On today’s episode we are joined by Joshua Gebreyes of Tibeb Leatherworks. Joshua is an architecture student interning from Ethiopia, who is crafting beautiful leather-bound journals and wallets using Ethiopian fabrics and prints.
Joshua, 4 friends, and his brother began by making leather goods for themselves, but eventually decided to start crafting them to be sold. They combine their passion for Ethiopian culture, architecture, and design to create stunning leather products.
This week on Small Business War Stories, Joshua Gebreyes join us from his internship in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
