From The Heart
“I design objects that are extremely functional and have been described as works of art.
I am all about recycling, up-cycled and sustainability, but what about creating something that won’t be thrown out. My motto is Non-Disposable leather goods. Each piece is built for life.
In our world of disposable products, DiG leather goods are meant to last a lifetime, and longer. The materials I use and the craftsmanship are of the very best quality, and stand the test of time. I would be honored if they were handed down from the original owners to other generations.”
Don Irving G., Artisan
Our wallets are all hand cut and hand sewn using the traditional saddle stitch technique. This assures your wallet will last for generations. We use brand new modern designs that are highly function with minimal space.
Check out our new Designer, a great gift for the artist. Our Mr. Field notebooks are hand sewn using the traditional saddle stitch technique. The Mr Mustard and the Designer use our Techsew 2750 industrial leather machines, to create a thick and natural looking stitch. These notebooks will last for generations. Our large Mr. Mustard can also hold a phone, or many pens or artist pencils.
We offer a modern classic styled bags. All of our designs are practical and very functional. We use only the finest vegetable tanned leathers. We offer hand stitched as well as industrial machine stitched. These bags will last for generations, we guarantee it.
OUR LEATHERS & THREADS
We use the finest leathers and threads available to us. We only use environment friendly vegetable tanned leathers in our products. We never work with Chrome tanned leathers as the chemicals used to produce the hides are highly toxic.
We currently have stock of some top grain leathers from the famous Chicago tannery, Horween. We are also stocking the amazing, durable and water resistant oil tanned leathers from SB Foot Leather Company. This is the company that supplies all of the leathers to the Red Wing Boot Company.
For hand sewing we use the European Ritza Tiger Thread as well as Twist thread. Our Tiger thread is 1mm thick and the Twist Thread is .55mm. The Tiger thread gives a more robust look, where as the Twist thread has a more refined look.
We also use top quality suedes for the inside of our Barrel bags. The suede is shoe quality, so it is highly resistant to water.

Designer & Artisan
“I started working with leather in high school, carving "leaf" belts for the guys and handbags with desert scenes for the girls.
I have been on a long journey since then including: reupholstering Jaguars & Rolls Royce’s, designing and supplying seating for Earls Restaurants, to designing stages for international events.
Graduating in 92 from Emily Carr, with a major in Industrial Design I became more and more digital.
Longing to work with my hands again, In October 2016 (after returning from Burning Man ), I decided to open Dig Leather Co.
My drive is to create something special, and built like a tank so it will last forever.
I want my products to be your friends, highly functional and sexy.”

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I just received a Mr field note book from DIG leather as a gift. What a great note book. Very slim and neat with great craftsmanship and stitching as well as my initials stamped into it. The leather is of the best quality I’ve seen, and includes card slots for easy access, and a perfect writing pad with a pen holder
If your looking for a very sleek and cool note pad/card holder this is a must, very happy with this note pad and very convenient to take with you when your on the go
Don made an amazing Dopp kit for a Christmas present for my husband. I was really impressed with the quality, everything from the leather, lining and zipper. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for something handmade...way better than anything you can find in a mall.
Absolutely LOVE my Ms. Lavender handbag. Craftsmanship and quality are exceptional. Customer service is outstanding.
Don made me a wallet that was perfect as my all-round tool. It contains my credit and business cards, it hold my cell phone and also conveniently holds a pen and notepad. In fact I liked it so much that when my wallet was lost I quickly purchased another one with Don. It is clear that the quality and construction of the wallet is a product that will last for decades. I think he should charge more for this great product!

I so appreciate my hand crafted leather wallet from DIG I bought two more as gifts. I am really rough with my wallets and this one is standing up better than any I have ever owned!
The workmanship, design and unique designs are exceptional. I absolutely love the products!
I love my clutch! It's great when I'm just using it on a day basis with the great shoulder strap ... but I take the strap off when I'm doing an evening out and it becomes the elegant clutch that all women look for.! Just enough room for my cellphone, business cards and my Favorite lip gloss. What else does a woman need when going out On the town. I must get the tote that matches...
The unique design is what sets my accessories apart from all the others. I absolutely love it !
The Tank is on my Christmas list of must haves...and if Santa comes thru... he could get The Irving...so sexy.
