I officially started Standard Projects at the beginning of 2014. This has been something I have been working towards years. My interests have lead me through sculpture, wallpaper making and rug weaving to name a few. The first focus of the business with be making leather totebags. I have always made my own purses, backpacks, etc. because I couldn't find what I wanted-- functional and well crafted with a simply beautiful aesthetic. This approach is going to overflow into the other goods I am designing and define the caliber of work made by others in the studio as I develop the residency program.
