Our food canister is made with fishermen in mind, particularly solving the problem of how to keep food protected and insulated during a long day on the boat. Represent Salmon Sisters with our intertwined salmon logo while keeping your food the right temperature all day, whether its soup on a skiff, ice cream on the beach, or leftovers on the trail.
We've created something we are truly proud of. In collaboration with Alaskan leather artist Mary Hayden and the innovative Tidal Vision, producer of 100% sustainable wild Alaska salmon leather, we've made a minimalist wallet sourced from and made in Alaska. Swap your bulky wallet for this subtle statement piece, a snap wallet that will stand the test of time and become more beautiful as it ages. Subtly branded with the Salmon Sisters logo and constructed with pieces of ocean blue and natural brown salmon leather, scales and all, this tiny treasure is a show-stopper.
Our wallets are cut by hand one at a time, hand-stitched, and the edges hand-burnished by leather artist Mary Hayden. She constructs them from 3-4 oz vegetable tanned leather from Wickett & Craig Tannery in Pennsylvania, one of the few authentic American tanneries left today. This leather is sturdy while stretching to accommodate the wallet's contents, and darkens with use and age to a lovely patina. The wallets are hand-sewn using waxed linen thread in a two needle saddlestitch. This kind of stitch is stronger than that sewn by a machine. Once assembled, the wallet is treated with a beeswax-based leather conditioner. The wallet's interior is also leather, not a cloth lining.
Once purchased, you can treat your wallet with any kind of leather conditioner to keep it moisturized and supple. Keep in mind that since each wallet is hand sewn, dyed and made with natural ingredients, they are all a little bit different and have a character of their own.
Mary Hayden, our talented wallet maker, moved to Homer, Alaska from Georgia six years ago. She started working with leather after her son Wyatt was born a year ago. Making something tangible and learning something new from each project she took on was a welcomed reassurance during the strange time of new motherhood. Contact Mary with any questions or inquiries about her work: email@example.com.
