About Cogliano Leatherworks
Custom Handmade Leather Goods
Hi, I'm Rich!
I'm a husband, father, volunteer firefighter, emergency manager, and a leather worker.
I have been passionate about high quality leather goods for years, believing it better to buy quality and buy once. In 2016, I chose to start making my own leather goods because I wanted to create unique and quality items for my own use. I quickly fell in love with leather working and started selling some of my products.
Every item you see in my shop, from bags to coffee sleeves, is made 100% by hand. I order leather by the "side," cut the pieces, glue, stitch, and rivet them together. Once assembled the edges are sanded and each product is hand rubbed with a unique blend of oils and waxes to nourish and preserve the leather.
I believe that these products will last more than a lifetime and I build each one to last. Over time, each product will patina, taking on oils from your hands, water and coffee spilled on it, and even darkening in sunlight. The more you use it, the more it becomes uniquely yours.
