A Brooks saddle is pretty handsome to begin with, but Kara Ginther has managed to make them even better, thanks to some leather carving tools and some clever design. These bike seats (hat tip) are designed to look like anything from a vintage map to a Fair Isle sweater. And if you’ve got an even better design in mind, it won’t be hard to arrange; at the moment, they’re all custom jobs, arranged through Ginther’s Etsy site.
