From the Maker
Hi there! This is Tim, the owner of Parsell Artisan Works. My goal is to use my upbringing and experience as a third-generation artisan in my own Michigan studio to produce remarkable leather goods that combine the robustness of American designs with the quality of craftsmanship found most often from European ateliers.
I started in leather goods for outdoorsmen in 2016 and have continued to move further into fine leatherworking and everyday items (like wallets & handbags) ever since. My forte is in bespoke and custom leatherwork, though I'm constantly trying to bring elements of my best work into my more widely available products. This is by far the toughest challenge in my designs, but it brings untold value and quality for our customers and any artisan worth their salt should always strive to improve their craft.
On a final note, if you follow our social accounts or newsletter you'll find that we don't hold ourselves as seriously as other makers might. I absolutely believe that beautiful work can coexist with humor and humility, and I welcome feedback and dialogue from my followers, peers, and customers whom I consider extended family.
Thanks for stopping by!
