Creating handmade, heirloom-quality, leather goods, one at a time.

Welcome to Sorringowl & Sons, home of The Original Standard, Pipe & Tobacco Pouch. All of my items are my own, original designs and all are handmade in the U.S.A., in my leather goods studio, here, in Los Angeles, California.

When I started smoking a pipe, in 2010, I couldn't find a quality, U.S. made, leather pipe pouch. So, I started making my own. At the time, I was a full-time, furniture maker and, sitting in my woodshop one day, smoking my pipe, I was inspired by an old tool roll I found at a flea market. I thought, "why can't someone make a pipe pouch like that?" Simple, well made, beautiful, and feels good in the hand. So I set out to do just that.

The first versions of my pipe pouch were rough, but, from showing them to my online pipe forum buddies, getting their feedback, and through lots of trial and error, I eventually came up with the "roll up" design for The Standard, and something clicked. Suddenly, I was getting enough orders that I had to choose between making furniture, and making pipe pouches. The choice was easy (although, woodworking is still a hobby : )

Since then, this design has apparently struck a chord with the pipe community, and, most importantly, with people, like yourself, looking for good quality, handmade in the U.S.A, leather pipe and cigar accessories that not only look and feel good, but are unique and are built to last forever.

Please feel free to browse my shop, and let me know if you have any questions. I love collaborating with my customers! Thanks for looking!
