With an atelier in the historic Haynes Mattress Factory, once the domain of her grandfather, Cheryl Schulke is a bag maker, photographer, and writer. She began working with leather when she received a cowhide in exchange for some photographs—and it spoke to her artistically. Today, her leather working shop, mindfully produces bags and satchels using hand tools and vintage boot making equipment. Schulke also incorporates rare and collected materials into her pieces, and turns bits of materials like antler into useful and fun fashion accessories. Her pieces can be purchased online or at the Houston Urban Market.
