Welcome to Leatheq!
Serving from the heart of Calgary, Canada's Cowtown, we are more than just a leather store; we're guardians of a dream. Our dream? To craft pieces that aren't merely used but loved and passed down through generations. We're about creating real treasures, pieces that tell a story and improve with age.
A couple of years ago when our love for leather craftsmanship brought us onto the scene, it was disappointing to see sub-standard leather goods being sold at ridiculous prices. We wanted to break the chain of middlemen and the chaos of physical stores. Soon, we realized something – we could connect more intimately with you, our customer, by going directly online. It was a leap of faith, turning our business model on its head, but guess what? It worked wonders! We found ourselves growing better, more attuned to your needs and preferences. And the best part? We ditched those over-the-top marketing campaigns. Our customers became our cheerleaders, their satisfaction and word-of-mouth bringing in a community of leather lovers.
And in our story, our hero isn't just the product but how it's sourced. Ethical sourcing is our mantra. We respect the circle of life, ensuring our leather is a byproduct of the meat industry. It's our way of honoring the natural world, ensuring nothing goes to waste. This respect extends to our tanning process too as we embraced vegetable tanning, an age-old method that's kind to the earth. This process not only gives our products an unmatched quality but also aligns with our environmental ethos.
As our business expanded, we embraced collaboration with artisans worldwide. From the skilled hands in the US to the age-old techniques in Mexico, the rich heritage of India, and the meticulous craftsmanship of China, each region weaves its unique thread into our products. This approach enriches our offerings, ensuring each product isn't just a commodity, but a piece of global heritage and craftsmanship.
In this digital era, our promise to you is simple – luxury at a fair price. We keep it real, no hidden costs, no extravagance, just pure, unadulterated quality. It's a commitment that has seen us through ups and downs, a beacon that guides our every decision.
