Hawks & Doves

Jessica Ullom is a NC based maker who repurposes found materials in conjunction with both new and dead stock American made textiles. She uses these items to produce utilitarian home goods and accessories, as well as kitchen wares.  Her items are functional, durable, and accessible.  Hawks and Doves strives to source raw materials locally and creates one-of-a-kind American made products that are affordable to everyone.  Kitchen items have been used, abused, tested and approved by working chefs and cooks.

All items are handmade by Jess in Raleigh, NC.

Porter Tote vs. Rustic Tote

 - The Porter tote and Rustic totes are available in the SAME SIZES.  Both hides are oil tanned and have a 'pull up'  effect.  They require minimal care and break in/age wonderfully!  The difference is the weight of the leather.  Porter totes are made out of thicker leather and and have rolled and sewn handles.  This is the best choice if you are looking for a work bag or plan on carrying your laptop and other heavier items.  Rustic totes are a bit thinner (still hold a good amount of weight) and are made from domestic cattle and tanned in the US.

Leather Care

 - Our leather goods are made with oil tanned leather.  This means that the hide is already treated with oil and wax.  This tanning method keeps the leather conditioned for a long time, you will only need to treat it every once in a while.  Choose a good leather conditioner or oil and test it in a small inconspicuous spot on your bag before fully treating it.  Oil tanned leather will age with you, and just look better after every wear!

 

Lead Time

 - Most items ship out within 7-10 days of placing your order.  During the holidays lead times may be longer due to high order volume.  Order cut offs for Christmas will be posted on the site.  All domestic orders ship via USPS Priority mail and have a 2-3 day transit time.  Tracking information is provided.

 

Custom Orders

 - Most leather items are available in custom sizes.  Additional fees will be determined depending on the size needed.  There are NO returns on custom orders.
