Bikes in Trees started as an Instagram account dedicated to photos of bikes in trees on the campus of Purdue University and has since morphed into a handmade leather goods operation run by me, David Harmon. It's a long story... But feel free to ask me about it if you really want to know. Each item you see here is hand-cut, hand-stitched, and hand-finished. I utilize traditional leatherworking techniques to produce heirloom quality goods that, with the right care, could be passed on to the next generation. In addition to these hand-building techniques, I primarily use leather sourced from American and Italian tanneries, solid brass hardware, and various threads to ensure the best possible product I can make. Over the years, I have also delved into different dyeing and finishing options and my work often incorporates batik, marbling, and other hand-dyed applications.
