Fresh out of Pratt Institute, designer Ryan Greer started selling screen-printed t-shirts on the streets of SoHo and added leatherwork a few years back when the recession took a big bite out of his bottom line. He makes a growing range of objects in his Fort Greene studio and sells them at the Brooklyn Flea. Greer’s handmade bags — made of leather, cork, denim and felt — are works of high craftsmanship, ranging from stylish cycling bags you can strap onto the crossbar of your bike to totes, rucksacks and briefcases. I especially like this rope tote, which Greer makes in collaboration with Tim Whitten of Marlinespike Chandlery in Stonington, Maine. Alone, the leatherwork and ropework would each be remarkable. Together, they’re a knockout.
