Robbie Matsumoto from Saint Paul, Minnesota is a leather designer. She designs wallets, clutches, iPod sleeves, iPad sleeves, and messenger bags.  Her inspirations usually come during long walks with her Great Dane or by blaring out fun upbeat music and the she envisions her design, pulls out a sketch pad, draws them up.  She plays with colors and different leather swatches before she starts sewing.  Here is some of her gorgeous work!

      Isn’t is so pretty!! I bet if you contacted her and let her know you had a droid, she could customize you one?? Or maybe they already fit both phones! Worth the email..she is great at getting back to you. Hope it works out 🙂
