Erik Desjarlais @ Weft & Warp Seamster

Former chef Erik Desjarlais has written an article for Find Eat Drink about his new career as a craftsman. His business Weft & Warp Seamster produces hand-crafted knife rolls.

I picked up the Chandler Adler sewing machine, (“Mule”, as I call her) and the hand tools. The touch quickly came back to me, and the soft whirr stirred up fond memories of working in Grandpa’s shop. I made a few knife rolls, based on the design of my twenty year old roll. One for my wife, then one for my knives. Trial and error brought me to a design I was happy with, and I sold a slew of them before Christmas. And so was born Weft & Warp Seamster.
