Born in 2009, Walnut was formed after founder Geoffrey Franklin was unable to find the accessories he was looking for in order to customise his 1978 Bianchi road bike. Like any get-up-and-go chap, Geoffrey cracked on and came up with his very own unique designs for leather cycle accessories, his wife Valerie opened a store on Etsy, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Working with top quality, small-batch, USA-sourced leather, Walnut combine modern design with traditional methods within their small workshop in Portland, Oregon. Each piece is handmade and completely individual - the result of the natural variation that occurs in leather. Walnut’s products are available in honey, dark brown and black finishes and could be matched up with your favourite Brooks England colour schemes to great effect!
