I always get compliments on my Tusk wallet (see below). I have been a Tusk devotee for a few years now; these fine leather goods are great quality for great prices. Asian influences are evident throughout the Italian leather goods in spicy, saturated colors through hand-applied vegetable dyes. Sleek organic lines and sumptuous textures are trademarks of a Tusk accessory.
With a 50-year old family-owned factory in India behind them, the Tusk design team in New York City launched the company in 1993. Evoking the Hindu elephant god Ganesh, the symbol of harmony and good fortune that removes all obstacles. In 1999, Tusk added exquisitely designed top grain leather handbags to their line. Tusk's flagship retail store is in the wonderful neighborhood of Chelsea, New York City. My wallet and my other Tusk picks below can be purchased here.
