In the beginning I was researching tools, materials, traditional techniques and trying to figure out how I was going to make my new leathercraft hobby into a business

But I was hitting a wall when it came to finding the answers and information on how to start a leathergoods business.

THIS WAS VERY FRUSTRATING.

I was spending countless hours reading blogs, listening to podcasts, watching youtube and interacting on Facebook groups.

I was all over the place! 

I was doing everything that I could to find the best answers but the information was often times overwhelming and just wasn't quite what I was looking for because it wasn’t directly related to how to start a leathergoods business.

But finally I started to break through some walls. 

I started to put into practice the strategies that other small handmade business owners and leathercrafters are using to get success in their small businesses.

I want to help you learn the exactly how to sell your leathergoods in a fraction of the time that it to for me.

MY START

In 2013 I took a leatherworking workshop from a from a French master leather artisan, who worked at Hermès for 14 years before moving to CA and opening her own leather atelier and leatherworking school in San Francisco, CA.

I feel kind of corny saying this, but it was an amazing experience that kind of changed my life.

 

"I fell in love with traditional leatherworking. I saw a new opportunity in it and it was all I could think about from then on."

 

Once I got back to NYC where I live, I was determined to continue to learn and keep up with my new hobby AND to turn it into a business. At this point, I had been creating small businesses and selling my work since 2008.

So little by little I acquired my set of very expensive tools, one by one. These were the same ones that we had used in her workshop in California and the same ones that she had used while working for Hermès.

I’ve since learned that there a great many other tool options that will fit most budgets and that are very suitable for beginners.

Over the next few years, I practiced, read and studied up on leathercraft and simultaneously started my leather handbag business. It was difficult at times to find the information about how to start a small handmade leathergoods business that I was looking for.

Many times, the lessons came from my own trial and error. There was a big learning curve that required time, patience and money.
