Presenting our newest design! This all-leather bin pull is perfect for tidy drawer faces. The shape of our bin pull mimics the look of vintage metal bin pulls, but it’s made with sturdy leather, warm to the touch and soft on impact.
Like Portland’s Morrison bridge, our bin pull is a clever feat of industrial design, utilizing hefty American-sourced equestrian leather for opening even the heaviest of drawers.
“The Morrison” bin pull is handcrafted, sustainable, and always American-made in our Oregon workshop.
We use the same, high quality, vegetable-tanned leather that has always traditionally been used for equestrian sport, so it’s a natural outdoor material (saddles, reins, bridles, etc). Our American vegetable-tanned leather is infused with waxes in the tannery to stand up to horse sweat, mud, and rain – in other words, just like riding a bicycle!
For architects, draftsmen, and draftswomen, engineers and designers, there is no finer gift than a handcrafted leather piece. It always makes a memorable statement to potential clients and bosses – but if well-chosen, it will also be a useful tool for their work.
At Walnut Studiolo, our products are designed and handcrafted by former architecture principal Geoffrey Franklin. All our products are inspired by things he wanted for himself, but couldn’t quite find on the marketplace – so he made them himself!
