There was a time, not so long ago, when Molly Spittal’s life felt like a giant puzzle—with one piece missing. She had gone to fashion school in Vancouver, had worked for various designers, and had considered starting her own apparel line, but, as she says, “It just never felt right.”
All it took was one crappy accessory for everything to fall into place. Molly had scored a leather belt that was perfect in every way except for its short lifespan, and when it fell apart, she went hunting for someone who could save it. “I brought it down to this leather shop, and the guy there basically showed me how to fix it,” she recalls. “It was the moment I fell in love with leather.”
Molly doesn’t have traditional training in that realm, but that’s hardly stopped her: She’s been making bags since 2011, and, in 2013, she went full-time on her impossibly slick, Montreal-based line The Stowe. As of now, each duffle, belt, and keychain is hand-cut and -stitched by Molly herself. “It is the most satisfying thing,” she says. “You have a really great idea that you can just translate into a new product—and it works.” —jackie varriano
