Leatherbound: Fine Handmade Leather Goods

Hello Friends. I wanted to share something with you today and that is my son's business, called Leatherbound. My son, Silas started a business last year making items using leather. He hand stitches it all and does an excellent job! Yes I know I am his mother and of course I am biased, but I have seen his work in person and you would be hard pressed to tell if it was hand or machine stitched! A machine might be in his future, but for now it's all hand stitched! I am proud of him of course as any mother would be, but mainly because he is a good person with a caring heart. What more could a mother ask for?

Funny that he ended up making mostly wallets. I wonder if I had any influence on him at all? While he chose to work with real leather (there are many kinds of leather out there, but Silas uses the best quality) I prefer to use cotton fabric. I found out a lot of interesting things about leather from him and before you buy a handmade leather item anywhere, you might want to read his article explaining about how to buy a leather wallet that will last a long time. In this posting Silas explains what to look for when buying a good quality wallet. Also read Leather Buying Guide, which explains the different types of leather and the process that leather goes through. He doesn't buy leather from tanneries that use harmful chemicals, he uses vegetable tanned leather. The quality of his leather is heads and tails different from most leather I have ever seen or touched.

In this blog posting Silas shows the tools he uses to make a minimalist wallet. He also writes another posting about making a bifold. He sells watch bands and field notebook covers and pen cases too.

I hope that if you are ever in the need for a quality made leather item, that you will visit Leatherbound and tell my son that his mother sent you, lol!!! Shipping is FREE worldwide.

I am not an affiliate of my son's business. I am just a mother wanting her son to do well and succeed with whatever he wants to do, but most importantly I want him to live a happy life whatever he might do.

  3. So you should be proud; the quality of craftsmanship is unmistakable. You joke about influencing him, but surely there must have been some sort of artistry passed on... do you recall him being interested in what you did when he was a child?

  6. Daryl, those look amazing! I am bookmarking this for later in the summer when I'll begin buying Christmas gifts. I have a checkbook cover my husband bought and used for several years before he died. I've used it for 9 years since, and it has a wonderful patina and well-used look. If you divide the years of use into the cost, it is so reasonable! I'm a person who likes things to last so I don't have to adjust to something new. =)
