Quality Leather Bags & Wallets

Made in Norfolk

The Shop

Leather goods shop crafting minimalist leather wallets, belts, bags, bracelets, passport holders, & more. Have a belt made while you wait or watch us personalize one of our 10 wallet designs for you.

Belts Made While You Wait


Everything we sell is made with the highest attention to detail right here in our tiny workshop. Watch us hand-stitch a wallet or use our century-old cobbler's riveter to make a belt. Not only can you watch the process, but you can talk directly with the person who makes the goods.

Handsewn Wallets

Stitching That Lasts

Stitching by hand is time-consuming, but the result is stronger and more durable than machine-sewn goods. All our leather goods are completely sewn by hand in our small showroom downtown.

Who's the Boxer?

Werther Arcelli immigrated to America to build a better life with his own two hands—fighting professionally as a boxer and becoming the welter weight champion of New England in 1934. Naming the shop after my great grandfather is a small way I can honor my family heritage as I strive to make a living with my own two hands in a slightly different way.
