Based in Berkley, CA, Claflin Thayer &Co., is a unique leather goods and accessories line created by leather goddess Liz Thayer. This all American family business was inspired by Liz’s father, Edward Claflin Thayer, who opened a leather shoe shop around 1820.Some of the most popular items the line carries are the adorable baby booties and “JoJo Lips” bags. Each leather hide has a history based on the animal it was taken from, no leather will be identical. Claflin Thayer &Co.’s website states that blemishes, scars and marks on the leather will only add to the uniqueness of the item.
Perfect for a night out, the “JoJo” lips are made in different colors and are also offered in metallic or suede. We definitely see these bags being used for carrying ID’s, phones and make-up on a night about the town!
Although the website only lists the “JoJo Lips” and baby booties for sale, Liz Thayer has made some other really cool items listed on her blog. In the past she has designed studded leather bags and jackets, this woman has an eye for fashion!
All items are designed, cut, and constructed on a made-to-order basis; make sure to check out some of Liz’s work.
