For more than 30 years, we’ve been inspired by the incredible beauty of the world’s best leathers and a passion for timeless artistry and fine detail. Each and every piece is a unique, master-crafted original to be cherished and enjoyed, for a lifetime and beyond.
Honoring an ancient human connection
For millennia, a unique leather piece, exquisitely crafted by masters, has surely been among our most prized possessions, invoking a deep sense of visceral attraction.
This is the feeling that inspires us. And what we want you to feel for each and every piece we make for you.
Over the decades, we’ve developed a network of artisanal suppliers from around the globe -- many of which also supply the great luxury fashion houses of Europe.
We only use vegetable tanned leathers. Why? They're organic, non toxic and sustainable -- way better for the planet, the people who work with it and the people who wear it. And, happily, vegetable tanned leather is also the most beautiful and longest wearing leather on earth.
Our design inspiration flows from our love of fashion and the timeless artistry of leathercraft through the ages. With hundreds of inspired styles, there is something unique and special for every personal aesthetic.
For us, fashion is all about personal expression. No other leather brand offers so many inspired designs, handcrafted one by one from the world's finest materials, by the world's finest crafts people.
We’re master leather craftsmen in the finest tradition, but we’re not old fashioned. The BRAVE leather workshop combines handcraft and high tech to make the very highest quality product consistently. For instance, we laser-cut our belts but hand-sew the stitching. This approach is unique in North America and allows us to create many hundreds of styles at scale - each and every one, an exquisite little work of art.
Meet our extraordinary family of leather crafters
In an industry dominated mass production in low wage countries, BRAVE Leather has been forging a different path from the beginning. To this day, we handcraft each item in our own workshop, in Toronto, Canada, using the highest quality and most ethical and responsible materials and processes. And at the center of it all is our amazing family of artisans.
Thirty one years ago, he was the first in his family to graduate from university. Imagine his parent’s dismay when he decided to become a leather crafter and street vendor!
Needless to say, it all worked out. Scott’s passion for leather, flair for design and obsession with quality and detail have turned that simple street stand into one of the world’s most stylish and innovative leathercraft operations.
Our Lifetime Warranty
Made for you. For forever.
It doesn't happen much. But if our work ever fails, the same master leather crafters that made it for you, will fix it for you. With pride.
Each piece we make to be the beginning of a life-long love story
Call us sentimental, but we really do think of each piece we make as one of our babies. Which makes every customer part of the family.
We are honored to make something so special, just for you, and pass it into your loving care for a lifetime.
