MADE BY HAND. STITCHED BY HAND. FOR LIFE.
All of my products are completely made by hand, This means everything from cutting to stitching to burnishing is all performed by hand using traditional tools and techniques. This method makes possible the highest measure of precision resulting in a fundamentally more durable product. For this reason I gladly honour a lifetime warranty on all of my work.
"My interest in leather as a medium began in Hamilton, Ontario when I come across a local leather supply retailer, Tundra Leather. I made my first messenger bag in the first year of my undergrad and spent a few years doing bag requests for friends and family.
In the Fall of 2014, Gusset Leather made it's debut appearance at SuperCrawl in Hamilton, Ontario. I took my business name from the technical term for the part of a messenger bag spanning the side between the flap and back of the bag - the 'gusset'. Since the vast majority of my work involves making purses, bags, and satchels, the name seemed fitting.
Today, Gusset Leather seeks to create unique, durable, aesthetically brilliant handmade pieces."
