Dean from Ohio and a faithful return customer (Card Case, Key Holder, and Journal) just sent us this image of his Brown No. 92 Card Case with etched and painted stripe. Circa 2006.

Bike Frame Bag, Reinterpreted

Just added to our web-site!

The vintage one above is from France and sadly, the leather is shot. We enlarged ours and of course, hand-stitched it. Made in Amish Country, USA.

Cell-Phone Images by Henry

Our last Amish manufacturer (2005-2008) did not have a call-box so we provided them with a cell phone that they kept charged at a neighbors house. I just found these images that Henry, the eldest son, took sometime in 2007-2008 on that very cell phone. It was a bit of surprise considering they are not supposed to have their photos taken. We certainly didn't photograph them when we were with them. But, since Henry took these of himself, I thought I would share them. I think the top three illustrate his funny side but all seem to show the huge pressures that are placed onto his shoulders. Henry was 18 at the time and the oldest of 11 kids. Sadly, in August of this year, they lost their father, Ben to Lymphoma.
