Talia Halliday started Conduit Press on her dining room table in 2008 with scrap paper and staples. Her brand has now grown into a full-blown line of leather goods ranging from high quality leather journals and sketchbooks to leather clutches, bags, wallets and vessels. Each piece is Lovingly made by hand in her studio in Bloomington, IN. You can find Conduit Press all over the United States in galleries and boutiques, and once per year at the Bloomington Handmade Market. Conduit Press has been vending with the BHM since the beginning and is now (and has been) an organizer of BHM as well as owner of Gather, a shop that specializes in creating a community around handmade goods.
