Once you have a handmade leather Dopp Bag by Moxie & Oliver in your home, you'll realize that it is so much more than just a toiletry bag! Though we intended these as a Dopp Bag, it turns out they work perfectly to carry just a few art supplies on the go. Wouldn't this piece also make a wonderful gift for the guy in your life (dad, husband, brother) all stocked full of soaps, shaves, and balms? This one is in the Walden pattern with a day of the dead meets green man sugar skull in white, yellow, purple/blue, red, green and antique black. Each bag is hand-cut from a hide of full-grain vegetable tanned leather and then I brand the pattern on, paint it, dye it, and hand-stitch it. The piece is stitched using a waxed nylon thread and a saddle stitch so this travel companion will last for years to come. The dimensions are 11" long by 5" tall and 5" deep - it will hold all the toiletries you need. And because it's constructed of a 3/4oz vegetable tanned leather, the piece weighs less than a pound when empty. Wonderfully lightweight for travel! I am happy to do custom orders - just ask! I can make these in any pattern, or with no patter, custom sizes, etc. The only limit is your imagination.
I'm a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of "Leathercrafted." I'm a certified leathercraft master. I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students. Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older (under 18 must be accompanied by an adult taking a class at the same time). My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you'd like to accomplish - with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
