Father's Day, Leather Luggage, and a few other things


It always seems easiest to send a list of things out, instead of crafting something more eloquent. My use of email lately has just been to "get to the point already." I hope you don't mind!

Father's Day is just around the corner! Summer is kicking off which means travel (stepping my toes back into leather luggage). And Christmas will be here before you know it...

  • ​The Strathmere leather weekend bag has officially launched and is available for sale! Each bag is numbered, limited quantities available per year...this bag is an absolute joy to use! Kindly allow 6-8 weeks for delivery after placing your order. (Get on "The Strathmere List" at the bottom of this page for an exclusive launch discount being announced later this week...)
  • I've added hand-dyed variations of my popular leather cigar cases. Carry 5 or so cigars in this hand-dyed leather Boveda cigar case. Carry 3-4 cigars in a smaller variation (see it in dark brown or green).
  • Related to the smaller cigar case, this lovely variation with floral printed sheepskin is absolutely divine and would make the perfect gift for a Sister of the Leaf!
  • One more related to the smaller leather cigar case: my leather supplier made an exclusive-to-me leather, US hide πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, drum-dyed in Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ in a lovely "Tan" that will age beautifully. I only have 4 of these cigar cases available. Once they are gone they are gone.
  • Non-cigar related: leather coasters are a hit!
  • Safety first when lighting those fireworks this Summer: hand-cut hand-carved 5" candle matches are the safest way to go.

As always, poke around my site for other interesting goods. These leather oven mitts, for example, are ready to ship.

I'm in Pittsburgh this weekend for a cigar event. I stamped the event logo onto a cigar case for the raffle. I can customize just about anything to match your company's branding. If that's of interest, just reply to this email.

That'll do it for now! Unless something really exciting comes up, it'll be a while until I'm in touch again. Have a phenomenal next few months and I look forward to making something for you!

P.S. word of mouth is how I'm doing things. Please forward this email to anyone you know who may be interested!

Hi! I'm Aaron Aiken

I've got a bunch of things going on from making and selling premium leather goods, to a newsletter specific to the cigar industry, and a few other ideas that will be launched a bit later. Check out the links below for all the things and also subscribe to my personal-ish newsletter below, which is really just a catch-all place for various updates that relate to the stuff I work on.
