Rick Scotch is by far one of the most humble and genuine guys I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He reached out to me just wanting to hear my story and wanted to know more about how I got into leather craft. We go into a lot of detail about where my ideas come from, where I source leather from and what the future for Stori will look like.
“Tori Mosley grew up in North Carolina, lived in Atlanta and now calls the San Francisco Bay Area home. He has always been an entrepreneur from hustling high-end sneakers, to running his first clothing business, where he learned about the manufacturing process and the fashion industry. His past companies were successful but decided to move on. That's when he discovered his true passion, which was creating leather goods for his company, Stori Dry Goods Co.
In 2014, Tori found himself in a leather shop looking for some leather to use for a product he needed for his clothing business. What he didn't realize was that visit to the leather shop would begin his love for leather. After he finished the project for his clothing business, he decided instead of buying a new wallet from a department store; he would design and build one himself. Tori designed his wallet based on two requirements: minimalism and functionality. He says, "appearance-wise, the wallet was not so good but functionality wise, the wallet worked great."
Two years later in 2016, Stori Dry Goods Co. was officially born. Stori Dry Goods Co. offers handmade leather goods such as bags, belts, wallets, key chains, iPhone bands, and clutches. Tori makes everything by hand, and products can always be customized. You can find Stori Dry Goods Co. generally at big craft shows, online and on social media..”
