Based in San Diego, California, fusing traditional western durability and the minimal design ethos of Japan, their mission is to create unique, handcrafted, high-quality, meaningful and personal items that you love to carry with you and help tell the story of who you are and is built to last for generations.
Friday & River strives to eliminate waste at each step in the production process. For example, they don’t cut around the scars and marks that are found on every side of leather – they embrace them as unique and special and incorporate them into othe products. The spirit of embracing imperfection, and using only the necessary amount of materials in each product is part of what makes Friday & River unique.
A percentage of proceeds are donated to one of several causes including cancer research and support, international aid, and children in need.
Process & Materials
All leather goods are handcrafted with the highest quality materials following traditional leathercraft techniques and methods.
All jewelry is made by hand and the materials for each piece are carefully selected and crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail.
Friday & River know that the things you choose to carry with you on a daily basis are very personal, so each piece is extremely limited in quantity (often one-of-a-kind), to insure that each item is unique to its owner.
