All hand-made in his studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Derek VanHeule’s DVHCo label was created out of a desire for products that are strong, simple and well thought-out. Making leather goods for everyday use and everyday people, DVHCo products are necessity-based with no extra frills, making high quality affordable and attainable. The initial run of DVHCo products includes six products, all made from hand-dyed, vegetable tan leather. The Snap Wallet and Billfold Wallet are both hand-stitched with heavy-waxed nylon thread and military grade SK-30 snaps, the Key Fob features a black over steel button stud, the Belt features holes are spaced closer together for a more personal fit plus a beveled inside edge for comfort, the strong and simple Glasses Case includes a lens protection cloth and the Guitar Straps which are 1″ wide and made to custom lengths. Starting at $35 for the Key Fob, all of DVHCo’s products are available from their online store: www.thedvhco.com
