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.

Received my new wallet and it has lived up to the highest expectations. Beautiful cordovan leather, perfect stitching and a pleasure to carry around.

Must buy!

Its like a little work of art. Excellent craftmanship and attention to detail. Very clean work. Coupled with great customer service and fast shipping makes for a great buy. I will definitely place more orders in the future.

Fantastic, My Go-To Wallet!

Silas has done it again, fantastic quality on both my cardholders. The Sharkskin and Saffiano leathers are great choices and cannot be beat! Thank you Silas :).
