Project Backstage: John Bonawitz of HORN
Written by: Kwesi Adjin Photography by: Ben Ferrari

Brand Name: Horn Leather Goods

Brand Rep: John Bonawitz (Owner/Designer)

From: Seattle, Washington

Info: John does not create in collections – he produces items when inspiration hits or when he sees the need for a particular item.  The brand is currently in its seventh month of existence but it already screams “longevity”.  The name “Horn” came from John’s realization in his prior life at Ralph Lauren that the best trims were/are made from animal horns.  John creates all items himself with a strong eye for detail, quality and durability.  Most of his items are inspired by Americana and a love for outdoor activities like hunting and fishing.  Horn’s accessories retail for $400 and below.  All the leather raw materials are sourced from Napa Valley, California – meaning the items are sourced and made in the USA.
