  • New KickStarter Campaign Launched for the Dakota v2 Zipper Pocket

    Posted on May 24, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    We have just launched the KickStarter campaign for the Dakota v2 zipper pocket. We are anticipating to have the item be ready for general availability closer to end of June or early July. By joining our KickStarter campaign, you will be able to get in on the early bird special and receive our first batch of production releases.
     
    So what have we changed for v2?
     
    With the feedback received from our customers, we have made the following changes:
    1. We have made the Dakota slightly bigger to house iPhone 7 Plus with a slightly thicker case. We have learned that not all iPhone users use Apple's leather back cover.
    2. We have swapped out the silver plated zipper with a black gunmetal plated zipper for a more stylish and modern finish.
    3. We have made the cash pocket on the inside to allow for a slimmed down version of our Journey card wallet. So when you purchase the Dakota v2, it will come with a separate card wallet that is portable whenever you need to travel light.
    4. Dollar bills can now lay flat inside the Dakota v2.
     
    The original Dakota phone pocket was well received and liked and we are simply making a great product better! Join our KickStarter campaign today!

  • We have just launched our first ever Kickstarter campaign!

    Posted on April 18, 2017 by Jerry Lee

     

    Here at Story Leather, we are embarking on a new journey as we look for a new method to provide a wider selection of ready-to-ship goods. We are often asked why is everything custom made to order? Why does it take 30 days for me to get something with my name on it? Why can't I just buy this nice wallet and get it tomorrow? These are questions that we ask ourselves often as well, and then one of our customers suggested to us why not use Kickstarter as a way to test and see if there's a market for your in-stock goods?

     

    Well, here we are, launching our first Kickstarter campaign for a new card wallet that we have designed. Our intention is to produce this card holder in mass quantity and price them fairly just so that it's easily approachable by first time Story Leather shoppers, and also serves as a value item for long time Story Leather customers. With these mass-produced items, we are able to achieve a greater economy of scale so that we can price them more competitively to other brands with similar offerings on the market. Again, we strongly believe that the quality of leather goods and craftsmanship truly will make our offerings an attractive and appealing proposition.

     

    Please come and support our Kickstarter campaign today.

  • More Than Artisans: Qind Design

    Posted on March 16, 2017 by Krystal Contreras

    How do you achieve a sophisticated style without sacrificing character? You take inspiration from Qind Design creative director and founder Victor Nartey. As a hardworking entrepreneur, we were thrilled to welcome him to be part of our More Than Artisans initiative. The Story Leather team interviewed Mr. Nartey to learn more about his brand, products, style, and story in hopes of inspiring other artists and entrepreneurs to find what is unique about themselves and to follow their dreams.

    Qind Design (pronounced “Kind Design”) is a curated collection of polished apparel and accessories with a touch of traditional African design patterns. Reaching this unique style, “was the result of an evolutionary process,” Nartey described about the establishment of his brand; adding that after starting off as Qind Online- a lifestyle magazine- he and his team, “decided to launch an art merchandising brand which included scarves and accessories… in order to generate supplementary revenue.” After launching the online store, the Qind design team found that the best selling items were those that included African print, thus, motivating the team to focus more on integrating those patterns into the brand’s style.

    However, Qind Design is about more than just about selling clothing and popular items. Nartey expressed that the word kind “has always been at the heart of the brand’s ethos, being kind to yourself and the world around you. Through Qind Design we offer our clients opportunities to be kind to themselves through elegant beautifully crafted apparel and accessories.” This is also a part of what makes Qind Design so unique. Nartey explained how sophisticated menswear often comprises of dull and boring colors such as blue, black, and grey. However, Nartey contended that “Qind Design is all about breaking that mould, that men can indeed wear colour and carry it off well.”

    It takes a creative eye to fabricate designs that differ from the norm. That is why Nartey constantly observes those around him to keep a, “look out for trends running through the mainstream and those who stand out and are different.” Taking inspiration from the world around him, Nartey typically spends most of his days either working on designs himself, or with his design team. This is the reason why Qind Design has such a wide variety of apparel, shoes, and accessories ranging from scarves to sunglasses.

    Nartey and his team are busy creating fresh, inspiring designs every day, aiming to one day build Qind Design into an iconic menswear brand known for its elegance, timelessness, and vibrancy.

    “I love what I do and it fits with my strengths. I am thoroughly creative, constantly bombarded by ideas that I want to bring to life. I love people and making them feel good about themselves. These two elements come together in my business.”

    - Victor Nartey, founder of Qind Design

  • More Than Artisans: Eleet Fashion

    Posted on March 9, 2017 by Krystal Contreras

    With the abundance of social media sites, magazines, blogs, and influencers, it’s easy to find style inspiration from all over. However, what happens when you just don’t connect with anything out there? You take it upon yourself to create your own style, that’s what! And, that is exactly what one stylish young man had to courage and creativity to do.

    Our More Than Artisans initiative strives to support local artists and entrepreneurs by sharing their stories. This week, we focus on Lucas, the founder of the men’s fashion and style brand, Eleet Fashion.

    We interviewed Lucas to learn more about the origins of Eleet Fashion, as well as his inspirations, journey, and goals.

    Story Leather: What influenced you to start your brand? / What is the story behind the establishment of Eleet Fashion?

    Lucas: When I started our page, I was sitting in my anatomy class during senior year in High School, bored, and not sure what I wanted to do with my life. I remember trying to get into the "street style" world and trying to learn about it, but I always struggled to find a page that could help me with that, and whenever I found something, they would be posting things so unaffordable, that it wasn't even worth following. And so I started Eleet Fashion, I wanted to help real people to better themselves, while staying realistic in what most people are able to afford. I always wanted to have my own brand and as time went on I realized, I was already building a brand with Eleet Fashion, but I was building it the other way around, and we are still on the way.

    unnamed-2.jpg

    Story Leather: Where do you derive your style inspiration from?

    Lucas: My mom always tells me that since I was a kid, I would always prefer receiving clothes and shoes as gifts rather than toys. Of course, all of us are influenced by our experiences in life, and the cultures we grow up around and the people we grow up listening to, and me being a drummer, always involved with music, made me open to all kinds of arts. But, like everyone else during the time we started the page, I was mainly inspired by Kanye West, Pharrell Williams. Those guys that were around making awesome sneakers at the time. Shoes were always a big passion of mine, ever since I was a kid. Some of the Air Yeezys are still my grails (sneakerhead term), and with the sneakers, came the clothes and the details put together on every outfit.

    unnamed-4.jpg

    Story Leather: What makes Eleet Fashion unique?

    Lucas: I believe the attention to details, and just how serious we take every photo we post, the content we produce for brands, and that attention to detail and professionalism goes into every single aspect of our work, be it our captions, photos, giveaways, anything we do. And my unique ideas, as far as clothes go, are very different, I'm very into the futuristic and unique clothes and shoes, the laceless, zippered, glow in the dark, strapped sneakers, the strangely cut, with unique fabrics and textures clothing, that kind of stuff. I try to slowly implement that into our page, I say slowly because people need to get used to that kind of thing, and be able to wrap their minds around the idea, step by step. My goal is to become a brand that does unique things for unique people.

    unnamed-5.jpg

    Story Leather: What are your short term and/or long term goals for Eleet Fashion?

    Lucas: Short term, I'd say keep bringing things that our followers enjoy, continue producing the content for brands that we enjoy doing so much, and eventually in a not-so-long term, I want to keep producing content for brands, but in a larger scale and I want to make Eleet Clothing line and sneakers, things people will be able enjoy, and afford.

    unnamed-6.jpg

    Story Leather: What motivates you to continue building this brand?

    Lucas: We've come a long way since we started with our 0 followers, but we are not where we want to be yet. We started the other way around of what brands typically do, we are building the brand, and its following,  before we have our physical products available for everyone to buy. Also, the fact that many brands are loving the content we produce for them, motivates me a lot to keep going. Small achievements like, one of the photos we produced for Coca Cola during their Christmas campaign last year, being labeled brand favorite, one of the photos we took for Amazon Video being used by them on a future campaign, True Religion using our photo on their social media, those kinds of achievements rekindle the flame and keeps us going.

    Story Leather: What does a typical work day look like for you at Eleet Fashion?

    Lucas: What we are doing the most now is producing content for brands. We are always connecting with brands and doing collaborations with our page, and because of all that attention to detail, and the creative eye I developed with time, after seeing so many photos and videos, and reading articles, brands have been enjoying our work, and really appreciating the photos we take with their products, it makes me very happy. In our daily work, we are typically connecting and closing content deals with brands, taking and editing the photos for the brands, curating the best outfits we see and reposting some of the best to instagram, we are always engaging with our followers on our snapchat too, giving them a behind the scenes look, and exclusive information and photos. My mom is my major daily help with the page, she helps on everything we do.

    Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 10.00.39 AM.png

    Story Leather: Where do you see yourself and your business/ brand is 10 years? 20years?

    Lucas:  I see ourselves producing content for brands on a larger scale, something I have found to enjoy doing very much, and I see our Eleet Clothing as a well established clothing brand, that has its solid fan base, and that people enjoy owning and wearing very much. And the money, as Roman Atwood says, "Money is a byproduct of what you love". If you'd like to join us on that journey, and be part of it, add us on snapchat and follow us on instagram, both @eleetfashion.

  • Case Of The Week: Anselm Coin Purse

    Posted on March 7, 2017 by Krystal Contreras

    Free yourself from the mess of carrying chunks of change around with an Anselm Coin Purse! As with many of your leather goods, our Anselm Coin Purse comes with a pre-made standard design, but also has the option to be customized. This week, we take a look at one customized Anselm Coin Purse that stands out from all the others.

    On the outside, the coin purse looks as stunning as our pre-made Anselm Coin Purse; with a fine-grain burgundy exterior leather made using only premium genuine cowhide and lambskin, woven design, and golden zipper.

    However, it is what is on the inside that makes this coin purse so unique. In place of the matching burgundy interior the pre-made purse has, this customer designed the purse to have a pop of color. Upon opening the coin purse an illuminating shot of orange jumps up to greet you. Despite the color change, the interior of the coin purse is made with the same care, craftsmanship, and quality leather as the pre-made cases. This purse was custom-made to reflect the personality and preferences of the customer. Whether orange was the customer’s favorite color, or they simply wanted to brighten up the inside to see the coins better, our leather artisans were able to accommodate the unique design without delay.

    Although the change to the Anselm Coin Purse may be small, when choosing a leather good, especially one that you are likely to use every day, you want it to look as good as you can imagine. If a small pop of color represents your bright personality, feel free to add that pop! However, changing the color of the leather good is just one option you have when it comes to customizing your Story Leather case, wallet, or purse. Contact our team and work with us to push the limits as to what you can customize and create.

  • Spring Wedding Outfit Ideas ft. Story Leather

    Posted on March 2, 2017 by Krystal Contreras

    Spring is a gorgeous time for a wedding. If you are planning on attending a spring wedding this year, we have a few outfit ideas you would look great in- without taking away too much attention from the bride! As you may know, our Dakota Phone Pocket is an everyday essential for carrying and protecting your phone, cards, cash and more. However, just because it is an everyday item doesn’t mean that it looks so everyday. The Dakota Phone Pocket can be as dressed-up as you are on the big day! Handcrafted and made from premium, genuine leather, the Dakota Phone Pocket will serve as another stunning staple to your look.

    Lovely Lilac. Over the past few years, we have seen pastels as a recurring spring fashion trend. And, of course, why would we ever want it to go away? Pastels for the springtime is as classic as floral patterns. However, you will want to stay away from florals for spring weddings, you don’t want to blend in with the arrangements! Instead, style a whimsical pastel purple or lilac maxi dress with a mix of neutral and bold accessories. The shoes and jewelry should be neutral and natural colors to drive more attention towards the dress. However, to complete the look, you will want your clutch or purse to be a dark color in order to contrast and compliment the rest of the look. Added details to this look include a purple Slate ID phone case, as well as a deep purple Dakota Phone pocket to hold everything you need. You may not even need to bring a clutch at all!

    Stunning Sky Blue. Similar to the set above, styling pastels requires a mix of soft and bold accessories. Style an adorable light blue midi dress with a dainty silver pendent necklace, bracelet, and rings. Add small hints of black to the look with black bowtie heels and jeweled earrings. Finally, bring a black bag to carry your gift for the newlyweds, your camera, makeup, perfume; and of course, your blue genuine leather case that is holding your phone and other everyday necessities.

    Tantalizing Tan. Despite it being spring, you can rock traditional fall colors and still stand out. Try a glittering gown of either a combination of black and gold, or black and tan. However, make sure that the tan or gold is soft and not overpowering. Again, you will want your accessories to serve as your bold statements. Pair your dazzling dress with black or nude heels, natural makeup, and a black clutch. For this look, either a black or tan Story Leather phone case will serve well to complete your look.

    Pretty in Pink. For those who love the girly look, don’t be afraid to express your personality! Style your pastel pink dress with elegant black and gold jewelry and accessories.  Add a bit of sophistication with a minimalist watch, pendent necklace, purse, and a stunning leather phone case. Finally, sport either nude or light pink heels to compliment your pink accents.

    No matter what your style is, you can find a way to express your unique personality with Story Leather. Visit our Polyvore page or Pinterest account for more great style ideas and other fashion posts. Also, browse through our selection of Dakota Phone Pockets and other phone cases to find the right one for you!

    Have a great time at the wedding!

  • More Than Artisans: ifonista

    Posted on February 16, 2017 by Krystal Contreras

    “Travel not to find yourself, but to remember who you've been all along.”

    This saying could not have resonated more with stylish phone case designer, Lucia, founder of ifonista. As a young girl growing up in Colombia, she was surrounded by fashion. With her mother being the one in charge of the Colombian beauty pageant every year, Lucia learned about runways, catwalks, and style diversity in the fashion industry. However, Lucia did not pursue fashion when she moved Boston. After spending the rest of her childhood in the US, she went to college,studied finance, and began a career in the finance industry after graduating. After six years in the finance industry, numerous travels, and one extraordinary engagement, Lucia realized that her life was changing. She took a step back and “... thought, well, I’m engaged, I’m going to start a family, I want to be happy... I was miserable working in finance,” so she took a leap back into the world she had all but left behind, fashion.

    After discovering the horrendous prices of high-end designer phone cases, Lucia decided to design her own- with fabric, a bag of affordable bejeweling gems and some glue. Inspired by the various cultures and craftspeople she observed on her travels, she produced stylish results. Finding that her designs were a hit with her friends and others who caught a glimpse of her phone cases, she was driven to build her own website; thus, creating ifonista.

    Using her inherent eye for fashion, and her passion for cultural expression, Lucia has curated nearly a dozen unique designs. Every product is handmade and designed by Lucia, who makes each case with the intent of telling a story, or representing a personality. Although it may have been a risk to invest so much time and money into this business endeavor, ifonista is on the rise. As Lucia’s business grows, her materials improve. She had started off with cheap plastic casings, gems, and fabrics, and is now stepping up the ifonista brand with Swarovski crystals, intricate imported fabrics, and genuine leather casings from StoryLeather.

    So what’s next for ifonista?  The artisan assures there will definitely more designs and products, as well as mix of high-end and affordable accessories for people of all backgrounds.
