Silas Perry, Maker
Leatherbound is a one-man shop. I design and make all the goods myself in addition to running all the other aspects of the business.
I grew up in New Mexico, USA, where I studied Philosophy at the University of New Mexico. Shortly after graduating in 2011, I moved to Taiwan to do a year abroad teaching English. Finding an excellent quality of life here, I extended my stay indefinitely. I launched Leatherbound in 2018 and began doing leatherwork full-time in 2019.
Leatherbound products are handmade using traditional techniques. Cutting, sewing, and finishing are all done by hand. This allows for a high level of refinement, both in strength of construction and aesthetic, not found in mass-produced products.
I stock a very robust offering of vegetable tanned leathers from Italy, France, and Japan from the highest regarded tanneries in the world. These leathers look, smell, and feel great and, of course, age beautifully.
Top tier materials and construction means Leatherbound items will look great for years to come.

Beautiful, thank you!
Amazing wallet!! Beautiful wallet!! Will definitely order another
This is our 2nd purchase from Silas. The first was a minimalist bifold. It was done so beautifully that I just had to get back to Silas when I was looking for a long wallet for my wife.
The wallet was ready in around a month (which was the timeline I was given while placing my order) guys it's worth the wait. It was sent via FedEX for a very reasonable charge.
The wallet itself is meticulously crafted. The inner lining is very well done without any air bubbles between the two layers of leather. The stitching is extremely neat and 9 stitches per inch (most craftsman use 6 stitches per inch) which shows a very high level of skill. The edges are a beauty to look at, they have a mirror polish and are silky smooth. The initials are crisp and straight.
I would definitely recommend you make at least one purchase from Leatherbound and you won't be disappointed. He offers an extremely large variety of leathers to choose from so I'm sure you'll find a leather you like.
PS: Thanks for the gift Silas, I'm sure she'll love it 🙂
I ordered a classic bifold and the craftsmanship and materials are top notch! Silas went above and beyond in helping me select leathers and colors. I’d definitely recommend Leatherbound!
