Part workshop, part showroom, this light-flooded upper studio sports a hickory work table where craftsman Erik Holmberg stitches his popular line of unisex, earthen-hued, durable leather goods: wallets, iPad sleeves, iPhone cases, messenger bags, watch straps, belts, and shoulder bags. You might recognize the moniker J. Stark as James Dean's brooding character in Rebel Without a Cause, but Holmberg is no brooder. He is a craftsman in action, and has now added denim and softer fabrics (scarves, 'kerchiefs, and wax canvas totes) to the mix. Look for the old Tellis Pharmacy sign on King, then head around back and climb the stairs to find this hidden gem.
