LIMITED EDITION ITEM: This one of a kind upcycled brief/tote bag is repurposed from "Milton's" suede welder's jacket.
I imagine Milton, like many of us, is a hard-working family man. An American. I’m sure Milton was a craftsman at his steel shop who took great pride in in work and much care for his tools and equipment. Like many craftsmen I’ve seen in my own time, he probably cleaned and maintained his tools well, which in turn, took good care of him and his family. Judging by the gentle use of his welder’s jacket that recently came into my possession, he even took great care of his work gear.
Unlike the first welder’s jacket I had to work with (see our first Suede Welder's Tote), this one was found with very few spark burns or oil stains. Still, the slight wear and tear of the ultra soft suede material gives it a nice patina and feel in your hands. Like any thing made with great craftsmanship, it will only get better with age.
