I’m Mister Jeffrey and I operate Local Hardware out of my small home based workshop. I have been creating sewn goods since 2009 when I started making small sling bags to carry minimal items to lecture halls while at university. Even before that time I have been involved in design from wood working to welding. For the past 7 years I have been helping Brad Dowdy develop products for Nock co. Recently we’ve made some changes that free me up to pursue Local Hardware in a more meaningful way.
Local Hardware was created to bring simple useful products to market for outdoor urbanists. Being based outside of Atlanta, GA there is a constant balance of urban and rural areas. Wilderness is everywhere in the city and should be experienced, Local Hardware was created to facilitate that effort. Over the years Local Hardware was used as an odd combination of collaboration and personal releases without much promotion or structure.
With the upcoming re-launch of the brand I am focusing the release and putting it in the public’s hands. There will be standard items that will have batches each month. But these items will be made if minimum orders are met. I will also be working with other companies to develop products and packages for one-time releases. All items will be presale/group buy style so I can best schedule for successful production.
