About

Small Hours is a one-woman operated studio dedicated to creating understated leather carry goods, accessories, and plant hangers. Each item is thoughtfully designed with a simple aesthetic and handmade in small batches from start to finish.

Production notes
Small Hours products are made from cowhide leather, both vegetable-tanned and chrome-tanned. Most items are sewn with an industrial sewing machine, some of them are hand-stitched, or use a combination of machine and hand-stitching. Small Hours works with local suppliers when possible and all production is done in-house.

Commitment to sustainable practices

Small Hours uses simple and efficient processes in every step of production to minimize unnecessary waste of time, space, materials, & resources. We strive to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible and encourage others to do the same. Our products are packaged minimally to reduce waste. We also re-use packaging materials and encourage others to do the same. We prioritize use of recycled, recyclable and/or biodegradable shipping materials.
