Born and raised in the Los Angeles county, I grew up heavily influenced by music, arts & media and a strong love for the outdoors.

Dark Water Classic was somewhat born overnight.  I started working with leather because I wanted a new wallet but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.  I wanted something different than what I found on every single website.  Simple, convenient, comfortable & actually made of genuine leather.

With my wide design background, I have compiled a wide variety of wallets, belts, guitar straps, apparel and accessories. 

I welcome collaboration work as well as private label orders.  I enjoy working alongside like-minded businesses and making great friends along the way.

Every item is hand cut piece by piece with a single blade. Hand stitched with two needles and industrial grade waxed thread.  Beveled, burnished and sealed to last. 100% by hand, in Southern California, USA.
