Inside the Makers Workshop: Fount Leather

FOUNT, started by the husband and wife creative team, Phillip and Jackie Wachter, is a design house based out of Cleveland, Ohio, with a focus on handcrafted leather goods.

“We have a desire to create something beautiful in the marketplace. Something that both the craftsman and customer can be proud of. There are 510 hand punched holes on each set of The Bellfield Tote’s straps. While time consuming, we believe that this step is valuable to create the desired aesthetic that embodies FOUNT. Many of our designs feature the hand-sewn saddle stitch, which is much stronger and more durable than the lock stitch of a machine.” 

Designed and crafted with care in the great American Midwest.
