ChahinLeather® is a family-owned tannery that was founded in 1932 by Angel Chahin Sr. The traditions and values have since carried on for three generations. The skills and knowledge that have been acquired over eight decades are part of their heritage will continue to be passed onto future generations.
Through the years, the machinery and technologies used may have changed but they still make their leather using the same artisanal process as in the beginning. They understand that good things take time. Like a fine wine or bourbon, crafting the best leather shouldn’t be rushed. The vegetable tanning process takes nearly 40 days using high quality hides and natural vegetable tannins. This leather is known for creating finished products that not only become richer as they are used, but also develops a patina over time. With proper care, products made with vegetable tanned leather can last a lifetime.
From the time the tannery receives the hides, until the leather is finished, they not only keep you and your projects in mind but also those that will be using the leather goods. Full grain ChahinLeather® is versatile and possibilities for use are nearly limitless. Every project you create is as unique as the leather itself. We are proud to have our leather be part of your story.
