Having worked within the footwear and apparel industry for over 10 years, San Diego’s Dave Mckinney decided to launch Edison Mfg Company—a leather accessories label that not only focuses on making their goods domestically, but locally as well. How local? Well, about 30 steps away and around the corner from Mckinney’s front door lies Edison’s machine shop. Nestled within a converted bungalow in San Diego’s hip, North Park district, the workshop is fully stocked. Among a few stray completes from Mckinney’s extensive skateboard collection is a fleet of industrial sewing machines and everything else you would need to cut, sew, rivet and tan those Edison iPhone wallets that you’ve been meaning to pick-up.
Above and below are a few photos that I snapped on a quick visit to their studio. For those in San Diego, wanting to see their goods in person, come by the Edison Pop-up Shop at Pigment space. It’ll be up for a another couple of weeks. Go on and check em out.
