Brand of the week: Matine's small leather goods

Minimalist designs and a fresh take on accessories are hallmarks of DC brand Matine.

The retailer specializes in small-batch leather goods, which are either handcrafted in the brand's DC studio or manufactured in small quantities in Portland.

At Matine, the leather is truly the star of the show. Highlights of the brand include the Tilly Baguette, the Capucine Daypack, the Printed Wild x MATINE card sleeve and the Jones City Tote. The products range in price from $24 to $360. 

Designer Carolyn Misterek's exploration of leatherwork led her to start the brand in 2012. To see all of the accessories, you can visit Matine's site.
