Rogue Journeymen: A leather brand created by bike mechanics

In 2013, the mechanics at the shop started building merchandise walls and tool organizers out of planks of wood in the shop back yard. When additional display tables were needed we went on to build wooden tables. When our luthier friend brought over boxes of scrap guitar wood for our pot belly stove, we got the idea to repurpose them and build furniture out of unwanted guitar necks, headstocks and random cut-outs. Even though it was fun making furniture, our true calling was working with a material that's much different — leather. The brand Rogue Journeymen was born.

Our shop location has a big influence on the development of Rogue Journeymen. Topanga Canyon has always attracted creative minds to its small community since the 1960's. The music scene of the 70's put Topanga on the map with artists such as Neil Young, Jim Morrison, Mick Fleetwood and Joni Mitchell. In fact, our shop building was once the rehearsal studio for the Eagles and the Doors. Today, the creative energy continues to grow and has inspired us to become artisans in our own way.

Rogue Journeymen has evolved a lot since the beginning. We started out making leather valet trays, keychains, and mason jar holders. Now we have several types of leather belts, wallets, camera straps, guitar straps and more. We have also started crafting canvas tool bags, duffle bags, backpacks, and aprons. Inspired by the vintage canvas bag designs, our bags have full leather bottom and straps with our special unique touch on all of them. Some of the canvas used for the bag body is from World War II tents. We've also incorporated Pendleton Wool into the design as well. We welcome you to visit our shop to check out these truly unique handmade items.
