Makr Wallets- 07.11.08
NOTCOT Note: Here’s a new post from Anna of Sub-Studio. I’d also like to say congrats to Jason Gregory on Makr, which he coincidentally emailed me about earlier last week ~ the leather line of simple wallets are stunning!
I saw these Ć¼ber-sexy wallets over at Kitsune Noir. Made by Makr, each wallet is laser-etched on leather. They are all limited edition, so you’d better click over there fast if you want one! The wallet patterns are minimal and functional, with little surprise details here and there (detail images after the jump).
The wallets from the One series (above) are super simple in shape and function - a single pocket card holder for cards and folded cash. Maximized for ergonomic comfort, the curves of the opening mimic the natural position of thumb and forefinger. See more on the next page, as well as the full press release and link to the line sheet.
The Two Wallet - a symmetrical double pocket cardholder for cards and folded cash with a contrasting interior and exterior finish.
The Angle Wallet. I love the side-etched logo on the hinge of the wallet.
For the Flap Wallet, the logo is hidden behind a strap, keeping the focus on the leather.
The Vertical Pocket with a snap closure.
PRESS RELEASE: MAKR LEATHER AND FABRIC RELEASES FIRST COMPLETE LINE OF CARRY GOODS
What started four years ago as an experimental art project of made-to-order items has developed into a proper brand and new presence in the luxury market. Makr Leather and Fabric is proud to announce the release of its first comprehensive collection of handcrafted products. This initial offering of carry goods includes wallets, cardholders and pouches. Expect in the coming months, a variety of bags, totes and camera cases.
Makr is a small carry goods company founded and run by designer Jason Gregory. The brand’s focus is on simple, elegant items to carry your life in. Makr is an appreciation of the simple, the durable and the timelessness of thoughtful design. A vision of the useful as artful—and the opportunity to apply that principle to the everyday. The idea is to continue rethinking and creating practical objects that provide relief from the typical and disposable.
All Makr products blend the tradition of handcraft with the contemporary. Leather is laser etched, yet hand sewn. And soft deerskin is paired with industrial wovens. Materials are carefully selected and every item is designed, patterned and cut in house. Pieces are produced in small quantities by an even smaller group of people, and all assembly is done by family-owned companies within the U.S.
