News — Shoulder Pad

Testimonial: Shoulder Pad

Posted by Fallon Foster on

Shoulder Pads are usually pretty routine but what isn't routine is getting such a nice letter from the client!  The client was a 70 year old postal carrier who's vintage mail bag was getting unmanageable.  I was able to get his pad in the mail within a day or two so he'd receive it as quickly as possible.   Shoulderstrap arrived this afternoon and l couldn’t be happier with it. As the photo shows, even the color is a good match. This will make all the difference in what I can carry, and that’s important to me. Important too is...

Shoulderpad, Cushioned

Posted by Fallon Foster on

I make these with some regularity, both the padded and unpadded versions.  They're so steady I don't normally post them on the blog but I particularly liked how this one came out.  I understand it'll be handy on an upcoming vacation to Italy.

Prototype Padded Shoulderpad

Posted by Fallon Foster on

I've been meaning to bang out a prototype for a padded shoulderpad for awhile now and a recent order gave me the opportunity.  A client in Denmark wanted a long, all black shoulderstrap with a padded pad and I was perfectly happy to oblige.  The pad started out like the usual variety but then I added a layer of fabric and then two foam applicators.  That was all wrapped in some nice, supple deerskin and the result turned out pretty darn well.  Normally when I make a prototype I wind up with a long list of changes to make in...
