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.
