Artist Bio

North & East Leather is run by Jomar (Maker/Designer/Co-Owner) and his wife Priscilla  (Designer/Co-Owner).  

Jomar is a photographer and was tired of having to pull products from stores to use for a photoshoot so he decided to make it.  He went on a hunt for a leather supplier , bought the appropriate tools, and started crafting away. Jomar has spent a whole year fine-tuning his designs.  And thus, North & East Leather was born.  

North & East Leather first launched it’s product in December 2017 at Maker’s Row in Berkeley, CA.   In September 2018, we outgrew our one car garage workshop and moved into a 600 Sq.Ft. space, 1/4 mile away from downtown Point Richmond, CA.  The new workshop made it possible to take North & East Leather full time, giving ample of space for all the machineries and adding small showroom you can visit.

We are a family and locally owned business.

North & East Leather is a small batch leather goods producer focusing on timeless products.

We had three things in our mind when we started creating our brand: durability, functionality and style. We work with the best materials and design a sturdy and timeless products.
