I am excited today to tell you all about a project I’ve been working on for the better part of this year! It’s called PACT.
My friend Darrin and I have formed a partnership centered around great design and built upon a highly principled foundation. Our first collection of products has been over 5 years in the making and reflects an uncommon refinement, a deep respect for the material, and an ethos of minimalism and simplicity that goes deep.
We have decided to pre-sell our initial collection via Kickstarter, so that we can acquire the specialized equipment necessary to produce it.
Specifically, we need lasers.
Because these pieces are pushing the edges of modern leather-craft in ways that no one else is doing, they require extreme precision to produce. You see, all five pieces in the collection are made using nothing but leather. No buckles, no clasps, no rivets or snaps. No stitching and no glue. Just leather—the best we can find, cut to sub-millimeter tolerances, and then carefully woven and folded together by hand to create fully integral cases.
We’re really proud of these and I would be honored if you’d give them a look over on Kickstarter.
Like any crowdfunding campaign, it’s critical that we get it in front of as many people as possible, especially in the early days. So I’m reaching out to my Tumblr friends to see if you’d help me spread the word. If you like what you see (and even if these aren’t the right product for you) it would mean the world to me if you’d share it with your friends and followers (or reblog this).
Thank you!! —Ben
