Description

During this class, you’ll learn to shape our full-grain, vegetable-tanned utility leather. Each piece is cut, dyed, stamped and assembled by you. In the end you'll walk away with a heritage good created by your hands and ready for whatever life brings your way.

For what else to expect, check out our composition from a belt-making class with Patagonia Ballard.

What others have said about our leather belts:

"Rugged & Comfortable, ★★★★★: "I'm a big guy, and usually my belts wear out after about a year. I've had this belt for a couple years now, and it's only gotten better with age. It's a more solid piece of leather than other belts I've owned, and it's aged well. The worn leather look is something I particularly like, because you can't fake two years of wear on leather. I expect I'll be wearing this belt for years to come." - Zach J, 2019

What others have said about our classes:

Switch it up from dinner and a movie with a local company's leather-working classes." - The Seattle Times

"I loved the staff's connection, the simple approach and Ragknarr [the shopdog] - perfect," - class attendee

customer & product care

handcrafted

There is no mass-manufactured answer to human experience. We are two humans designing and crafting pieces that we are obsessed with - they begin as one of a kind concepts and small details change piece to piece. Our leather is characterized by small differences in dye, aberrations, range markings and varying grain patterns. We ask that you rejoice in the differences found in your specific piece. Learn more about our leather manufacturing processes here.

guarantee

We built it - we'll fix it. We’re the humans behind your product and we are dedicated to making sure you’re over the moon about your new heritage piece. Your product is intended for a lifetime of use - so please contact us if anything needs repairing or replacing. The best way is to send images and any explanation of the issue to repairs@uphilldesigns.com and we’ll respond with next steps.

leather care

Leather is an amazing material and with proper care our products will last a lifetime. Here’s what we ask. Keep it away from salt water. Buff out scratches with either your hand, or leather oil (here’s one from Otterwax) - this will aid in the rich ‘patina’ that is only possible in full-grain leather. Leather conditioner can treat leather that, after time, has begun to feel dry or brittle. Please test any oil or conditioner on a small, non-visible portion of your product. Oils and conditioners will darken the appearance of your product.

canvas care

We used a waxed cotton canvas for our adventure bags. This material is natural, beautiful, and will accumulate a marbled patina over time. Any scratches can be buffed out with your finger, dirt and spills can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Do not machine wash or dry. While our canvas begins as a waterproof material, normal wear and tear will reduce the waxed layer. Reapply fabric wax (such as Otterwax) as needed to these areas, testing on a non-visible portion of your product first.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
