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.

About Me

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.


Modern Bifold Construction

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.

Minimalist wallet

Love the wallet! Shipping pretty fast as well

Love it

Everything I didn’t know I wanted. Quality is perfection and the attention to detail is superb.

Customized Wallet

I cannot begin to say THANK YOU for your excellent service and for the amazing work you do. My son's wallet is gorgeous and like nothing we have ever seen. The quality of the design and materials are outstanding. Whenever I had a concern or worry, you took the time to respond to ALL my emails and put me at ease. Truly a work of art your service and workmanship are.

Thank you again.

Custom Cordovan bifold with coin pocket

I found Silas from the leathercraft community on reddit. Silas does not make any bifold wallets with a coin pocket but he was able to customise it for me. I just received it yesterday, the shipping was really fast! It took about 3 business days to Australia (sent on the 24th Dec and arrived on 30 Dec).

I had ordered the burgundy cordovan exterior with the rose buttero interior. I saw the rose buttero on Leatherbound’s Instagram page, the actual colour was slightly darker then the Instagram image but still complements the burgundy cordovan really well.

Silas is a brilliant leathercrafter, his stitches are perfect and all the edges are creased, beveled and burnished. It looks like a wallet you can buy from a luxury brand!

100% recommend and if I need any more wallets I wont hesitate to go back to Silas!
