About Saltwater Leather Co

Welcome to Saltwater Leather Co, a family-owned leather working company rooted in passion, craftsmanship, and a deep love for the ocean.

Our story began over a decade ago when I, Jamie, first discovered the art of working with leather. What started as a personal fascination soon transformed into a lifelong passion. In 2019, driven by a desire to share this passion with others, I founded Saltwater Leather Co. Little did I know that our family would play an integral role in shaping our company's identity.

During the challenging times of the pandemic, my son, Chase, found solace and inspiration in the craft of leather working. His dedication and creative spirit breathed new life into our endeavor, leading to the birth of Saltwater Leather Co. Together, with my youngest son, Roman, who lends his talent as our pattern maker and product designer, we formed a tight-knit team, united by our shared love for craftsmanship and our devotion to the art of leather working. My husband Lance, and Daughter Lauren's unwavering support have kept us motivated to pursue excellence everyday.

Living on the coast, we have always felt an undeniable connection to the ocean. It’s the place we go in good times and bad. As surfers, enthusiasts, and ocean conservationists, we found that "Saltwater" perfectly encapsulated our shared love and respect for the sea. It became the one thing that binds us all, representing our values and the spirit of our company.

At Saltwater Leather Co, we take immense pride in our craftsmanship. We blend old-world techniques with modern tools, creating exquisite leather goods that embody both tradition and innovation. Every piece we craft is infused with our dedication to quality and attention to detail. We believe in creating heirloom-quality products that stand the test of time, passing down a legacy from one generation to the next. We want our products to not only bring joy to their owners but to become cherished companions throughout life's journeys. We understand that our customers value authenticity and sustainable practices. That's why we are committed to using vegetable-tanned leather, an environmentally friendly alternative that ages beautifully and develops a rich patina over time. We believe in responsible craftsmanship that leaves a positive impact on both the planet and your style.

Thank you for visiting us and letting us share our story. We invite you to explore our collection of thoughtfully crafted leather goods and discover the beauty and quality that comes from a family united by a shared craft. And we thank you for joining us on this leather-crafting journey. We can't wait to see where your Saltwater Leather Co. piece takes you next!
