‏‏‎ ‎The Atelier 56 story...

...initially began in 2016.  Lance Mobley began an apprenticeship at Byrum's Shoe Service learning everything about the make of, repairing and restoring shoes.  When luxury goods would come in for repairs, he thoroughly studied them.  About two years in, the first Atelier 56 duffle bag was created by hand-stitch only (pictured below).

Using the techniques of strictly traditional methods in fine leather crafting while understanding how people use items, each product is skillfully crafted with the user in mind.  Today, every item is proudly made in our Pennsylvania shoe repair shop.
