NEW IPSWICH, N.H. -- May 21, 2008 -- Duane Ballard Custom Leather today announced the release of its new line of handmade tool bags. Specially crafted to retain their shape, these custom bags come in a variety of dimensions and will be available for special order immediately.
Originally known for producing some of the finest handcrafted leather motorcycle seats, Duane Ballard Custom Leather has expanded its design repertoire to include handmade tool bags. Crafted out of 100% Grade A cowhide, these toolbags also feature leather-covered endcaps to ensure the bag never loses its shape no matter what is stored inside. The toolbags are available in several sizes to accommodate anything from tools to iPods and rain jackets.
"These bags are extremely functional, but they're also fully customizable," said Duane Ballard, the owner and craftsman of Duane Ballard Leather. "Everything I do is one-off work, so the bags can be tooled with almost any design according to a customer's specifications."
Ballard has over 10 years experience in leather crafting and hand sews, dyes, laces and tools each product himself. The leather toolbags start at $400 and can be ordered by calling (603) 781-7505. Duane Ballard's work has graced some of the most eye-popping motorcycles built in the last few years. His saddles have appeared on bikes featured in Discovery Channel's "Biker Build-Off" series, and have won "Best Upholstery" at shows across the country. Every saddle and toolbag is completely custom, each detail of the design a result of close collaboration with the client.
