Every Leatherbound product is cut, sewn, and finished entirely by hand. This allows for a high level of refinement, both in strength of construction and aesthetic, not found in factory-made products.
Vegetable tanned leather from Italy, France, Belgium, and Japan from the highest regarded tanneries in the world are used exclusively. 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.
Silas Perry, Maker
Leatherbound is a one-man shop. I design and make all the goods myself in addition to running all aspects of the business.
I grew up in New Mexico, USA. After university, I moved to Taiwan for a little adventure. What was originally intended to be short-term, became long-term and I ending up teaching English here for seven years.
I began making small leather goods in 2016. I launched Leatherbound in 2018, and in mid-2019, I relinquished my teaching position to focus on leatherwork full time.

Fantastic wallet, you can see and feel (and smell!) the quality leather and construction. Pleasantly surprised with the modern bifold style, works great holding cash even without the dedicated pocket, and is very slim. Highly recommend the shinki shell cordovan...well worth the small premium!
On top of that, had a small issue with delivery at first- Silas could not have been more helpful and responsive, making sure it got to me promptly!
I picked this up at a reduced priced, ready made. The quality upon opening the (carefully packaged) item was obvious. A lot of care has been put in to its construction by an independent craftsman. More robust and stylish than any 'branded' wallet I've gone through in the past.
I thought ordering internationally would mean it would take a while to arrive - understandably - but delivery was incredibly prompt.
I commissioned Silas to use the patch of ortensia leather with the most contrast to match my Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl fountain pen. True enough to his recommendation, 6 months in and the bifold has developed a great patina. Even with my rough handling of the wallet, the stitching has held up wonderfully and show no sign of fraying. Would gladly recommend to friends
Hot stamping looks fantastic. Very elegant and simple. Highly recommend.
I had been searching for somewhere to get a bespoke leather wallet made as a gift and this was just what I was looking for. The whole ordering process was easy and very personal and the final product was fantastic. Will definitely recommend to others! Thanks again.
