Handmade Leather Bike Accessories from Oregon’s Walnut Studio

Geoffrey and Valerie Franklin are the husband and wife duo behind Walnut Studio, an Oregon-based workshop that specializes in handmade leather bike accessories. Geoffrey, an academically-trained architect, hand-makes every product himself with the precision he learned to master in architecture school. From the gravity-hacking “Little Lifter” bicycle carrier to the convenient rack-mounted “U-lock Holster” and “Can Cage,” all of Walnut’s goods are assembled in Oregon using only USA-sourced leather. With a relatively affordable price, high quality, and excellent design, you should definitely purchase one of their products for your commuting experience. They even offer cleaning solutions for them. Shop here.
