a Mr. Lentz giveaway

Well, it sure has been a long while since I put together a giveaway for my leather goods. y’all have been so patient and I am going to reward the winner ( 3 winners total) to one of my newest designs, the Double Leather Passport Wallet. The idea for it started a few years back when I kept receiving multiple requests for a Passport Wallet that would hold two passports, one for the traveler and one for their spouse typically.

Leather Passport wallet for two passports

Well, here it is and I decided to take things a bit further. The Double Leather Passport Wallet is not only designed to hold two passports, but it will come with a medium sized lined notebook and steel pen in case you decide to travel solo and want to take some notes. It’s also hold all yer credit cards and IDs, plus a small stash of cash. All the while fitting into regular sized jeans. It is truly a thing of beauty and I can’t wait to start making these and shipping them out to my traveling customers as they journey across the world.

Leather Passport Wallet with notebook and pen

I can go on and on about this wallet, but there are really just a few more important points… One – It’s built with the highest quality Full-Grain, Vegetable-Tanned leather sourced from the top U.S. Tannery. Two – it’s all riveted together and thus built for a lifetime of heavy use. Three: It’s made by hand per order in small batches to ensure you get a well built, solid wallet. Four – It’s covered under my 100 Year Guarantee. Five…see I could go on and on! If you can’t wait to get yer hands on one of these, go ahead and check it out in the shop here: Double Passport Wallet.

 

Oh yeah – a bit more info on the giveaway! It starts today and ends at midnight on Sept. 11th 2016. You can enter using the options above and different entries are worth differing amounts of entry points, giving you an advantage the more you help promote my shop! The winners will be announced within 3 days of the ending. That’s it, have at it!

New Wallet, Name Your Price

Introducing, The Every Man Simple Wallet for $Insert Your Price Here .

That’s right – you name the price. To help promote the start of the new leather section in the shop, I am making a limited run of these wallets and they will be for sale at the price that you enter. Plus you get free priority shipping in the U.S. 50 states! International delivery available at checkout. How much will you pay for Handmade? Check it out here in the Online Shop.

The Every Man Simple Wallet is minimalistic in design, and function. Only need a few cards and a wad of cash? Need something slim and rugged to slip into a pocket? That’s the essence of this wallet. Cut from a slim vegetable tanned top-grain leather, it is both lightweight and durable. The sides have been hand stitched with the saddle stitch method – thus locking in each pass of waxed thread. If, by chance, years from now one section gets cut, the other sections will lock it in place and retain the strength and structure.

Three colors are currently available, all of which are completely natural and vegetable based. The wallet shown here was stained with walnut husks, then conditioned with extra virgin olive oil and beeswax.

Every leather item I make is stamped with a consecutive maker number. This way you know at what point in the history of Mr. Lentz handmade goods your item was created.

Now available in the Mr. Lentz Online Shop.

Everyone had great responses to the Cowboys or Indians question. Personally I feel that they both have their place on the land. Both Cowboys and Indians tend to be productive, hardworking people. They thrive off of the outdoors and being one with their territory. Nature plays a huge role for both of them, and that’s good enough for me.

To celebrate the grand re-opening of the Mr. Lentz Shop, here’s a giveaway that’s easy and quick to enter. The winner gets a free necklace from my shop and the runner up gets half off a purchase of any item.

All items in the shop are eco-friendly and made with natural, sustainable materials. All of the moss, grass and wood pieces use real moss that has been dried and preserved, so there is no upkeep necessary. The wood has been stained with a non-toxic water based dye and finished with organic extra virgin coconut oil. If you would like to read more about the pieces check out my latest blog post on them.

Yeehawwww – 9 ways to get yourself a custom made work of nature. The contest winners will be announced on March 4th, so get up and get goin’.

2011, ’twas Interesting

The Year of 2011 was a significant one for me. It was the year I decided to take one step back from the computer and two steps into my newfound passion of woodworking. It’s the year I decided to put doubts and second guessing aside – and just go for it. In 2011 I began to know myself as a photographer, artist, woodworker, writer, dreamer, thinker, pilot, rabbit breeder, illusionist, spanish speaking surfer, and lover of all things made by people who make things the way they want to make them. 2011 was the year of taking yourself back to the traditional arts, the hand made, the imperfect creations. In that year I inspired myself to work with wood, electricity, leather, jewelry, and more. I can only hope that my dabblings have helped to inspire you as well and spread your creations to your neighbors too. Below are some highlights of the past year…

RoadTripCA_20101112_0029.jpgDamselAndRedwoods_0106.jpgJustRedwoods_0232.jpg

Perhaps the most significant part of the entire year…my inspiration that would drive the majority of my work… The Redwood forests.

BeachAndSea_0160.jpg

And of course, I emerged out of the Redwood forests into my very favorite and inspiring city of all – San Francisco. San Francisco played a big part in driving my Beast Series of Jewelry…due to numerous visits to local trendy taxidermy/art shops.

In celebration of a lot of incredible things happening this month…here is a giveaway! I am very close to completing a secret project that will attach to cruiser bikes, within a week or so of erecting and completing the windmill, about to start learning how to work leather, and on the verge of building new furniture for my house. In a few days I will also be posting the interview and photo shoot with Ritual Chocolate – a local couple who started an incredible and successful biz over the last year. So… let’s get on with it:
WearNature_0029_Giveaway.jpg

This month I decided to change things up a bit, and I think you will like it.

Up for the giveaway this time is anything $32 or under in my online shop! That’s about 14 jewelry pieces to choose from – so go check it out!

Al of the moss and wood pieces use real moss that has been dried and preserved, so there is no upkeep necessary. The wood has been stained with an all natural and non-toxic mix I made using walnut husks and vinegar. I really wanted to create something safe for people to be wearing close to their skin, and there you have it. There are two pieces that include feathers or fur, with these I sourced the materials from taxidermists that sell their excess scraps that would have otherwise been thrown away.


Winners will be picked at random based on the entry rules below.

I Wasn’t Kidding

FishPrize01_0007.jpg

Here is the Guppy I promised to the 2nd place winner, Olivia, in my August Giveaway Extravaganza. This sucker took me at least 10 minutes to photograph, he kept swimming to the bottom, out of view, so finally I held him up to the sky and told him if he didn’t pose now, he would be living in this bag for the rest of his life. One thing to note: apparently Guppy fish breed like rabbits. Good thing I only bought one.

Olivia has named it Nova.
