“Working with my hands and natural materials is a blessing and a passion.”

I am committed to produce leather goods of the highest standard, in return I hope to earn the respect of each person who has added a product to their collection.”

the LEGACY – Why Charles Lansdown

Named in honor of my Grandfather Mr. Charles Lansdown.

He was a man known and respected for his integrity and kindness.  He had a flare for fashion, especially well tailored suits and fine crafted accessories.  He blessed me with one principle in life “what you give out is what you get back” – CHARLES LANSDOWN Tailored Leathers was born.

Leather

The beauty of true leather is that it gets better with age. Even with a harsh battering, leather takes on a worn look which affords it character often by a texture softened by the hands of time. Our collection takes full advantage of the way leather ages and builds its own character: every piece becomes more uniquely yours as it matures through the journey of your life.

Our hides are individually chosen for their quality, character and strength.

 

Staff

Our family of Leathersmith’s working on CHARLES LANSDOWN pieces, go through years of apprenticeship and training before being able to take on specific ranges. Every single piece is handmade with attention to detail, by that artist.
