The Maker

Working with my hands has always brought me a great deal of satisfaction. I also hate spending money on goods that are not made well. As a result of this, if I can't find it, I will make it. This is how CATELLIERmade was born, I wanted a better wallet. 

During the summer of 2013, I decided to find some cheap leather to experiment with and made my first wallet. Garbage! It was pure, unadulterated garage. However, with a little research, I purchased some better leather and invested in some higher quality tools and the wallet began to look like what I wanted. 

Now, If I'm not satisfied with the quality of what I make, I will not ship it. I know you don't want garbage either.

the names

Schofield, Plymouth, Windsor, Tabernash -  Every wallet, bag, tote or accessory name has a personal meaning. They are all places of great importance to me, places I've lived or places I've traveled to with my wife. Some of the names are place of refuge in the mountains. 

Read the "About The Name" in each of the products you look at. Some of the stories are fun, some are more serious. Ether way, they these places are important to me and my family.
