Welcome to the TELLER × SILVERCLAW website.
My name is Hiromi and I'm the owner and artisan of TELLER × SILVERCLAW.
TELLER was launched in 2015, out of a desire to create uniquely designed high quality handmade leather goods for those who value quality, authenticity and individuality.
From design to completion, all my creations are handmade by me at my workshop in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2019, SILVERCLAW was born as TELLER's sister brand.
The leathers I have in my studio are more than just the materials I make my creations out of. They are, for me, like individuals in human life.
Out of respect for the fact that leather was once part of living animals, I do my leather crafting as a process of keeping them alive by transforming them into something beautiful, with new looks and personalities that enhance their own natural beauty and character.
Regardless of how they look and where they come from, all the leather I use for my creations are equally important for me and worthy of a new life.
The designs of my creations are influenced by the places I've traveled, the people and things I've been inspired by and the experiences of my life in Japan, Spain and the United States.
Leather breathes and keeps changing in appearance, strength and softness with age and tells its own story. It's my great hope that you enjoy the beauty of its changing character and add a new story to your TELLER × SILVERCLAW product.
