Kenton Sorenson designs simple, elegant leather goods in his Wisconsin studio. His pieces are made from salt-cured, vegetable-tanned leathers from “unbranded male cattle hides raised by American ranchers – a type less than 1% of all available hides.” Each piece is “cut, oiled, conditioned with beeswax, and hand stitched using a heavy thread prior to the installation of hardware when appropriate.” Shown above is the Short Stay Bag. The bag has a padded handle with baseball stitching and a shoulder strap. All hardware is nickel plated. All this handcrafting and attention to detail isn’t cheap; the Short Stay Bag is $1700.00. Kenton Sorenson also offers an iPad envelope case, iPad sleeve, iPhone cases, and other items in his online store.
