Joe V Leather is an Etsy shop I discovered rather randomly and I must admit I’m quite impressed by both the quality and the design of many of the pieces. There are pieces which, for my taste, skew a bit… Los Angeles. (An aside: I can make such statements because I grew up in Southern California and lived, for several years, in Los Angeles… it’s a Big brother talking trash kind of entitlement, if you know what I mean. Please don’t think you Bostonians can join in the fun. You can’t.)
But when this artisan gets it right, he really gets it right. This? A piece I’ll be coveting unless one of you lovely readers snatches it up (at its absurdly affordable price) before I do.
I am, for those who would inquire, still accepting belated birthday presents.
