• Craft and Lore Opens Brick and Mortar

    Posted by Chad Von Lind

    Summer of 2016 has been a great season of growth for our small outfit. We've got new products continuing to roll out with great collaborations in the works. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see what's in the works and catch the coupon codes we drop occasionally. 

    With all of all the attention, we've decided to set up shop with a small retail front on North Government Way in Coeur d'Alene. If you're local, please stop in sometime. You can find us on Google Maps or at 6055 N Government Way, Suite 3, Coeur d'Alene Idaho 83815

  • The Enfold Collection, Handmade Leather Wallets

    Posted by Chad Von Lind

    The Enfold Family is growing. We first launched the minimal Enfold Card Wallet a few months ago. We loved the closure design and decided that we needed to offer this same form and function in different sizes. So we've created the larger Enfold Wallet, which will accommodate plenty of cards. We've also pushed our design even further with the new Enfold Field Notes.

    We will be doing a soft launch on the webshop soon, but will be running a Kickstarter campaign for this entire collection in the next month or so.

  • Shinki Shell Cordovan

    Posted by Chad Von Lind

    If you're interested in a more readily available Shell Cordovan leather, I have access to some quality Shinki Hikaku Leather from Japan. My current Horween Shell Cordovan is extremely limited, with only a little bit being available to me every 3 months or so. So if you're interested in receiving a Shell Cordovan product sooner, and with more color options, please contact me with what you're interested in.

  • A Busy Season

    Posted by Chad Von Lind

    I'm happy to announce the completion of the Port Wallet Kickstarter campaign! It's been a hectic couple of months covering shop orders and building a few hundred wallets. I couldn't have done it without all the great support from my backers, friends and family. So thank you for a great campaign! 

    Expect to see wait times on shop orders being reduced, and some new products being posted over the next month.
