Stitch & Shutter

by Megan 

Meet Megan

Welcome to Stitch & Shutter! I’m Megan, founder of S&S. I started creating leather goods in mid 2014 when I was asked to create a handmade leather baldric (because I’m the “crafty friend”). With a fine art background in photography and fabric design, I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in various mediums but found “home” while working with leather. 

I truly love the timelessness and durability of leather. I particularly love things that force me to slow down, things that take a great amount of patience and attention to detail. Leather work offers this in many ways.

The cutout collection, the first collection offered by S&S, plays off of my mantra- “a delicate strength.” This has been a recurring theme in my creative work and I apply it to the collection by creating abstract, hand cut pieces that combine fine, delicate lines with the strength of leather. Really, every step of the process being made with my hands is a nod to the mantra, it not only presents itself in that specific cutout work but in all areas of my personal and professional life. After all, I’m pretty tiny and I spend my days schlepping cowhides around and swinging mallets. I like to think that I’m “a delicate strength” and that every woman is as well. 

My goal with the products I offer is to combine traditional craftsmanship with modern yet timeless designs. I’m always stuck somewhere between modern and classic and I think that’s just fine. S&S may be offering leather goods, but these aren’t your traditional leather goods. The pieces in the Stitch & Shutter collection aren’t inspired by a Western style but rather they are informed by my fine art and fashion background. 

So if you’re like me and your closet is filled with classic, structured clothing, these pieces are meant to become staples that pair perfectly with that clean, minimal sense of style. After all, the contemporary woman has “a delicate strength” and her look should celebrate that in every possible way.
