Crafts meet technology.

Today, September 1, marks the official launch of our brand new dbclay.com. Let’s also call today the official launch of Version 3 wallets. Today is a darn good day. After nearly a year in development, Version 3 inventory has finally arrived and is shipping out (we appreciate all of you placed pre-orders / enjoy your new wallets).

I soon brought on my brother Tyler, and hired other friends to help me make wallets…the demand for our hand made wallets was deafening and it was causing and yanking us to grow.

He was my roommate and we also waited tables together at a stressful Tex/Mex joint about 30 miles south of Portland. Mr. Diggles represents, amongst other things, the “Technology” side of the phrase: Crafts meet Technology.
To come full circle, Mr. Diggles and our absolute savior (and Computer Programmer) David Frey, spent hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours building this new website. Per the image below, it is clean:
