Shhhh... don't tell anyone

Shhhh... don't tell anyone - Espacio Handmade
Wanna know a secret?

I used to create jewelry out of glass and steel that was sold all over the country, particularly in museum gift shops.

Ready for another one?

I learned everything I know about leatherworking from YouTube.
It started as your pretty standard story.
After I got my degree in graphic design, I met a guy, bought a condo, and worked for a design firm.
But it wasn't long before my entrepreneurial spirit was begging me to quit.

And I did! I built a successful women's jewelry line and moved to Austin, TX. My jewelry line catered to women who appreciated lux and well-designed, handcrafted accessories.

So how did I end up in men's leather products?

It's simple - I noticed there was a void in the men's market for this same caliber of accessories and I jumped right in.
Enter Espacio Handmade
I got on YouTube and devoured all of the leathermaking and leather smithing information that I could.
But where to begin with men's accessories?

I started with my signature hand-stitched, leather flasks - the ultimate accessory for men who like to get up to no good and look damn fine in the process.
My men's line has expanded into other lifestyle essentials like my ultra-popular Big Spender Wallet and every traveler's favorite - the Pocket Notebook & Passport Pouch.
And it'll keep moving forward, thanks to you!
Because of your support of local, small businesses like mine, myself, and other artists, can continue to design, create, and keep the entrepreneurial spirit thriving.
