barbed wire, cactus or mesquite thorns … or bitten by a coyote.”)
Very eco-friendly. Very tough. And able to handle anything you throw its way while lasting a lifetime.
Plus, Bexar’s somehow made the Apple Watch … interesting. Their new leather strap, available in a medium brown or tan, works as a beautiful vintage contrast to Apple’s big, slick interface.
Three other items we dug:
A rugged leather satchel with solid brass hardware and copper rivets
Possibly the nicest flask we’ve ever seen, a copper beauty wrapped in leather and delivered in a wooden poplar box
Pick something up.
Then give it a story to tell.
