Garrett Kautz, who is a craftsman living in Santa Cruz having a clear mind in order to produce bags with his rich and sensitive skills. He started ‘Strawfoot’, a hand made bag brand, in 2010 and it always attracts us by his huge love toward a bicycle. He used to work at a bicycle shop and he reached to where he is now through the experience of working at a shop. This is the result of what he pursued; things he really loves and things he is able to do to survive.
“Functional and durable production with high-quality fabrics and materials”. He uses domestic materials as many as possible with a traditional way to produce bags and also cares the true meaning of small production in his studio. All hand-made by Garrett Kautz himself.
