About the Handmade Leather Goods


Dawn DeVito began sewing in 2020 during the pandemic to help with the shortage of masks. A few years later, and she's now the sole creator of Amidst the Alders' sustainable leather goods line.


She finds solace in her sunroom, making beautiful goods using a variety of techniques and repurposing leather from secondary tanneries, old sofas, jackets and more. Her work has become well-known in the small community of Beaufort, SC, and is highly sought-after for her incredible crafts(wo)manship and attention to detail.


She also just so happens to be the mother of Matt, co-owner of Amidst the Alders!
