Typically when I do custom work, it's simple manipulations to set designs (ie: longer straps, more pockets, different colors, etc.). Every once in a while, I get a request for a completely custom piece, in fact, that's actually how CHC started. Now understand, I love being able to design a piece from the ground up alongside a client, but the trickiest part is making sure it's a piece that will end up the same, sculpturally, as what is in their mind and also be appropriate to the brand, considering it has my name all over it....literally:-)
This whole concept came to a great success when my friend, Piero, was going on a trip to Peru and was in need of a travel/camera bag. He wanted a bag all his own, solid black with simple features, roomy inside to house his camera and laptop, and adjustable in wear from his shoulder to across his body.
Fifteen hours later, the Taico Bag was complete and standing tall at:
16"W x 12"L x 7"D
16" drop from the double shoulder straps
24-48" adjustable crossbody strap

For the sake of rest, travel and learning, I've decided to hit pause and close shop from September through December.

This summer marked the send off of my apprentice of 3 years, Lucy. What a pleasure it's been to have worked alongside her; learning as much as teaching.
My time with her has taught me a new appreciation for even the tiniest of details, that the right question can open up new realms in creating and to not be limited by others perception of you, age or otherwise.
