  • All New Apple iPad Pro 10.5" and 12.9" (2nd Gen.)

    Posted on June 8, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    The iPad Pro 10.5-inch and the 12.9-inch have been unveiled at Apple's WWDC 2017.

    The designs are more or less the same, except for the internal hardware upgrading making for a faster and more powerful model. But aesthetically, they remained the same.
     
    What is new this time around is the introduction of the 10.5-in., and this is getting people excited. Many felt the 12.9 was way too big and heavy, while the 9.7 didn't give a big enough canvas for drawings and real professional work. Taking cues, Apple gave us the 10.5 in., slightly bigger, but more powerful than ever!
     
    Many customers have already been asking us about custom leather cases for the 10.5. Today we are announcing that we are now taking custom orders for both the new iPad Pro 10.5-in and also the 12.9-in (2nd Gen). The new 12.9-in is the same leather case as the one for the original 12.9, so customers of the old 12.9 leather cases can continue using their existing cases.

  • 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!

  • Dakota Version 2.0 to be Launched Next Week on KickStarter

    Posted on May 19, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    The old saying goes "If at first you don't succeed, Try, try, try again." Next week, we will be launching a brand new Kickstarter campaign for a refined version of our popular Dakota phone pocket. Last month, when we launched our Journey card wallet on KickStarter, we were able to gain some traction, but ultimately we failed to meet goal, and the campaigned ended with us disappointing the backers.  From the experience, we learned quite a bit, and we learned what to do and what not to do with crowdfunding campaign.

    From the experience gained from our first campaign, we will be launching a second campaign next week.  With a more thought-through planning and execution, we are hoping the outcome will be different in a dramatic way!  For now, I would like to invite our readers to preview the campaign and hopefully we will get some of our existing customers here on Story Leather to pledge to our next campaign once we finalize it next week.

    Here's a link to the preview: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/storyleather/1129537799?token=4fbd0d89

    Have a great weekend!

  • All the Buzz Around Apple's Upcoming iPhone 8

    Posted on May 5, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    Everyone is talking about the upcoming release of Apple's new iPhone, and yet we are only in May. With all the buzz and rumors around what Apple will have in store for us, let's summarize what we will expect:

    1. Alongside the brand new iPhone 8 or iPhone Edition, we will have the iPhone 7s and the 7s Plus

    2. The new iPhone 8 will have a new curved AMOLED display

    3. A 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen

    4. No HOME button

    5. Wireless charging

    6. Iris scanner

    All these are rumors and what "analysts" are speculating. Quite frankly, everyone is just looking for Apple to give us a new look to the iPhone. Call it whatever you want to call it, but just make sure the phone looks and feels different, and it will sell like hotcake when it comes September.
    Rest assured that when the new iPhone 8 comes out, our team of leather artisans will be ready to produce a fine line of custom leather holsters for iPhone 8, alongside our regular staple of classic leather cases and back cover for the iPhone 8. Stay tuned as we update you with more iPhone 8 news as it breaks.

  • 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: 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.

  • More Than Artisans

    Posted on February 23, 2017 by Krystal Contreras

    Our company was built by dreamers; hardworking dreamers who know what it’s like to create something bigger than themselves out of sheer determination and will. That is why, here at Story Leather, we would like to showcase other determined and hardworking entrepreneurs and artists and share their stories. Story Leather was founded as a bootstrapped startup business, so we know how challenging and difficult it is to start a company or pursue a dream from scratch. Our More Than Artisans initiative aims to support other dreamers by letting their voices be heard. Sometimes an innovative artist, brand, or product gets lost within the vast abyss of media today. We strive to work against that issue by promoting small businesses and artists to help provide them with a new outlet and media exposure.

          We strive to share what makes you special, what motivates you, inspires you; and learn more about what challenges you have faced, how you overcome, and where you see yourself and your brand in the future. Our passion is telling stories, whether it be through customizable leather cases and goods, or feature articles focusing on up-and-coming influencers. We hope that in sharing these stories, it will not only inspire the featured artist to keep going, but also inspire others to start working toward what they have always wanted. No matter your ethnicity, class, background, gender identification, or age, you have what it takes to make your dream a reality.

          In addition to promoting artists and entrepreneurs of all types, we also welcome the opportunity to work with designers and young brands looking for a manufacturing partner or production team to help produce premium quality leather goods. We have previously worked with brands such as ifonista and Qind Design to not only provide leather goods for their online stores, but also cross promotion. Their stories can be found on our blog page and throughout our social media.

     

          If you are interested in collaborating with us and being a part of More Than Artisans, contact us by emailing collaborate@storyleather.com. A member of our team will then contact you to learn more about you and your brand’s story. Our goal is to provide you with the tools and support you need to pursue your dream. We are more than a team of leather artisans, we want to help our local community, support local artists, and most importantly - give back.
