I started Bean with the idea to make something out of what would have been nothing. Through the support of others and countless hours scavenging through scrap leather bins, I accumulated a collection of pieces of unique leather. From there I started to create. Necklaces, wallets, card holders and more.
I wanted to give a second chance to the left overs.
All of the products on whoabean.com come from something of a previous life. Our first product, the Arco Choker, came from sleeve fringe of a bomber jacket I made back in 2015. Our wallets have materials from scrap bins and pieces that were giving to me by friends' own scrap collections.
Each product is made by hand. We hand punch every stitching hole, glue down each pocket and closure and sew every wallet together. We take our time and make sure they meet our standards of quality. Even though the materials may once been unwanted, doesn't mean we don't care about the end result.
We care about our products and most importantly you. Before listing any product, we put it through weeks, even months of quality testing to ensure they will last the long haul.
We can't wait for you to get your hands on a Bean product. Please reach out to us on social media or through our contact form if you have any questions.
Embrace the strange.
