Erin Templeton
Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Erin Templeton began making leather accessories in 1999 before studying shoemaking in London, England, and leatherwork in Australia. By 2007, Erin moved into an actual tailor shop and studio, where she could lovingly
hand-craft each of her designs in recycled leather, imported cowhides, or a selection of exclusive and locally tanned elks and bisons. By using minimal hardware and simple, strong construction, Erin's designs allow people to adjust, change, and make each bag their own.
