In no way related to the terrifying new way in which kids are bottling and fermenting fecal matter just to get high (that's Jenkum), Alicia Jepsen hand-makes goods from Hermann Oak leather (a 130yr-old American tannery), individually cutting, dying, and stitching each item by hand to ensure her products are ones you "only have to buy once in a lifetime", which makes for a terrible business model, but again, awesome leather goods. The stuffs:
Wallets: Both initially fitting 10-12 cards but "stretch[ing] a bit over time to hold more if needed", the Windows Wallet's large square holes are "for the true minimalist", while the Speaker Box's smaller perforations are modeled after its namesake, though the contents of either can be used to purchase you some Love Below.
Bikes: Trick out your two-wheel whip with either a screw-on water bottle holder, or a boxy, strap-on tool bag for "essential bike tools", so enjoy hauling around the entire steroid-using, tight-pants-wearing Tour de France.
Misc: Rounding out the goods are a slew of iPad cases, a handsome Dopp kit, and a linchpin-buckled belt, a product that, no matter the quality, will break under the strain of your quantity.
