Umami Road: Review and Giveaway {ended 12/22/09}

Finding the perfect gift for a friend (or for yourself) can be tricky. You want to purchase something unique, thoughtful and most of all, affordable.

How about a hand-stitched item made from salvaged leather from Umami Road?
Umami Road is a labor of love and the work of artist and designer Jen Pressley. Described as eco-rock-n-roll-craft-couture, Umami Road's collection is a unique work of art  that is both functional and eco friendly... and did I mention gorgeous?


Take a look at this wallet. Stylish and affordable. And also multi-functional! It can also be used as a phone or camera case.


When I received my Umami Road wallet in the mail, two things came to mind.
1- It is so much bigger in person! From the picture the wallet looks more like a coin holder but it's not!
2- Where can I go buy something so that I can flash my new wallet?

Look trendy and save the environment with Umami Road's wallets! Each piece uses scrap leather that would normally be thrown away.
 
They also offer leather cuffs!

BUY IT: Go to Umami Road's site and see their selection for yourself. See an item you like but it's not listed? Email Umami Road and they will list a custom item for you on Etsy.

WIN IT: Umami Road has been kind enough to offer one lucky reader a trendy wallet!

  1. How cute and different! I love that they'll create whatever you'd like if you don't find something just right.

    I think my favorite is the Thriller Leather Wallet.
