Jeff of Hand & Hide selects only the finest Italian leather and imports dyed yardage to construct his high quality leathergoods. He cuts, stitches and rivets his materials together with a meticulous attention to detail. Jeff learned to work with leather through a series of travels and a passion to learn. He spent time in Marrakesh, where he stared for hours at the hands of a master until he had to know more. He continued traveling through North Africa, Asia, and the Middle East before returning to Portland to settle and begin his craft of leatherwork full time.
