Local Leather Goods for Men & Women

Leather Flasks and Journals handmade in Aspen, Colorado

Our Carbondale Gallery now carries the new leather line by rustic naturalist, Trevor Washko of Cold Mountain Craft. These heirloom quality leather goods are made from oil-tanned bison hide made in the USA. Each piece is hand-punched, and hand-stitched by a unique group of individuals in a little workshop tucked in the mountains outside of Aspen, Colorado. 

Meet Trevor Washko of Cold Mountain Craft

Trevor's inspiration to pick up leather and thread came from a basic, but persistent need. "After many journals failed to hold up to the harsh days, I designed and created a leather cover to protect my thoughts and observations.  Beyond a faint, winding uphill path, I escaped for quiet time on Cold Mountain. There, at a cabin perched at 10,000 feet, Cold Mountain Craft was slowly born."

Handmade leather goods inspired by Aspen's fashion-scene and the nature-scene.

Leather Morning Star BagHarmony Scott Jewelry Design now offers a variety of Trevor's fine and unique leather items using hand-selected oil-tanned hides, which are hand-cut, hand-punched, hand-sewn.

To the left, the secret pocket of the Morning Star Bag is revealed in this two-tone leather bag that has been beautifully hand-stitched.

The men who come into the gallery are always surprised when they find something in a jewelry store. The designs are etched with Aspen Leaves, Fly Fishermen, Trout, Golfers, Elk, Colorado or Texas Flags, a treble clef, and more. 

Beautiful and functional, durable and personal, simple and authentic; my work is a reflection of me, emerging from the place that I call home.
