Not everybody has a Le Tour de France bicycle so we constantly have to deal with the sad reality of lifting heavy bicycles to hook them up to the MAX or going up to the stairs. Suffer no more with our new bicycle handle. By locating this strap in the triangle of your bike your bicycle will get surprisingly lighter. Fear not, this is no optical illusion nor anything out of the show Grimm, this is mere science and physics. By carrying your bike from this position you enable your muscle to use its full strength.
At Orox Leather, our business is definitely personal. Following in the footsteps of our great-grandfather, all of our creations are made by hand with the skill of a practiced craftsman and the attention to detail of an innovative artist. Built to last, we strive to design a craft worthy of pride, an heirloom to pass on from one generation to the next. And because we never settle for second best, we are dedicated to bringing you only the highest quality product, which is why we use domestically sourced leather and sustainable (often even recycled) trappings. We welcome you to our shop and encourage you to explore our wide range of artisan products, made with you always in mind.
"Call it what you want – PDX, P-town, Stumptown, City of Roses, Bridge City or Beervana – Portland positively rocks. It’s a city with a vibrant downtown, pretty residential neighborhoods, ultragreen ambitions and zany characters. Here liberal idealists outnumber conservative stogies, Gortex jackets are acceptable in fine restaurants and everyone supports countless brewpubs, coffeehouses, knitting circles, lesbian potlucks and book clubs. Portland is an up-and-coming destination that has finally found itself, and an appealing, can’t-miss stop on your adventures in the Pacific Northwest." - Lonely Planet
Shopping local is more than a trend — it is the future of a sustainable economy. Studies show that when you purchase products from small local businesses, 68% of the profits go back into that business' local economy, creating more jobs, opportunity and growth. However, when you purchase items from a larger company, only 43% of the profits go back into the community — the rest is wasted on the bloat accrued by such a large entity and, ultimately, into the pockets of shareholders. Where would you rather put your dollars?
