About Us

Welcome to 98th Parallel, where vintage inspiration meets contemporary craftsmanship.

Based in Fort Worth, Texas, my small artisanal workshop serves as the birthplace of every meticulously crafted piece. From a quest for a perfect wallet, It led me down a path of curiosity and creation.

I'm a lone artisan, wearing many hats as the designer, creator, and curator of every item that leaves my hands. From the initial spark of inspiration to the final stitch, I pour my heart and soul into each project, ensuring that every creation is imbued with authenticity and excellence.

Inspired by the elegance and sophistication of vintage pieces, our designs reflect a sense of refined taste and timeless style. From handcrafted bags and wallets to bespoke belts and accessories, every item is infused with a sense of history and heritage echoing the craftsmanship of bygone eras.

Drawing inspiration from the rugged landscapes of Texas and the rich tapestry of vintage aesthetics, each item at 98th Parallel is crafted with the utmost care and precision. We source the finest leathers from trusted suppliers, ensuring that every piece possesses a supple feel, exceptional durability, and a natural beauty that only improves with age.
