Noah Marion and I go way back, at least in web years. About 4 years ago, after a feature on an earlier version of this site, I visited Noah at his atelier in Austin, Texas and watched with amazement as Noah made a wallet for me. I still have it and I still use it every day. The man knows how to create some of the best handmade leather goods on the planet. If you’re in the Austin area or plan to be, stop in and see this creative gentleman and tell him Brett sent you. The address is at the bottom of the post.
Noah’s handmade leather goods collection has grown consistently over the years and, true to a prediction that he made way back when, he has outlived and outlasted the leathercraft fad. From hats to apothercary, Noah has it all. That’s one of the reasons why I included him on my HM100 list. Check out his online shop and be warned: you will not get out of there until you’ve seen every single glorious thing and picked up something for yourself. Go to there!
About the brand:
Since 2006 Noah Marion Quality Goods has focused on untreated, undyed natural vegetable tanned leather in order to allow the user to personally bring the design to life. Each person will interact with their wallet, bag or belt differently and therefore it will truly become yours with use. Please keep this in mind when using your goods, they will change, they will age, they will darken. This is the goal, they get better and better with age. A water spot here, a coffee stain there just adds to the character of the piece. If you have any questions please contact us.
