Distinctly utilitarian, classic and sturdy in design, Wood & Faulk’s canvas and supple honey-hued leather trimmed bags are endlessly suited for weekend excursions and forays into the garage as a handsome tool bag substitute. Growing up in Kansas, W&F curator Matt Pierce tested his hand as a furniture designer, mechanic, plumber, and wood and metal aficionado, which helped him firmly secure his place as a DIY guru on his blog years later. Now stationed in Portland, Oregon, Pierce’s W&F website serves as a DIY forum that doubles as a leather and canvas goods retailer.
Pierce’s DIY projects have been featured on Design*Sponge, and each project beautifully unfolds on the screen image by piercing image. His bags have garnered equal fanfare. The Northwesterner series is crafted from Martexin Original Waxed water repellant canvas and finished off with a soft buttery leather bottom pierced by metal studs. The closures on the bags were originally crafted with a carpenter’s tool bag in mind, affording the bag distinct authenticity. Currently available in olive and grey waxed canvas, the series was inspired by the colors and climate of the Pacific Northwest.
