Drawing men into the story and heart of Landmine Design has long been a dream of ours. While we envisioned creating a men's piece, we never anticipated a partnership quite like this one. Seth Davies approached us at a coffee shop we frequent (Two Rivers in Arvada, CO. Go there and drink great coffee). He explained that he works with leather, and would love to partner with us somehow. His heart to see women empowered and lifted out of poverty resonated with ours, and on top of that, he's a talented craftsman. It was an easy yes. Our staff felt energized about the idea of something handmade by Seth protecting something handmade by the women of Landmine Design in Cambodia - just as men desire to protect women. The feeling was electric, and The Fellow was born.
Here are some of Seth's own words. Words that are deep in our hearts:
Here’s to you, Seth, Landmine Design’s first Fellow.
