My name is Kristin, and I am the owner and maker behind Hollis Leather, a leather goods company based in St. Louis, MO. I’m passionate about using time-honored leather working techniques to craft sleek and modern leather bags. The art of leatherwork comes to life in my shared studio/storefront, where I craft each piece from start to finish. With a focus on showcasing the natural beauty of leather, I employ minimalist designs that highlight the material's unique characteristics. My signature style includes raw edges, hand saddle-stitching, and woven details, all of which lend an understated elegance to each piece. I especially enjoy working with supple nubuck leather in delicate pastel hues, accented by tough hardware for a captivating contrast. I’m excited to share the beauty of leatherworking with you and am committed to crafting pieces you will enjoy for years to come.
