The entire Clark & Taft Crafting Company collection of handmade personalized waxed canvas dopp kits and bags is built by hand by me in my sunny studio in Texas. I am sourcing my materials from the best American manufacturers and suppliers in the industry.
Created in celebration of the long-lasting tradition of handcrafting and leather-working, my focus is on designing items that get better with time. The understated design is driven by an appreciation of function, utility, and longevity.
I love the natural look and feel of cotton canvas and leather and enjoy combining it. I use my two hands, some fav leatherworking tools, and my sewing machine to develop all my products. I have a true passion for small details and beautiful forever living design.
Here are some pics of me working in my workshop, and below you can find a video showing how I make a handmade dopp kit:
