I see myself as a lifelong servant of the leather-craft. My mission is to help people understand and experience leather better. In order to serve this mission I create content to inform people about leather and brands in today's market. And on the other side of that coin, I create my own portfolio of leather crafts in my family owned workshop using extremely unique and natural leathers curated around the world from specialty tanneries so you get to experience the unforgettable feel of true artisan leather. Please make yourself home and dive into leathertainment through this website and let me know if I can help in anyway!
I'm a father, a tanner, and a humanitarian.
My top-most priority is being a good father to my two handsome boys and a good husband to my wife. I will be forever thankful for the support and inspiration they give to me. They are all of my reasons.
Second, I am a tanner and entrepreneur. I'm passionate about leather and willing to show up for any task that may be assigned to me in order to help you understand and enjoy the great resource leather.
Lastly, I am a humanitarian. A part of our profits from all of my brands is donated to charities. Currently, I am working with Save the Children organization to fulfill this duty of mine.
At age eleven, I tanned my first five sheepskin to create my leather jacket. Since then, what started as a play became a lifetime passion of mine.
I was once a cab driver in Chicago. I sold textiles and was a truck driver in New York. I've done many different things before going back to leather crafting.
In my 20-years of experience, I've worked in different aspects of leather in about five different countries. Now, I'm dedicating myself to help people understand and use leather to its best potential, to elevate their lifestyles, and to help them organize in a stylish manner.
"Never give up especially if you love what you do. Just keep trying and never stop learning."

Become part of the Tanner's Club!
It is my mission to elevate your life through leather and to do that, I'll have to inform you about the different misconceptions on leather. Large luxury companies take advantage of this lack of knowledge and offer you mediocre products. Through Tanner's Club, we will not only inform you but also entertain you on different leather topics.
