About five years ago while in college studying for a bachelor of fine art emphasizing on sculpture I started Faler, at that time Faler Brand. At first I advertised my work on internet fashion forums, to my surprise slowly but surely my work was noticed and spread by word of mouth.To all of my early customers who took the risk of emailing and trusting a stranger in hopes to purchase a wallet from me, thank you! Throughout school I kept practicing, reading, meeting leather workers throughout the United States and studying the craft. Leatherwork became an obsession.
Working with leather to me is more than a craft but is instead an art, an art that over the years has been frustrating, challenging and rewarding. Each work created in my small shop is something that I truly care about and hope that you will as well.
