Wood & Faulk, the website of Portland-based tinkerer Matt Pierce, beautifully showcases awesome handmade carpenter's accessories. From carpenter's bags to aprons, the works featured at Wood & Faulk are for the stylish wood-worker.
The bags could easily be used as everyday carriers, constructed out of heavy-duty 16oz cotton canvas and soft, honey-colored leather on their bottoms, handles and straps. I can easily picture Matt Pierce's rugged bags appealing to a wide market.
Implications - Consumers are trying to stay classic in their look despite the number of contemporary pieces emerging. Designs that feature a more subdued look are appealing to those who don't want to be overtly exaggerated.
