The Leather Stool
"I’ve been working with leather for over a decade and have made a lot of these stools during that time. I made some for my friends at Mohinders many years ago to use at events and they’ve had such a wonderful reception. When I was asked to make some more for Mohinders customers, I could not say no."

About Matt Pierce
Chances are, you probably recognize Matt or this timeless leather stool.
Matt, also known by his former brand, Wood & Faulk, has been working with leather for over a decade and has made lots of these stools during that time alongside his treasured waxed-canvas + leather goods.
He still showcases his incredible craftsmanship through side projects and is running The Sunset Listening Club – a monthly meditative opportunity in Portland, OR.
Starting with the raw leathers, Matt maps out the cuts to ensure a good surface area, free from any trouble spots in the leather. Parts are punched using his dies to create clean, and replicable shapes – especially important with the interlocking triangle design.
Parts are glued up with water-based leather cement and then he marks his stitch lines before taking them to the sewing machine.
The Mohinders heritage leather is so beautiful and tough,
and once it has broken in a little, I love it. I’ve broken in a couple pairs of Mohinders shoes over the years and the result is so rewarding and personal once you’ve made them YOURS.
This stool is just like that, if not easier – just sit and enjoy.
