Ferdinand's began in 2012 at the Seattle Farmer's Market in Ballard with an all leather version of a reusable paper bag, that was made by Dane on an old tailor's machine in our home studio. Ferdinand's has continued to evolve organically ever since. Today all items continue to be made start to finish in our studio in Ballard in Seattle, Wa.

We believe leather is meant to be used as much as it is appreciated. We value the markings that develop with time, and encourage our customers to embrace what may come with regular use. We use our pieces daily, rain or shine, and we believe the signs of wear that come with use makes the pieces more beautiful.
