ERIN TEMPLETON

Born and raised in the mountains outside of Vancouver, Canada, Erin Templeton started making leather accessories in 1999, while studying shoemaking at Cordwainer's College in London, England.

In 2002, she had the amazing opportunity to rent the boiler room of the Modernize Tailors, and then when the tailors relocated in the spring of 2007, the chance to open her own storefront/studio in their historic location came to be. She has kept the traditions of the space alive, continuing to make products locally, by hand. All designs are lovingly made in-house, in either new or recycled leathers. Customers drop by to peruse hand-picked vintage in the storefront, and talk and joke with Erin as she works on designs in the open production studio.

Erin's life-long fascination with vintage informs designs that defy trends and transcend eras. Minimal hardware and simple, strong construction allow people to adjust, change, and make pieces their own. It is our hope that each piece is able to be a life long friend, and able to mix freely with new and vintage pieces.
