NATIONWIDE REPUTATION FOR SIMPLICITY IN DESIGN, PRIME MATERIALS & IMPECCABLE CRAFTSMANSHIP

Thomas in the leather workshop

Born in San Diego, CA Thomas Brierton inherited his mother’s creative spirit and his father’s love of the outdoors. He was always drawn to the very basics of creating practicable items with his hands. After graduating college and roaming the country as a skateboard maker, he went back to San Diego in 2010. 

Thomas’ timing couldn't have been better, by 2015 the Maker Movement was gaining traction, and consumers began creating a conscience for where and how their products were built. Armed with a disciplined work ethic, a reputation for honesty and several years' experience operating a business, Thomas started his journey as a leather craftsman.

 Over the years, Bryer’s philosophy is simply to create something with utility, practicality and durability that future generations will be able to enjoy. Something personal, custom and unique that will stand the test of time.

 Thomas has spent a lot of time talking to his customers and refining his designs to their specifications and he personally makes all bags to order from the best materials available. If there’s an item that you don’t see on the site, Contact Thomas and he can send a quote for the custom item.
