Handmade Profiles: Erin McRoberts of Awl Snap Leather Goods

Erin McRoberts | Richmond, VA


We were planning a trip to New York a few years ago and I went on a month long, obsessive hunt for a weekender. I needed one that could carry all my goods and still leave room for any potential treasures I might discover along the way. Too bad I didn’t find Erin McRoberts back then, because I am totally smitten with her leather work and especially this HotShot Weekender/Backpack hybrid of hers, showcased in her Awl Snap shop. Leather and waxed canvas together? Love it!
