Saint Crispin Leatherworks was providentially gifted to us from a desire to bring to life the ideas and creations in our imaginations and share them with all of you. Our focus is to fashion enduring, high quality, functional yet striking leather and textile goods that are show stoppers and conversation starters. Our intention to create these high quality, handcrafted goods in Maine stems from our desire to be able to soon provide opportunities for other local sewists to use their talents to bring our creations to life and tell our unique stories and theirs.
Our leathers are each beautiful in their own right and have their own original and unique variations in texture and color and the natural grain. Natural hides have subtle healed scars and scratches and brands, which we believe adds to the beauty and originality.
Our wish is to also breathe new life into old things – reclaiming and upcyling leather clothing and textiles that might otherwise end up in landfills.
In a world where more and more consumer goods are mass produced in cookie-cutter fashion, we take pride in handmaking items that express the joy we receive from the tactile nature of working with leather and fabrics. Our love of the beauty and unique nature of leather has instilled a passion for combining that love with unique and vibrant textiles.
