Leaders in Leather Hand tooled bags and wallets

Leaders in Leather is an international leather goods manufacturer founded by Chilean designer, Ricardo Zuniga. The label's trendsetting handbags and leather goods are functional with a contemporary sensibility. Their original designs are inspired by traditional Paraguayan tooling which has been passed down through generations of artisans.  The entire process from the tanning of the hides, to the smallest finishing details, is exquisitely displayed in each finished masterpiece. Leaders in Leather originally started in a cottage industry so that both men and women could stay at home to work and take care of their families. Now most of the work is done in their own factory. They have had three generations of families making these awesome bags and wallets.   All products are handmade and hand tooled.  Leaders in Leather uses a high quality, eco-friendly European vegetable dye for all of their items.
