Welcome to 3pdhandmade.com

What a crazy ride and long journey to get here to this point – an official website for Artisan Leather Goods by 3 Parks Design! I cannot wait to see how it develops from here but for now it is a work in progress. Along with introducing you to my artisan leather creations, I want to share my ‘Confessions of a Leather Worker’, first introduced as snippet posts on the 3PD Facebook page. These are leather lessons I’ve learned, moments in my maker’s life, how-to instruction, and so much more still left to decide on. A quirky little blog by a slightly quirky gal.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will join me on this journey by subscribing!

Ah! Fresh Air

Fresh Air! Who needs fresh air when you get to smell leather all day!?
Yes, leather smells ah-mazing, but eventually I went a bit nose blind to it and usually only smell the yucky. As a leather artisan working in a small space, fresh air is a necessity to escape the bouquet of adhesives, dyes and finishes! So, I enjoy taking walks and hikes in some of the city’s many beautiful parks. Rather with friends, furbabies or just with my own thoughts – three to six miles usually does the trick.
