our story

LONG STORY SHORT

Handmade goods. Genuine leather. Quality hardware. Simple, well thought out design.    Crafted for daily use. Made in the USA.

ABOUT US

We are Dedra and Bill, two creative-types based in Knoxville, TN.

Having formerly worked in the fields of photography and graphic design, we’ve found our path leading to this, the most rewarding of careers, Weekender Leather Goods.

We love the process of designing and handcrafting. It really is that simple. We love taking an idea and creating something useful and timeless. Something that will last season after season.

Using quality materials, our designs lean toward an enduring simplicity, with a belief that, just like life, uncomplicated is better.

WHERE IT’S ALL MADE

Each item we sell is handmade, start to finish, in our Knoxville, TN studio.

We are very hands-on and not too keen on simply designing a product then shipping off the design to be produced anonymously somewhere else.

So there’s no play on words with us, we “literally” handcraft all of our goods.

FACTORY-FREE

No assembly lines here, just artisans focused on quality. More art studio than office really.

OUR MAGICAL FORMULA

Loving what we do. An appreciation for quality, small details, clean design and functionality. An expectation that our products last a long time. And…..two perfect little dogs that spend their days training us, the ability to not take ourselves too seriously, as well as an admitted fondness for sarcasm.
