Uniquely-designed and custom-designed leather bicycle and beverage accessories.
I started Walnut Studiolo because I wanted leather accessories for my bikes (a custom Renovo original wood frame: www.renovobikes.com and my dad's old Bianchi that went on the Seattle-to-Portland (STP) that I had powder-coated in classic cream and brown) but I couldn't find anything like I wanted. So I decided to make my own.
I love good design, as a U of O architecture alumnus, and I loved learning how to work leather as a new medium. In these leather bicycle accessories, I'm expressing my love for good design, architectural concepts, and natural materials in my favorite mode of transportation: bicycling.
My goal is to make high-quality, beautiful, durable, and most of all functional components for your bicycle.
In the process, I've also designed some non-bicycle leather items as well, including a reusable six-pack holder and reusable 4 x 22oz bottle holder, and a map/blueprint carrying tube.
